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...

Hey Founders...where did you all go?

Emily Barnett ·
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...

Texas niche, description

Malkazoid ·
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...

Niche validation voting, and reputation

Malkazoid ·
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 give a simple example: NEO News Today Niche has 53.33% at the moment. Why does the community vote YES for it when already exist Neo niche? Are they just uninformed? What is the reason? Is it possible to add a search by Niches? This tool will do filtration for voters more easy. What do you think about it?

The Niche process.

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 digest

Malkazoid ·
Similar idea here, to the suggestion of a Community forum digest. Participation in the Chaucer Alpha is up of course, with the influx of new users. But aspects of it are not - voting to confirm niches is a bit on the anemic side for instance, and we have no current mechanism to fix that. If a weekly message went out to all users with a digest of some of the notable activity on Chaucer (interesting new niches proposed, niches that need more votes, etc), with a reminder that voting builds...

The Business of Blogging niche (please don't let it die!)

Christina Gleason ·
When I originally typed up the name and description of my suggested Business of Blogging niche , it was simply "The Business of Blogging" and a slightly different description. But as I was going over my old blog posts I'm trying to repurpose - including lots of conference session liveblogs with advice for bloggers - I realized that bloggers HAVE to branch out onto other platforms now. I have. So I added "and Digital Content Creation " to the name and switched up some words in the...

Best of Etsy niche - moderator vote to influence initial quality score

Malkazoid ·
Hello all, So back in the day when it was unclear how niches would work, we suggested and bought this niche. It was intended to be a curated collection of the quirkiest, coolest Etsy offerings. Without the ability to curate it in any way, it will probably just become a place that Etsy sellers will flood with any and all of their listings, which kills the entire intent of a 'Best of' niche. I'm here to find a solution to this. Ideally the moderators would be allowed to curate on this type of...

Venezuela Niche- your vote helps. (Narrative Philanthropy)

Emily Barnett ·
Hi all. I bought the niche Venezuela, because I think this is a really important niche for Venezuelans to be able to tag their content too, and given the dire economic situation there, I didn't think it was going to get purchased before beta, -- and because we were unsuccessful in getting un-purchased niches to accept tagged content. This thread is three-fold request: 1. My best hope is to find moderators whom are Venezuelan (living in the country), and fluent in English. If this is you or...

Niche suggestions were becoming stagnant, and it's really exciting to see new narrators getting right down to business! Here are a few quick tips for suggesting niches and voting to approve or reject them: Use the search function to make sure the niche you want to suggest doesn't already exist. Search for synonyms just to be safe so you're niche suggestion doesn't get rejected for being redundant. (Don't feel bad if this happens. There's a bit of a learning curve here.)

How do you standardize clarity?

I have been an active Narrative member since before Alpha launched. One of the most fascinating things about being one of the early adopters is getting to watch how the platform continuously change, as new crops of people affect the development of it. It is truly exciting! As of late though, I am noticing a voting tendency, that I would like to call attention too, because in my opinion could become quite problematic.

Does a Tribunal overruling on a Niche impact reputation?

Dana ·
In cases where the community votes incorrectly, it seems in my best interests to simply go with the flow and vote for 'the winning team' rather than vote correctly and take a reputation hit. I get the feeling that this 'gaming' the voting system is happening-- maybe not always maliciously, but to save time and boost rep. So my question using a real example: the Niche Homeopathic Treatment looks set to be accepted by the community at 12 (for)- 2 (against). Even if the remaining 8 votes go...

Current niche approvals that are problematic

We had a thread to alert the community to these before there was a move to this newer version of the support site, but I think all those threads are locked now, so here's a new one! Alert the community to the niches that may be receiving the wrong votes in the approval process. Avoiding the need to appeal an approval to the Tribunal lessens their workload and allows them to focus on their core task of developing the platform. This is all the more important now, because after Beta launch, a...

Reduce Voting Weight of Certification to 10% as per whitepaper

freedom ·
This proposal is to reduce the current impact of certification to 10 from 30. The highest rep achievable without certification is 39, and the voting weight that goes with it is 0.04. That means 5 members with the highest possible rep would outweigh 15 members with the highest possible rep without certification. Per @deniswallez With $15 and a positive conduct, you already have a reputation of 40 (hence above my 33), and therefore more voting power than me, even if you never took the time to...

Notifications on up votes.

Vico Biscotti ·
I often appreciate an article but don't have a meaningful comment to leave, or have no time for it. Still, I'd want the writer (or others) to know that I appreciated. Votes are now anonymous and I get that negative votes should remain so. But why not making up-votes public or at least notify the writer? A vote up is an engagement tool too, and the engagement opportunity is lost with the anonymous vote.

Disagree with viewpoint seems to count for rating

Vico Biscotti ·
I just downvoted a comment as "disagree with viewpoint". The comment had 1 vote and no rating. As soon as I voted, the comment went rating 100%, with two votes, as if the two votes were upvotes. But if downvoting for disagreement doesn't count for rating, I'd expect the rating to remain unspecified, because still only 1 vote which counts for rating is there. If rating was unspecified before my vote, it's reasonable to expect it to remain unspecified.

Alternative voting system

Vico Biscotti ·
Downvoting seems to be taken badly by too many people here. AND cheap content seems to be excessively rewarded. AND voting circles are there. Gradual upvotes - combined with a fixed "power" of each member and pattern detection - could solve much of this. Imagine giving a user a certain number of "points" per month. These points are proportional to reputation (amplifying high reps, and disempowering low reps). So, let's say that, with my rep, I have 100 points per month. Now, let's say that...

While niche approval needs community voting, the edit of the niche - even a major one - doesn't

When the community votes for a niche, discussion and voting is based on the name and the description of a niche. However, a following edit, after the niche is purchased, can significantly change the meaning of the niche, as it happend with Creativity .

I think that a major edit should undergo a discussion similar to the one on the approval phase, even if the niche has an owner. The community...

Unclear labels for Tribunal votes

Vico Biscotti ·
Votes from Tribunal members, in the appeal, are labeled "Voted for" or "Voted against", but it's unclear if it's a "voted for rejecting the niche" (as it's intuitive, because they're voting the appeal) or "voted for keeping the niche" (as it actually is). I think "Voting for the appeal" and "Voted against the appeal" (switching columns, in this case) would be clearer captions.

Ratings on posts.

VC Nickels ·
Can someone explain this to me because there is obviously not simple math going on. I have a post, it has two votes. Since the options are either Up or Down I *should* be at 100%, 50%, or 0%.

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.
