I appreciate your concern Bitsurfer but from what I have seen its few and far between the smily faces and small comments (maybe they have already been deleted) but not a problem yet maybe in the future. but its nice to get new users even if its a smily face! on board at the moment the comments have been from the same users like you, me, Rush, Byan, Dias, Akshay.

So I just received my first Niche suggestion rejection . It was a great learning experience. There's just one problem: I can't suggest any more Niches for 7 days. Really? I'm not angry. I'm not upset. I'm a little disappointed. But I'm mostly befuzzled. This is Alpha stage, the stage where you want to prove yourself to potential users. Like a first date. You put on your lipstick and eye shadow, squirt a little sweet-smelling sneeze spray on the left and right sides of your neck, just under...

I hadn't heard about Sapien, but this is quite the detailed and enlightening read! I pretty much agree with your analysis of taglines. As for my 2 cents, I believe the whole line "The Content Economy" gives the impression that Narrative is aimed towards investors hoping to gain money in some way or another. I think Narrative should be marketed foremost as a democratic content platform that spreads it's revenue among it's contributors and in that regard, the term "Economy" may easily imply...

Re: Improving Narrative messaging - we're being outdone by the competition

Malkazoid ·
I agree @Slaz - the Content Economy is an attractive phrase in certain contexts. But not for mass appeal. It is too abstract, and doesn't make the content creator feel like it is immediately relevant to them. To us who understand the concept already, we get it that it means content creators will be part of an economy that they will benefit from. But for a newcomer, that phrase does not convey all that meaning at all. Instead, as you point out, it sounds like it is something for investors,...

All of this said, and messaging aside - from a aesthetic perspective, we're smoking Sapien. Their home page is not polished. Despite a slightly retro feel that may not appeal to everyone, the Narrative homepage has a distinctive style and speaks of attention to detail.

Re: Improving Narrative messaging - we're being outdone by the competition

Slaz ·
Agreed. While a bit abstract looking, Narrative's homepage layout feels unique and is easily distinguishable. For example, just looking at Narrative's newsletter header without reading the title and context of the email, will easily tell you it's from Narrative. Sapien's homepage on the other hand just looks like a dozen other crypto-related sites that try to be modern. They're even including those swirling vector thingamajigs on a dark blue-ish background in their header. It just screams...

Re: Sub-Niches or No sub-Niches...what's the issue?

John Clare ·
I have a couple of competing thoughts. I think sub-niches can make things a bit easier to navigate and organizationally pleasing. However, I do not want "sub" niche owners to have to fork over reward to the "main" niche owners. A couple of reasons that come to my mind is: 1) I think it would be unfair and unneeded for the vegan cooking niche to give some of their rewards to the food niche. The subniche is curating content for a specific audience that wouldn't fit neatly into the food niche.

A connected topic or "sub-niche" should not have to kick-back anything. I see it just as a way of mapping and discussing topics that nestle into each other. ownership is ownership...I have not ever used the word sub-niche with the intention to it being like a pyramid scheme. Yuck!

chrisabdey ·
I think that being able to submit up to 3 "niches" is good enough, assuming they exist. I think the main reason there are not "sub niches" is while they are related, it would eventually turn into a logistical nightmare to manage them all. The "Kickback" thought is a valid one, and no, it shouldn't kick-back earnings to the "top dog" or you'd have niches like "games" getting kickbacks from everything from video-games to table-games to political-games. Making each "sub-niche" it's own niche is...

Re: Does a Tribunal overruling on a Niche impact reputation?

Hi @Dana , Excellent question. What is in your best interest is to vote against the redundant niche, AND to appeal the community voted decision if the niche is approved by the community. Make a little note somewhere to make the appeal. In this manner, you vote according to your true belief rather than pursuing the sometimes misguided wisdom of the crowd, AND you do the network a service by making sure the problem of the approved redundant niche makes it before the Tribunal, while putting all...

Re: Does a Tribunal overruling on a Niche impact reputation?

The quick reply is that we are still tweaking the reputation formulas and spec, so there is no definite answer on this question. Further, it's doubtful that we will publish every nuance of how reputation is determined, because doing so would lead to more gaming. The longer answer is that the example you gave is a great example of how complex some issues are. Ultimately, our goal is to have a reputation system that reflects final truth (i.e., Tribunal opinions should influence reputation) AND...

Hmm, good question. I'm noticing the same thing. Someone created a Niche called "Daily Fantasy Sports" but in the subheading stated that "this also includes e-sports," which I know to be completely wrong, and the appeal failed. (My brother is a HUGE Esports & Fantasy league guy, and I can assure you, they're not the same thing) It's as if people are creating niche titles, but then trying to 'dragnet' other subjects in the Niche subheading, even if unintentionally, because they're unaware...

@Ted Are the Tribunal details on how they came to the decision made open and transparent to the community, or is it "top-down"? As mentioned in the Narrative Manifesto: "We adopt a decentralized approach; to replace top-down management of users and content with a system where the entire community is involved in setting standards, curating content, and reducing the influence of bad actors." To avoid acting as "Big Social" I think Tribunals will have to be naturally open processes to allow the...

The main issue we are finding with Niche creation is the duplication hazard...all of the other standard rejection reasons are pretty obvious. I know the Narrative team has tried to do a simple name match to show potential dupes...but this clearly isn't enough. The example above is the reason why: Homeopathic Treatment isn't showing 'Homeopathy' under similar Niches. I think most people are using this as a guideline while voting, or will simply rely on the legwork of another narrator who has...

Hi Molly - I'm catching on to this late - but am really happy to see this. It goes a long way towards feeling forwards motion and keeping us engaged. I think it also holds value in allowing the general aesthetic of Narrative to mature through these early iterations. Case in point - I put up a thread for design observations , and it is this refresh that inspired that. Hopefully this will yield some insights for the @Narrative Network Team over the coming weeks.

I've started a folder containing Word documents of what I plan to publish on Day One. One source I've found really helpful for things that can easily be edited for Narrative is social media, specifically things I've posted on Facebook.

The drawback is that Facebook's post history is really lacking, and it can take a lot of time to search for old posts worth revamping while waiting...

Great topic @Malkazoid ! The thing that I have always admired most about social media is how it has opened the flood gates for people to explore their creative side.

The fact that social media has given way for people to have a platform to explore, photography, writing, drawing, and film-making either amateur or professionally is remarkable.
