Somewhere here there is a blog entry that Molly wrote for that, but the quick answer is to go to your niche from your profile. On the niche page click the 3 dots, then click management hub. Click niche settings, and there you have it.

Since you've requested 3 moderators, I'm going to assume you've figured out how to change the number of moderators needed for your niches. How does one do this? I haven't been able to figure it out.

Redundancy in "Story" niches

Christina Gleason ·
I haven't published any substantive non-Narrative related content in a while, and I've been looking at some of my drafted posts and trying to figure out which niches might be most appropriate. I came across a problem when it comes to active niches that seem to be fairly interchangeable, aka redundant. I don't know how this can be best resolved, so I wanted to bring it up as a topic of conversation among community members and, if they have accounts on the Support Community, the niche owners...

The two that seem the most redundant to me are "Story" and "Storytime", but they could be differentiated if the definitions changed so one focuses on fiction, and the other real world occurrences - and the names changed to reflect those differences. But then how much does the former overlap with the Fiction niche? "True Story" homes in on the kind of story you preface with "True story..." because otherwise people would assume it is too strange to be true. So not just real world occurrences,...

I found another one that fits the "True Story..." mold This One Time Owned by @Cam . "A place to share and discuss stories, experiences, and unique life events & perspectives. It could be something crazy, life changing, a challenge you overcame, or how you learned from a mistake."

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

Teddy ·
From the very first I intended "Tell your story" as a place for sharing personal stories. These stories should make life changes and be a source of encouragment for the readers. At the moment I can't change anything in my niche, because of the restrictions. Christina, you are warmly welcomed to share your stories, if you think it would fit in this niche. All the best, Teddy.

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

Malkazoid ·
I agree - this is a real problem. What I am forced to do, in order to stay sane when thinking and talking about niches, is to work with my understanding that the definition is as important as the name, and should not contradict the most common interpretation of the name. When all functions surrounding a niche are taken into account, including the crucial role the definition will play in moderation, it becomes clear that the name and the definition cannot be considered separately or given...

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

I see this as much more fitting of the "Tell your story" mold. Both this one and "Tell your story" set the scope as life experiences, focusing on the experiences of the poster, and very broadly so. "True Story" as I mentioned, is clearly more restricted to true stories that defy belief in some way. The only similarity here, is that "This One Time" mentions as an example that the posts can be about something crazy. But it also makes very clear that the posts can also be about pretty much...

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

The one that is questionable to me is "Storytime." That appears to be an obvious attempt to be all things to all people. "Share personal stories or make up stories. All topics welcome." In other words, just tell us something, and whatever it is, we'll call it a story. I also don't get "This One Time." It appears to be about the same thing @Teddy wants his to be about, although it is poorly named.

@ GARDEN GNOME PUBLICATIONS Hi! Allmost true :-) Every personal story can be a life changing story! But the niche let every one tell his life story. If this story a life-changing story is or not, the decision is by reader.

For me, there are always basic problems that invalidate all discussions around niches. We still don't know which is the weight of the description, nor we have policies for this, nor tools for official discussion/fixing in the community. On one side, a wrong definition can: let a niche suggestion be rejected, generate confusion in moderation, generate confusion in members (like in this case) who can't know what overlaps what, or what is actually ill-defined. In some cases, the description has...

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

I completely agree, and my comment only really meant to bear on the way niches are looked at by the Tribunal. Back in the day before any of this was in practice, and the platform was but a twinkle in everyone's eye, we thought the earlier niche should win. Now it seems apparent that though precedence should be a factor, so should niche popularity (if both niches are active), and niche owner effort (insofar as that effort can be detected). So I completely agree with your take on "Tell Your...

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

I'm on the same page with you @Malkazoid . But I also see @Vico Biscotti 's point. If we take issue with "This One Time," it was suggested and approved before "Tell Your Story," which is actively being posted to and has earned its owner some NRVE. "This One Time" has been posted to once with a low-quality, irrelevant post. Yet, if we challenged it, according to current rules, "This One Time" would win. I wouldn't want to do that to @Teddy , who has already endured a punishment too harsh for...

To me Tell Your Story is a very good, clear niche. I used it 3 times or so to tell my personal stories and I had no doubt where to tag these pieces. I never came across This One Time before and to me, it should be appealed for rejection but I get the reasons why we shouldn't do it now as explained by @Garden Gnome Publications . Story niche is kind of OK... But I'm not sure 100% what should go there. I use it as a third niche for my fictional stories, on the top of Fiction / Speculative...

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

Perhaps, if Teddy does do an edit (you are right, he can), the 'personal' would be more useful if it is in the niche title? The only weakness I see in his niche title/description is that the title may not differentiate itself enough from the other story niche titles? Like you, I think the definition does make things pretty clear. Just the way I came at it.

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

Christina Gleason ·
The inconsistency of the Tribunal voting is one reason why I wouldn't even consider any type of appeal on any of these. That's why I wanted it to be a conversation in here, hopefully with all of the respective niche owners involved so they can clarify their various definitions to make it more obvious what makes each of them unique.

I agree. The only legitimate way to have an "and" in a niche name is if it is meant as a logical 'intersect' operation, as opposed to a logical 'union' operation.

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

That should definitely be appealed. It only passed with a 65% vote, and it shouldn't have. You can't just smoosh two categories together. I don't know if they're active or not, but I know that Fantasy and Fiction were approved as separate niches.

@gosia.rokicka I agree that the title may lead to some confusion, maybe the community can help me figure out what do do. What I mean by Short-Stories (Text Only) is only text prose content. Meaning no comic strips, no "Shorts" (shorter that 20 minute movies), no podcasts that could be considered stories, etc. I'd appreciate some thoughts on how this could be made more transparent.

Hey @Nuno Moreiras , thanks for your explanation! Yeah, like Christina, I didn't understand it this way. Now I do, I moved 2 stories of mine that fit the description wordcount-wise to your niche. But I think the name is not great. I would put the "text only" part in the definition/description though! That's why we've got them So something like this: Short Stories Fiction or Non-Fiction prose (300 to 10,000 words), written stories only (no comic strips, podcasts, short films etc.) All genres...

@gardengnomepubs I have submitted short stories with 1-3 images myself. The focus here is the media in which the story is conveyed There is another Short Story Niche but it's " Short stories of any topic consisting of 1 picture and a 1000 words (excluding title, author information and references) exactly " I'm not sure if they mean EXACTLY 1000 words, if they do there would be no overlap between niches and I could cut the "(text only)" part off the title, but that wouldn't solve the problem...

@Nuno Moreiras , an edit along the lines of what @Gosia Rokicka suggested would be apropos. What you have to worry about is making sure you don't send the impression we've already all received--that this is a niche for text-only and no images. The way it currently reads, I think that's the impression most people are going to get. You'll likely get more submissions if you make that more clear.

I think the "Tell Your Story" niche makes things clear enough in the description with 'by telling your life experience ' it could be beefed up by adding "personal" before "life experience", but to me it's already clear enough. And aren't niche edits allowed even if a member has been conduct redistricted? Not that I think the niche needs it,

True Story -as in stories that really happened but are so unlikely as to be unbelievable -seems pretty good Story - needs a name edit - if the definition zeroed in on calling for creators who want constructive feedback on their stories - would make the niche unique.

I don't know if you're part of the "American Pie" (movie) generation, but I can't help but think of "This one time, at band camp..." when I see the name of this one. It feels like it's meant specifically for stories that take an unexpected twist that make it humorous, but that's not what the description/definition says.

Re: Redundancy in "Story" niches

@Nuno Moreiras I'm not sure that mentioning moderators is necessary. If you changed "Moderators and users" to "Narrators" it would be more succinct, and allow you to put spaces between all sentences. I highly recommend a niche name change to "Short Stories" without any punctuation.

I agree with Christina that it's better to leave the name without punctuation. I would also change moderators and users to Narrators to save space. But I would definitely leave the word count. It differentiates your niche from Flash Fiction which is up to 300 words and I think it's very important to have this distinction.

I'm not sure you need the sentence about moderators and users. If you change the name to Short Stories, then you can make the definition "Short stories, fiction and nonfiction, up to 10,000 words. All genres welcome. Images may accompany stories, but no comic strips, videos, or other media presentations. Text-only stories." You want it to be succinct, but clear.

@Garden Gnome Publications The sentence about reviewing is there because I make an effort to review all posts according to grammar, plot, punctuation, pace of writing, etc. and I want people to know that, besides I think it fits humorously in the description, but yes, it might be redundant, I'll think about keeping it or not. Thanks for the input.
