Dear @Narrative Network Team

I have a question regarding how activity is measured.

Since this measure is the foundation of the network rewards attributions, it would be great for us to look at it in a little bit of detail.

Right now, from what I have understood, this measurement is based purely in comments, and likes.

A) Do likes on comments constitute extra activity for the content, and niche?

B) Do views amount to anything, even if the view does not lead to a like?

B is of interest to me because a percentage of people will visit, read the content, but simply not take the time to respond to it.  This does not mean they did not like it, and we must also keep in mind that their presence on the page means they will have engaged to some degree with advertising on the page in the process.  So their mere presence does represent value to the network, with or without comments or likes.

If possible, I think it would be justified to include views in your measurement.  They probably should be weighted less than comments and likes in the equation, but omitting them would be disregarding relevant data?

It's a pretty simple activity algorithm suitable for building traffic and content.  Yes, likes and shares and similar social activities have an effect.  That's why we use it for this phase of the community rewards.  That's also why it doesn't even come close to how reputation will work in Narrative.

We don't publish the exact algorithm or the rolling point tally because of human nature    AKA gaming the system is hard to filter out from genuine contributions.

PS.  This forum software scoring system is "as is."  We won't/can't do much to change it because the effort is going into designing a Narrative reputation system.   We'll tweak the tools we have.

Hang tight.  We'll have more news this week on how Phase 2 of Community Rewards will work.  Short answer ="Somewhat Differently."

Hey @Michael Farris

I guess I should have been more specific.  I was referring to activity measurement on the launch platform of Narrative.  Hence the mention of advertising (of which there is none here), and of network rewards (as opposed to community rewards).

I'm very grateful for the community rewards, but that has never been a focus of my posting here: 99 percent of my interest and energy for these forums goes to contributing what I can to Narrative as a platform.  Here, I'm interested in how the platform will measure activity.
