Deleting Posts

Bitsurfer7 ·
Hy members, i think it‘s a shame that people could get community reward points for posting useless things in the forum like a smiley or something else. We should enable a admin only for proofing posts. So that it is impossible to get points for doing nothing. We should act asap. Sincerly, bitsurfer

Naturally the efforts of members to grow Narrative's user base at launch time, will be crucial.

Ad Revenue and Content Item Score

MichelleG ·
So, this is a post where I'm trying to get clear in my head the relationship between ad revenue and what the narrative organization, content creators, owners and moderators etc. will actually get paid. The owners and moderators payout is parasitic on the content creators' so we can just look at that. I'm new to all this so if somebody could correct any egregious errors, please please do so. In advance , the TL;DR for this post is as follows: How the reputation system works is going to...

Narrative support niche vs Narrative 411 niche

Malkazoid ·
Hello... So the fine tuning saga of niche creation and appeals continues. JR brought this to my attention - the same user that proposed the Video Games niche, despite there already being a Gaming niche, has proposed a Narrative 411 niche, despite there being a Narrative Support niche already. In both cases, the questionable new niches were approved by the community. Both new niches now have appeals against them. For the Gaming vs Video Games, the case is pretty clear cut. Almost nobody...

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...

Now that we can type our content into the platform, we can get a bit more of a peek into the elegant look of the site, but also start to see the User experience design. This thread is not a complaint thread, but rather a constructive place to put your ideas in one area, of features you would like to see once the team rolls out the beta, and the designers have time for fine tuning I will start.

Steemit Vs Narrative rewards - user privacy and security

I'm starting this thread because @David Dreezer locked the previous one in which this was being discussed. I don't believe he did so to censor this aspect of the conversation, so here we are in a new thread. @Emily Barnett - the other thread was locked while I was in mid answer to your question about whether Steemit had ever experienced hacking of people's accounts based on their earnings, or instances of violence to obtain their wallet keys.

Unowned niches need to be active

Malkazoid ·
This seems to be the most pressing topic right now, so a good first 'Conversation' for the new version of the community forums. In an effort to see just how many people will come up against the jarring realisation that the tag they want can only be unlocked if someone spends $75, I tested the assertion made by the @Narrative Network Team that most topics are covered by owned niches. So I took some common areas of interest and searched for niches for them. Politics There are a few...
Question

What Initiative We create To Attract And Guide New Users In Our Platform

MALAY BANERJEE ·
Its great that Narrative Beta will go live on 03 th April . I want to ask our community members and administration that is there any special steps or initiative narrative taken to monitize new user's creative contents as a special gift to attract new user in our beloved narrative platform. I think narrative should give some special gift to early creator. Narrative should creates new attractive agenda for benefiting every new creators initially to attract new user's in narrative platform .

Allow user to define what portion of their image displays in the preview

...or fit the image horizontally, so that wide aspect images display in their entirety. Doing either of these two things might be one of the lowest hanging fruits for improving the look of all Narrative content listings. Right now, most of the images in the content listings are unappealing because the brain can't easily grasp what is being looked at. Images are a double-edged sword because we are such visual creatures, they draw the eye first. If the result of that first engagement is ...

Why are user-written content not indexed on google or other search engines?

Dotman ·
Hi guys! writing "narratives" or "NRVE" or "NRVE narrative" on google, I don't get any feedback on narratives. I consider the indexing of contents to be important to give visibility to the platform and its publishers. What do you think about it? Thank's for answers, Dotman =)

hello narrative community! I thought it would be useful to have the functionality of automatic suggestions. for example: when I insert a comment and I want to tag some users, putting the snail and starting to write a letter, it doesn't even suggest me some user who wrote the post or commented previously or in any case another narrative user. what do you think?

The need for other modes of verification

Presently, Narrative requires a user pays $15 for the verification process to commence so that such a member can be certified. The only mode of achieving this is payment with PayPal.

I'm promoting Narrative on Twitter and Linkedin. Unfortunately, since 99% of my friends on Facebook have no crypto interest/knowledge, it's harder to promote it there. It will be much easier if I on-board them by sharing my sex stories exclusively in Narrative before hitting my blog. I have a lot of traction with my dirty existential writing among my networks

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Yes, great stuff indeed. But, jokes aside, I think exclusive, quality content, is the key to make Narrative hit the ground running. Medium has done it, to great success. Whereas Steemit has failed to accomplish that, plagued with multiple copy/pasted duplicated content and low quality, mindless chatter. Let's be Medium, but better. And free.

Method: Kicking the Facebook habit Category : broad on-boarding strategies I don't think it will be difficult for Facebook users to become curious about Narrative - there's a lot to be curious about, perhaps most prominently: - owning your content - getting paid for your content These are very simple notions that can be communicated quickly and effectively. It is once that curiosity is there that the obstacles come up. To name the biggest I can think of: - inertia ("all my stuff is on...

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

I think the whole argument of "owning my content" and "being paid for my content" are great selling points, specially if we bash Facebook for their inmoral data exposure and trading practices. Though, my main concern -and one of Narrative's biggest challenges- is, hands down, filling the gap between crypto and fiat. We need to offer our users a fiat gateway, for probably at least 50% have no idea what crypto is, nor they will see the use to it. So saying "we'll give you XXX tokens" will...

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Malkazoid ·
Agreed, and I think Narrative will probably quote in fiat whenever appropriate, perhaps similarly to the way Steemit does... or perhaps differently. There is a discussion to be had about obscuring NRVE too much though. It all depends on what the goal is for the currency. If the idea is that we will design incentives to hold NRVE because it benefits the community in major ways for it to appreciate, then NRVE can't be hidden away like an embarrassing cousin who drools and gropes his relatives.

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Eduardo Hernández ·
I'm on board with that. It's not my intention to obscure our token in any way, but I think we have to educate our users about crypto through the token. But, as I said, the token in itself might not be important, in the beginning, to the average content generator. Also, I'd hate Narrative to become just another Cryptocurrency subreddit. Crypto should be just another niche, and never the main focus. That's the only way to thrive and survive in this competitive medium (see what I did there? )

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Hehe, I do indeed see what you are doing there... Yes, I'm glad you're mindful of the Crypto focus that many early adopters inevitably have. From what I can see, there will be a fairly broad array of interests represented in the first niches, and then it will be up to the niche owners and their early adopters to create an attractive space and content that embodies their niche successfully. Crypto may be somewhat overrepresented initially, but as long as the platform is well designed, this...

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Same here. I think the true value of Narrative lies in quality content and democratic participation of authors of all walks of life, with their own points of view and beliefs. Crypto is fascinating, but we shouldn't narrow down our focus an be secluded in such a small niche.

Wow there is alot of content in this thread. All great ideas. I for one will use my social media platforms to get the word out as most of you have stated. I plan on using both business and personal venues. Realistically, I have very few business associates and family that are Crypto Enthusiasts other than my boys. So I will be just talking about how the content within Narrative will drive the success. And the compensation for good content will be in the form of tokens that you can exchange...

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

As @CryptoPhil points out, there is still a big lack of knowledge of crypto, from what it is to what you can do with it. It'd be nice if the platform offers a real world case for the use of the token (ex. buying Narrative merch with NRVE,) and also if it displays the token balances in your account with their fiat value, so less crypto savvy people still gets an idea of what their tokens are worth (which is what steemit is doing.)

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.

Oh, now I'm trying to remember the THING that was missing when I was working on some drafts last week... and I can't remember it. This is may or may not be it, but one thing that's really needed is when choosing three niches for our content, we need search to look at niche names and descriptions.

This is awesome, and helpful (especially since some of the suggestions get buried inside long, intense discussions and are hard to surface).

Then choose "support topic." On that page, for topic type,...

How about a niche suggestion tool? Just look at the content I wrote in the box and tell me which niches fit. Also, why only three niches? One of my frustrations with Steemit is I can only have five tags for a post. Why? If my content matches fifteen different content categories, why can't I tag it for all fifteen categories? I tend to write long posts so five tags doesn't cut it. On Narrative, a post may only fit into one niche. Fine. But what if it fits into six or seven? What harm would it...

@Garden Gnome Publications I think that the three niche limit might have something to do with rewards, not necessarily for the content creator, but for the moderators and niche owners. At least, that's the most likely explanation my brain could conjure. Publishing content in too many niches would dilute the rewards for each niche the same content appears in. If it was just about tagging, I would agree that there would be no good reason to limit how tags to just three. But because of the...

That makes sense. I wonder if the end user who is not a niche owner or moderator will understand that. That's the kind of thing that needs to be communicated at the user level. Knowing that, as a user, I can choose the owners and moderators I want to reward.

Yeah, the thought literally had never occurred to me until you asked the question, and then I realized what a responsibility it is as a content creator - and as an owner and moderator - to build relationships to foster mutual success.

I think it could be argued that as a user experience, having too many tags means the same content can just end up getting plastered everywhere, and the platform could look quite repetitive. Especially in the early days.

Yeah, then you run the risk of creating user silos where early adopters support other early adopters and leave the rest behind. We certainly wouldn't want to create an aristocratic echo chamber. I don't think it would serve the platform well. @Emily Barnett , that's a good point. I think it could end up looking like a content farm, especially early on, if we're not careful.

Re: A long list of Features that we would love to see in the future.

@Garden Gnome Publications It's human nature. But I don't think the risk of an echo chamber is really that high. We all have a fixed limit on the number of niches we can own, and most of the time, we're probably not going to have the luxury of "knowing" the relevant niche owners, even one out of three.

With regard to photos, I'd like to be able to right and justify them. Also, the ability to include tables would be nice. And a place to include a footer so that all personal journal entries can have the same footer material without having to copy/paste it every time. In fact, being able to store multiple footers (one for each different type of post, for instance) would be nice.

This is a great suggestion. Some niche owners may not want duplicate content even if the content creator owns that content. This would give them the ability to check it quickly and reject content that doesn't meet Niche guidelines.
