Brand owner vs Niche owner

mrgoodsett ·
One year after launch, Narrative is a big success. Many business brands want to do business with Narrative. The New York Yankees want to set up a brand, however, there is a niche named New York Yankees, could the brand and niche exist together? or would the Yanks be out of luck(hopefully-go Dodgers)?

Just Curious. Are we just Niche Owners here, Or Moderators & Content Makers too

Emily Barnett ·
No that we are starting to get a real view of the many different topics coming to light, I am curious if everyone in the community now, is just focused on being a Niche holder, or are there some future Moderators in the house as well? Or maybe some people just plan to focus on being a Content Maker? Is there anyone intending to be all three? Let me know...I am interested.

Will the Moderator section go live before Q4

Emily Barnett ·
Since lining up moderators is an important aspect of having a functioning release of Narrative in the Q4, I am wondering how soon there will be the previously discussed area where people can express their intentions to moderate and for what topics they are knowledgeable in. As well as Niche owners to post what they are looking for? I recognize that many Niche owners may be looking for moderators outside the platform, but the perfect person may already be here...with out this part of the...

Deleting unwanted niches ?

ScottB ·
With the 5 niche limit, I'd like to suggest the ability for owners to drop unwanted niches before the platform opens for content to be posted. One reason is because I think there has been some confusion about how wide-ranging or focused the 'niches' can be, and some members may prefer to propose and bid for a new, more specific niche, rather than own a more general topic which they assumed would cover their interests. Changing the niche title and description might not be possible in such...

Social Media support for Niches

WesODonnell ·
Hi all! Love the idea of this platform. Super excited. For Niche Owners: I'm curious what other niche owners' plans are for driving traffic to our high-quality content in our niches? Historically, for traditional sites, I have built up a large social media following, kept engagement high, and when the time came to drop an article link, usually had great CTR. I can easily imagine a world where every niche on Narrative has its own Facebook business page (or group), or Instagram presence.

On what grounds could an Owner lose ownership?

Dana ·
I'm curious how the Team envisages an Owner might lose ownership of a Niche (aside from not making a renewal payment or selling it). The White Paper states: It's unclear to me on what grounds The Tribunal might agree with the Niche patrons. Could it be a matter of an Owner's unbecoming behavior toward the community? Or the Owner isn't putting in enough effort to support the Niche? Or-- and excuse the silly example, but it can be extrapolated-- let's say I am the owner of the Cats Niche but...

Niches Looking for Owners

Christina Gleason ·
My finances are limited right now, so I can't even bid on the maximum of 5 niches I'm allowed to own. (I own one so far.) There are so many niches I would LOVE to contribute to...but they have no owners. Let's use this thread to list and link to niches in need of owners that WE would personally contribute to and/or actively read content in. That way, investment-minded owners have sort of a one-stop shop for niches that have potential from active narrators right from the very start. I'll put...

But is Really Redundant?

Emily Barnett ·
So I was just about to vote on Voiceover and started to read the debating comments about the differences and overlaps to Voice Acting. Vote Acting is not purchased. This of course brings up a nagging question I keep posing to myself...If no one has purchased the niche is it actually redundant? I mean if it is sitting in the narrative abyss with no owner, and no moderator candidates, than why is this truly considered redundant. There are multiple niches up for election right now, being...

Swimming in Rewards pool. Complications?

Drixx Madison ·
We've touched on the Rewards pool breakdown before and it's pretty straight forward. Niche Owners: 10% Niche Moderators: 6% Content Creators: 60% But what about overlap? I've been searching the forum and Medium posts but haven't seen anything definitive on how or if the Rewards pool gets broken down in different scenarios. Can a niche owner post in a niche they own? Would they be entitled to a portion of both Niche Owner and Content Creator rewards pools (70%), or would this be reduced? Can...

Question TWO: Moderator centre: When Elections?

Thought I would separate these so they would not get convoluted. So my understanding is that we, as the Alpha group, will be publishing content as a pre-seeding prior to the April 2, public launching of the beta. This turns my attention to the Moderator Center and how is this going to be rolled out. 1. Will we be holding the moderator elections before hand, so that our Niches and content actually qualify to accrue rewards from our votes from the first publish day? 2. Will we be able to...

Low quality content

Debbie Meier ·
This might sound like a basic question, but here it is: Until moderators are elected, what should niche owners do with content they consider to be of low quality, even if the topic of the article is relevant to the niche? Should they: - allow the general audience to vote the article up/down or do so on their own? - as it isn't possible to DM, should the niche owner provide a detailed comment about what they think should be improved? - delete the article? Also, as a side note, I am busy...

What can we do with inactive owners?

Vico Biscotti ·
A few days ago I published an article on a niche where the last time the owner logged in was 5 months ago. Inactive owners are likely to do nothing of what an owner is expected to be willing to do. And the same is true for members active on Narrative but doing nothing as owners. Since niches can't have duplicates, if the niche is an important niche for you, you're stuck with a forgotten niche. Inactive owners are not infrequent. What can we do to get unstuck? I guess that an inactive owner...

Writing Niches Owners and Moderators

Shaine ·
The Writing niche is very general based on how writers will tend to use Niches as blog post tags. However, writers may be better served by more specific niches. Thus, it is important to make writers aware of the other writing niches. @Wild Speculation et al This is an attempt at a back channel where we can coordinate to ensure we all agree on content moderation and promotion of writing niches so that writers are able to find the right community to showcase their work.

Also a question that raised my mind Today after winning the first ever niche. Think mostly founders will be interested in owning a niche they also want to write content about. At least that's what I'll be doing. For now I'm writing up my plan for the foundation of the niche that I want to present to moderators who want to join me on this journey. Because moderators will have a huge stake in the niche, I find it important for them to have a say as well.

RSQRD, I like that idea of writing up a plan for the moderators. I think I will do the same We obviously want our niches to have good content, and also as the owners, for our niche's to be able to represent our vision. I will be interested to see how the moderator selection will unfold. I will want to be able to get to know my moderators before I "hire" them (if that is the right word?) as to get the best minds for the niche.

Like @Malkazoid I am interested in all three levels too. I guess it comes down to how much time I plan to dedicate. I may go slower into the niche owning side of it...not sure yet, like only buying 3 to begin with to make sure I can do a really good job. I don't know yet. But I am interested in moderating too. Heck every part of this is fascinating...even sitting as a tribunal has its interesting merits.

Excellent idea @Rsqrd ! I haven't even begun the suggested niche part because i am a patron not a founder, but I have a list of titles for articles I plan to write.

Re: On what grounds could an Owner lose ownership?

chrisabdey ·
I would think it would need to involve something that violates the terms of service or abuse of power. Example: One huge problem Steemit has is "flame wars" and "flagging wars" wherein people downvote or set bots to downvote content just for the sake of downvoting. Because they don't like the person, or don't agree with the person they intentionally sabotage the content. So, in the case where a moderator is simply weeding out content because of that they would petition the niche owner to get...

Re: On what grounds could an Owner lose ownership?

Hi @Dana - there is an intentional separation of powers between niche owners and niche moderators. As such, niche owners have no impact on the content in a niche- they are not permitted to have content management powers in their niches. This is why we have a completely separate role for moderators, who are always elected (and thus held accountable) by the community. For this reason, niche owners can only lose their niches if they fail to pay the renewal fees. There is no mechanism for the...

Hello Ted, The problems with this approach remain unaddressed. What's more, there is a very straight forward fix to the risks of owners having influence over content management. The Fix You mention that all moderator activity is transparent, so we should not fear moderator abuse: the community can take note of it and vote a moderator out. By the exact same token, if an owner had some degree of influence on content management, their actions could be completely transparent also, and there is...

I think @Malkazoid 's explanation here is detailed enough (and entirely accurate imo), that I'm not going to duplicate that here. What I have been thinking about is the bigger picture on this. Essentially, what we are discussing here is a system of checks and balances. I see similiar themes developing across various discussions (not least my thread on a withdrawal function for niche suggestions). That's to be expected as what you are trying to create here is essentially a democracy of sorts.

Re: On what grounds could an Owner lose ownership?

Hi @Malkazoid - Nice owners can certainly attract content creators to their niches. They simply shouldn't be self-appointed moderators in them. If you want complete control over your realm, then a publication is the way to go. With a publication, you have complete control over your area and can even moderate/edit it yourself, if you like. That is actually one of the main reasons why we will support publications. The niche owner will have some powers within the niche, but moderating content...

Re: On what grounds could an Owner lose ownership?

Then why are you putting them up for sale? With respect, you have a fundamental contradiction here imo. Either they are public resources, in which case they should be either owned by narrative, or preferably by the community itself. OR they are privately owned resources, available either wholly or partly for public consumption. I see where you're trying to go with publications, and complete editorial control. But if that's the case, there's naff all incentive for anyone to own a niche, when...

Thanks for this clarification. Until only a few weeks ago, and for several months after niches were suggested and purchased, Publications were called Brand channels , and there was truly no clear definition of how niches would or would not be organisable.

I really do feel like there needs to be a hybrid model, because even with 'Publications - formerly brand channels', the model was that the owner didn't get any rewards, but had control, or if they did want rewards, they basically had to flow all content through themselves. I really do think the ownership model of Niches should include the ability to organize and feature content. This is why unfortunately the whole content piece of Narrative has been a black box to everyone and we have all of...

So here is the thing @Ted ...Narrative is starting to look very different than what the white papers stated, pre-ICO and post ICO, which seems very unethical.
