Suggestion

Rewards for republished content should be brought back.

Vico Biscotti ·
Currently, the platform is not a nice showcase for quality authors. Nor has fully functional tools. Spending hours on original content that is quickly flushed away from the shot of a lunch supported by voting circles is not fun. Canceling rewards for republished content may mean removing one the few reasons for quality authors to be here in this early period. Full rewards may not be fair, I agree. A reduction of rewards for reposting could be introduced. But zeroing them is excessive, IMO. I...

I agree. Plagiarists won't use canonical links period, so the platform is just shooing away quality content. I'd prefer content that is already released in other platforms over the instagram feed I see now, artificially inflated by the voting circles.

Some plagiarists are using canonical links. I've seen it. However, the percentage of plagiarists using canonical links to real quality content producers using them is probably quite low. I think metrics would show that. And I believe they would also reveal that the percentage of plagiarists not using canonical links to those who are is probably high. So I see the point @Vico Biscotti is making. The unintended consequence is going to be less content from those who are producing quality...

@Vico Biscotti Agree there are other ways to fight plagiarism and we have several plans to do this - yes, improvements to reputation are one way. As @Garden Gnome Publications stated, plagiarists were using canonical links quite frequently. In fact, often times they are linking to the articles published on other platforms that they published on -- but those were stolen originally from somewhere else. A long web of plagiarism to decouple. My hope is that new writers will come - maybe post...

I'm with @Vico Biscotti - I was very upset with the new ruling to give no rewards to content posted elsewhere first. Plagiarists don't play by the rules to begin with, so they will simply not included the canonical link. I have a lot of MY OWN ORIGINAL WORK that I would like to share with Narrative that I posted elsewhere first. I have many good content posts (in my opinion) that I posted on both Steem and Medium that got almost no notice because I had no following at the time. And Steem...

I echo @Vico Biscotti and @blueeyes8960 as a content creator. I was never able to make monetization work on my blog, and one of the things that sold me on joining Narrative was that I could re-purpose my old posts - some of which require a lot of editing to update, others not so much. I get that you need a way to crack down on plagiarism and make it easier to penalize, and I even get that you may not want to reward republished content at the same rate as original content, but there should be...

Unfortunately this just further shows how little control we users have over content moderation and this particular decision took even more of that power from us... Narrative is still fully centralized and we are beholden to staff's structuring, which they can change at will. I wish that any reference to decentralization would be deleted from the documentation! @MOLLY O

@MOLLY O - I initially felt the policy shift was a good development, but I now believe we can't pivot away from it fast enough. The following platform post explains in detail how hoping quality content creators will crosspost here merely for exposure isn't realistic. https://www.narrative.org/post...-policy-gone-too-far Because the platform already is suffering from insufficient incentives for quality content, I don't think we can afford to wait and see if everything works out with this...

I initially was supportive of this policy, as well. After reading Cheah Kit Sun's well-written and well-thought out post on the topic, I'll have to agree that it's time to rethink this. Cheah is one of the most prodigious content posters in the Speculative Fiction niche. He is consistent, diligent, and disciplined, and his content rocks! Yes, it's previously published. But it rocks. I'd much rather see previously published content that rocks than original fluff that barely floats.

I came over here at @Garden Gnome Publications suggestion and I am completely in agreement with the sentiments expressed by @Vico Biscotti and @blueeyes8960 , as well as Cheah Kit Sun's cogent and arguments regarding rewards for republished content. I am aware that I'm repeating myself, but here goes, and this was my gut reaction before reading Cheah's post: I have had my own WP blog for quite a while and share that content across various platforms and social media - each of which has...

It was a good step to boost original contents on Narrative but also a big hurdle for many who are experienced bloggers and wanted to repost their evergreen contents on Narrative. Now we will miss that. I remembered when I had a chat with @Michael Farris about his #NRVEWorthy initiative. I can recall his words for approaching Medium writers with this, "Just repost and run, nothing to risk". I agree with @Vico Biscotti here, if not full then atleast 50 to 70% Rewards for reposting should be there.

@MOLLY O said: My hope is that new writers will come - maybe post some "older but still relevant" content with Canonical Links to get fresh eyes and perspective on their posts..and also contribute original content that they can earn rewards (if they want). We will keep watching and learning - and pivot when we need to. I also agree that this position needs to be thought out again. Pivoting is a fantastic idea here, and quickly. I am a new writer who came, recently, and provided some unique...

Thanks for mentioning my post! What really sticks in my craw is that Narrative isn't in any position to make demands of its users. It hasn't even left beta yet. It's not a major name in the content creation space the way Wordpress or Medium is, and even if it were, if it claims to be community-run, it must principally benefit the community. When comparing Narrative to other platforms, Narrative doesn't offer much. Yes, its crypto-based reward system and blockchain publishing platform is...

The claim about community run is a lie. @Ted himself has said that in the end, even after every feature is put in place, he has the last word. This deceiving claim by itself could tank the platform!
