The Niche process.

Harj ·
Firstly all Niches that are approved should make a postive contribution to the platform and Ted has created a fair process to achieve this and its start with your idea! Then you can input it into the approval process, you would in a effect suggest or nominate a new Niche into the system. Then a 48 hr process will start where each community member who has a positive Reputation will get the chance to vote on that niche those with higher rep will have more impact but (for the Alpha I think this...

Chaucer: Niche suggestions would benefit from having tags (being categorized)

[email protected] ·
Hello I Just browsed through the "Ballot box" and can´t help to wounder, that when more "niches" is being suggested, and the approved ones disappears from the "Ballot box" how will the community know if a proposed niche is overlapping another niche? I would suggest that niches must contain at least three tags, which describes the topic (niche). The tags could be created together with the community. An example: the niche "New York Jets" could have the following tags applied: "Sport",...

Yes, we definitely surfaced that as a potential challenge. Some indicator in that interface that will help the voter see potential duplicates would be helpful. Not sure if that turns into tags, or just some way to see names of similar Niches...

The suggested Niché Relationship vs. Dating

Emily Barnett ·
Hi Narrative Peeps! Just wanted to put a support post up for @Zach Relationship niche. Currently it is at only 50%. I don't see this as redundant to dating. The two are very different. A marriage or common-law relationship is vastly different, with it's own set of topics and sub-genres, than a dating relationship, and therefore I am asking people to reconsider their negative vote. In the end don't we want people to get the niche's that they feel they can contribute to the best, as long as it...

I agree - it is definitely a different niche. Folks had no difficulty differentiating between Car, Motorcycle and Auto & moto: three different niches. But dating vs relationships? Not so easy... Society's to blame!

I think you have a solid point Emily. I would consider these two different niches myself. Not to mention Relationship could mean more than one kind of relationship.

I think it could also be valuable to have a category of niches that get approved by the community but then unbid on. because it was approved it should not have to go through the approval process again which may get flagged as a duplicate. This category could be a pre-approved niches area. Just because someone changes there mind on a suggested niche doesn't mean that someone new to the platform won't want to purchase it. Even just in the patron level I see niches that have no bids on...

well the bidding time is only 48 hours. yes you could be right maybe the 48 hours starts from the time of the first bid. But why would you suggest a niche and then not bid on it. seems like a waste of the community's time.

Re: Chaucer: Niche suggestions would benefit from having tags (being categorized)

Malkazoid ·
Agreed. They might be dummy niches that they are in fact not interested in? A fear of their niche being bought up by someone with more means than them could lead them to hold on to the important niches until people have spent their budgets on the first and second rounds. Then the coast is clear for them to have a fighting chance to get the niches they really want?

Hello @Rosemary , I wanted to ask you if the tags or any other niche classification is already in the process? I understand it is probably not easy to implement it in such a short period but it is getting harder to keep all the topics in the head when I compare them and look out for similarities. Thanks a lot !

There is a lot going on behind the scenes, yes! For now, one thing you can do (although it will be tedious) is to use the little search box (the magnifying glass icon in the toolbar) to check the Niche name against existing Niches if you think it might be a duplicate. Thanks for being an active participant!

Re: Niche suggestions - Improvements to the Ballot box

JR ·
I agree with having the ability to edit a proposal, but I don't think you should be allowed to retract it, because it is necessary for bad suggestions such as duplicates and those that violate policy to end up rejected so that in the future they can not be proposed again. Otherwise we will constantly have to revisit failed ideas over and over as those proposing them retract their suggestions.

Good suggestions! I think this will save a lot of precious time for everyone. Retracting a suggestion sounds also good, with a score below 60% it's clearly a signal of little confident. I see little comments though what could be improved to stem the tide.

Niche suggestions - Improvements to the Ballot box

[email protected] ·
Hello all I have been thinking on ways to improve the voting process regarding Niches. Currently the feedback (comments) received during the 48 hours voting process, can´t be implemented to the Niche. And there is a 7 days penalty involved if your Niche is not approved. Therefor I have a few suggestions to improve the Niche suggestion and voting process. Between the first 12 hours and 24 hours that a Niche is active in the Ballot Box, Niches receiving less then (an example: 60% YES votes)...

I think making edits to the Niche should have a couple effects: Restarts the Niche's voting timer/clock. Resets existing votes for the Niche (notifying previous voters that it has been updated—with clear explanation of what has been changed—and that the voters will need to resubmit a vote).

Re: Niche suggestions - Improvements to the Ballot box

Brian Lenz ·
@Bryan , niche edits can’t be made until after a niche has been approved (by vote) and subsequently purchased. Then, the new owner can make edits. Edits are going to be voted on by the Tribunal instead of the community in order to ensure the edits are not materially significant, which should eliminate the potential scenarios where someone buys an obscure niche and tries to repurpose it later to something completely different.

Hey Founders...where did you all go?

Hi Founders, Congratulations on your Niches. I am excited to be a reader, contributor, and hopefully a moderator for some of these terrific Niches that are now in existence. I have noticed that many of the founders have seemly left the building when it comes to voting on the Niches suggested by the patrons . I would encourage you to participate in this round of voting, even though you have your niches, for the following reasons: 1. Most of you have been here from the beginning, and are a lot...

Niche validation voting, and reputation

Hello @Narrative Network Team Voting for the niches is becoming quite time consuming especially if we want to leave informative comments for any downvotes, or a controversial upvote. And yet the community must do this in order for the platform to work. 1) This may already be the case, but in case it isn't, I propose that the voting activity from the outset of the Chaucer Alpha be taken into account in the initial reputation scoring when the platform launches. This way the people putting...

I agree with a lot of what you are saying @Malkazoid , if I down vote a niche, I certainly want to give the creator a reason why which of course takes time. I also worry that when the volume of niche's increases I may simply miss a good niche and not give a vote to it. I think the idea of rewarding those taking the time to vote and thus putting the effort in is a good one. I also think having a scoring system also is good although I'm not sure of penalising those users that vote against the...

Thank you for posting this @Malkazoid I intended to post a similar post, but wanted to wait until my niche selection was done. I think the time invested for voting must be counted towards ones community reputation. If you spend time pitching in to build all the houses in a community, you should get recognition for doing so. Following the same analogy...if you show up to build those houses and you don't know what you are doing, or worse yet have malicious intent, which results in making other...

Well thank you @Emad this middle-aged lady will happily accept your compliments. And thank you to everyone for hearing my call, and jumping right in, and to those that have been sticking with it all along...I love how invested people are in the success of this thing. It just demonstrates how powerful decentralization truly is.

Yes, it is definitely one of the key topics in today society. And many people will surely follow it, including myself, I am glad you suggested it. On another note, it is really great to go through the ballot box every time and see all the new interesting topics appear there. There are of course some repetitive topics but there are also many inspiring ideas and it's just encouraging to watch the diversity. So agreeing with @MichelleG , thanks Emily for being active!

Another idea I had for speeding up the voting process when you wanted to leave a comment perhaps would be have a multiple choice of boiler plate reason why you up\down vote (duplicate, not inappropriate etc.) or more vote button rather than Yes/No, e.g. No Duplicate, No Inappropriate etc.

Texas niche, description

Hello all, I found myself having to downvote the Texas niche, even though I really wanted to upvote it. It makes specific mention of crypto discussions in its description, and I see this as very detrimental to Narrative because it leaves users with the distinct impression that the platform is crypto focused. A niche about a state or a country should be about that state or country and everything pertaining to it. A specific mention of crypto means Narrative aims to discuss everything in...

Great post @Malkazoid I completely agree, I have also been put off by some of the descriptions which is a real shame as most of the time I really like the niche. Maybe we need the facility to offer suggestions to improve the description. There may be occasions where people are able to articulate the description, as a community it would be fantastic if we were able to support each other

I did appeal it to the tribunal that the crypto frontier should be removed, but that the niche should remain otherwise. I think it would be nice if someone else could do the same so I am not alone in my suggestion of a correction.
