Niche membership privacy

Malkazoid ·
I was asked the following question by a G+ user today, about Narrative: That's G+ speak for: will everyone be able to see what niches you are a follower of, and will everyone be able to see all your posts by looking at your profile? That's an approximate translation, considering G+ circles are a social networking component that Narrative has no equivalent for, and apparently no plans to implement. (This lack of a strongly social component to the Narrative paradigm may prove to be...

Hi Malk, In Narrative all posts are public. There is no concept of private posts. Everything you post is out there to be seen. Now, as to which Niches you're following, that's different, and is part of your Member Profile. Right now there is no way for anyone to view what Niches another individual is following, what other Members they may be following. As we move along though, visibility of some of those things will become options that you as a Member will to able to decide. You'll be able...

Feedback on niches from Google+ land

Malkazoid ·
Hi all, So it has been eye-opening already, this little foray into Google+ land. I've gleaned so far that to some folks, there's resistance to the notion of having to pay for niches, which is compounded by the seemingly high NRVE prices of niches, and confused further by the fact that those prices fluctuate alot from auction to auction. People are coming away underwhelmed from their visit to the alpha, and there are multiple layers to the problem. Paying for niches I too was initially turned...

Waiting list round 21, 100,000 signups unlock threshold?

Malkazoid ·
Hello Just noticed that after rolling over into round 21, the unlock threshold has changed from 500, to a whopping 100,000? Was this something that was programmed a long time ago, and not looked at again? Or do we really want to stop admitting new people to the alpha now? That's the effect of this super high threshold: there will be no new alpha users until Beta Launch unless the threshold is lowered. The timing is unfortunate: we're just getting into gear to encourage G+ users to jump into...

Building a sustainable business model

Malkazoid ·
Hi @Rosemary, I enjoyed your blog post a lot: https://blog.narrative.network...s-model-44cb93cf188d I've posted it on the G+ community I set up to help alert G+ users to Narrative as an option to migrate to when G+ shuts down in a few months. https://plus.google.com/u/0/co...18312125325383497859 Can I make one suggestion? Many will have the expectation of environmental sustainability, from the title of the article, but also strongly from the image you chose. It is a bit...

Hi @Malkazoid - thanks for digging in on this subject. Narrative isn't really a "blockchain project" anyway. We use blockchain only for the cryptocurrency- the currency of the network. The rest though is not blockchain and does not require proof of work or any other type of blockchain "proof". We're of course following many of the principles of blockchain regardless of the underlying technology. Specifically, the goal is to be as transparent as possible and to give all members autonomy-...

Thanks @Ted . So any means you folks can think up to make some of your points more readily apparent to fresh alpha users could help. Regarding the cost of niches, and publications - that's only relevant to community and group owners on other platforms - but they are very important to us because they are influencers. When a community from those platforms chooses Narrative, they are going to bring with them hundreds, thousands, and sometimes hundreds of thousands of their members. So please do...

Re: Feedback on niches from Google+ land

Spot on @Erik Blair . We're not any closer to answers to many of those questions, than when the first niches were bought right at the beginning of the Alpha. I think our resource documents are due for a refresh. Some of them have outdated stats being reported (for instance our how-to-guide for buying crypto dates from July and mentions 1000 users in the Alpha - we're now close to 6000). But mostly, they should be refreshed to provide as much clarity on some of these questions, as possible. I...

The hurdles I see, and perhaps this is another topic entirely, is not the $75 entry fee per niche, it's the unknown effort avenues and unknown ROIs that are, well, unexplained in layman terms. 1. The $75 entry fee per niche is fine so long as the niche owners are not tasked with ever-increasing responsibilities for little to no ROI or even any model of future ROI. Paying for niches using Crypto is also problematic (riddled with hassles). But because of the mysterious 'next phases' during the...

That's smart, and I think it is all we can expect our friends on Google+ to do. Join the Alpha, take a small stake with perhaps one niche, build their reputation a bit, and see how things pan out. I think the publishing aspect is going to be Narrative's own implementation, but I would be very surprised if the style deviates very much from Medium's. But that's just me hypothesizing.

Once I know more about what the publishing platform will look like (praying Narrative has partnered with Medium), I may consider doing all three, Niche Owner, Niche Moderator, and Niche Content Creator--to diversify and expand my Narrative portfolio. But at this point, I have established my virtual foot in the door and await further info before I march forward into prosperity

Nice - the latest round had a good rate of sign ups then... Easy to take the stats page for granted now that it has been with us all of one month! The tech era has spoiled us rotten. But when I remember to, I really appreciate it being there!
