I want to take some time this morning to review a couple things with the community. We are early in the Beta and there is always room for improvement but we want to make decisions based on what is best for future features we are building while balancing growth.
AUP Violations: There were tons of posts reported by a few community members for AUP violations that occurred over the past 24 hours and continue today. No member of the Tribunal believes these music related posts are AUP violations. A couple reasons - these posts are not generated by bots and they are also not spam. The musicians post comments, participate in the platform, and engage with other members. Please stop reporting these posts as AUP violations.
In the future, unless something is very apparent, it may be best that you report a few to see if the Tribunal acts on them. This allows all of us to focus on more constructive things.
Narrative Platform Posts and Comments: While passion is good - these long diatribe-like comments with negative tone do nothing to help the platform. Think about the new Narrative members coming to the site and this is what they see. It is incredibly off-putting to new users. Posts about other Narrators only incite the passionate comments.
We are all trying to build this together. Nothing is perfect and we have work ahead, but let's respect each other, be inviting and inclusive…both on Narrative and in this community.
