@Rosemary Thank you for that clarification. @Heidi Hecht I see what you mean. You're worried about posters copy/pasting entire articles or chunks of text from other places without attribution or indicating it's a quote.
Exactly right. I see it as, if I decide to move my content from my blog over to Narrative, that's fine because it's my content. But if I steal stuff from other people's websites without attribution, I'd expect to be dinged in reputation and removed from niches by alert moderators who think to check for plagiarism at the minimum.
Ever since this niche was suggested, I've been trying to figure out what kind of question I could ask that wouldn't make me just like everyone else asking questions. Maybe it's this ... What kind of question would one ask the Ask Narrative niche if one wanted to be different from every other asker?
@Onlinedollars The questions can be about ANYTHING that doesn't violate the AUP. As per my recently approve edit request, the niche definition requires the title to be in the form of a question, and it can't be rhetorical. You have to be looking for people to answer the question in the comments. @Garden Gnome Publications I haven't looked at the platform yet today (got here from my email notifications) so that would be a great question to ask that would give every respondent a post of their...
I'm in touch with a G+ member who joined Narrative (Denis). He mentioned on the Narrative G+ community ( https://plus.google.com/commun...18312125325383497859 ) that he never received the content drafting sneak preview news email. The only thing that I can think of is that he is not a member of the community forums here: I think he was put off by having to make yet another account on top of his Narrative alpha one. Shouldn't he still be receiving the news emails? Or is that switched off by...
Like Dave said, we do not auto-opt in anyone to unsolicited emails. People have the option of opting into the newsletter when they sign up for the waitlist. For now, the logins will remain separate for Community and Alpha, however, it is on our radar for review!
Just to add up to point 2, and as posted on an old forum thread: I'd love to have a date box that can auto-publish posts when said date is reached. And for it to also support past dates, which are useful for older and imported content to indicate that it's not new and/or exclusive to Narrative.
This helps the completed check mark box. but not totally. A person still may not know when they want to auto post for, but would like to see at a glance what is done, with final edits....I personally find myself opening drafts over and over again because I can't remember if i finished and edited or not. Plight of the middle-aged and up.
I have a few things that should be specifically published in September, October, and before Thanksgiving in my drafts right now. (There will be more! But I'm still going through old content to repurpose, so now I have Children's Eye Health Month, Diabetes Awareness Month, and something about Thanksgiving.) Supporting past dates would be amazing, too, as I have things I'd written way back in 2006 and up that have required some editorial notation to let people know the personal narrative is...
Hi Katherine, Narrative saves your drafts every 10 seconds while you are working on them. If you lose your place don't hit back. Your browser might lose your work. Instead jump back into your drafts list under manage posts and you should find your draft almost just as you left it. At worst you should only lose 10 seconds worth of work that way.
I'd really like to second this. Some editors will want to take a collaborative approach to editing certain pieces, where the writer can be involved. Saving drafts is extremely important for the reasons @Christina Gleason underlined, but it would also allow the writer to see the changes being made, to facilitate discussion. For the writer, once the piece has been submitted to the publication, the draft should be read only. But allowing this sort transparency for the writer will allow dialogue...
Hmm. If you have a post in your review queue, click on the post and click edit you can edit to your heart's content, click next and then post and it should not go live. It should just go right back into the review queue. You'll get the popup to approve or edit again. Are you seeing something else?
So if I do hit the Publish button but not Approve, it stays in my review queue? It didn't occur to me that it might work this way because Publish suggests GO LIVE. It's not a strategic time for me to take the risk of testing it out now, but I'll give it a shot tomorrow when I re-edit and report back with my findings.
It's a consistent work flow. If you create your own post for a publication that you or someone else owns and go through the process it is exactly the same work flow with exactly the same form and buttons. We wouldn't want a completely different flow for what is essentially the same activity. The content doesn't go live until it is approved.
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
