With only 18 days until Beta being launched, it is a good time to remind people to follow niches if you haven't already started too. Not just so you have more tailored content, but also to point out that once our moderator elections will be held hopefully soon after the launch. As I understand the rules, only people whom are actually following the niche will vote for the moderators, not everyone on the platform. I see this similar to a municipal representative, or state election, where only those affected, within the geographical area, have a vote in that election.
I think this is a terrific implementation on Narrative's part. So it is a good idea to make sure you are clicking the follow button on the niches that you're interested in consuming content from, when it all goes live.
