Search Results issue.

Service: Narrative

Issues with accent mark forcing different search results. Currently a niche I’m currently bidding on to own does not appear in results without using the accent mark. The Niche Pokémon does not appear unless you type in exactly that. If for example you type in Pokemon instead, the results change. This will not only making building out community’s with there proper name difficult but may allow niches to use the accents to create duplicate niches.

If you win the niche, you can change it through the tribunal to just be Pokemon...chances are most people will default to typing it without the accent é anyways since many people don't know how to type it this way. Not a perfect solution but one that will get you across the finish line, if they cannot make changes quick enough.

Yeah that was my plan aswell to expidite my niches issue, however I still believe it’s something that should also be fixed for other people’s niches aswell. I’m looking so forward to the potential of this platform even if I’m a late comer and I want the best experience for everyone not just the niches I plan to own. I just happened to notice the issue due to me bidding on Pokémon but I’m betting other niches might also end up having this issue

Latecomer?? Ha you are pre-beta that makes you early! The apostrophe issue was brought up before...it may just be fixed in the next roll out. Hard to say how much time they have had for the little details. But you are amongst good company for wanting to fix the platform for all. Glad to have you here @ZeroDesigns.

I have to admit...I have never played pokémon. My adult son loved it, though.

I also noticed the issue with accents in niche search results a long while ago, and posted about it on the old forums.

I suggested the Pokémon niche with that accent, because that's the canonical spelling of that franchises name. And although it's perfectly fine to change the niche name to "Pokemon", I'd rather see the the Narrative team fix the underlying problem with accents in search results.

It'd be better to get the root problem fixed instead of its symptoms, and by that I mean going after accents in every niche that has them. The search feature should just interpret "é" as "e" and vice versa.

Well I won the niche a few minutes ago, and brought up the change to the tribunal, I agree @Slaz I also would like to see the fix it overall instead of a bandaid however outside of some autocorrects or descriptions on Pokémon (Pokémon website oddly comes up as pokemon.com) the apostrophe will do more harm then good under the current system.

I agree. After all, content needs exposure and it'd be a shame if people can't find it because of a single character.

And good job winning it, I'll gladly nominate myself as a mod. I've been hoping of someone owning that niche before beta launch!
