When the Chaucer alpha goes live, we'll be allowing the Founders (defined as anyone who contributed 60 or more NEO in the token sale) to have certain permissions. Founders will have a little "Founder" label next to their name in the interface.

The next group of people who will have permissions in Chaucer will be anyone who participated in the token sale (regardless of the amount of NEO they contributed). I'm asking for input from your illustrious minds...what label would you like to see next to their names?

The obvious is "Token Sale Participant" but that is very wordy.

The label "Investor" is not permitted.

What are your thoughts?

These are great so far!

@Bryan kinda surprised you didn't suggest "Clam Poet"

How about I've Got NRVE or True Believer or Patron?

I thought about Patron (but that's what Patreon supporters are called). 

The whole clam thing didn't even cross my mind, to be honest. But something hinting at clams or clams' nervous systems might be fun for kids these days. 

Axon Clam
Mollusktron (Mollusk + Electron)
Bivalvians
Pelecypod Vanguard

any of those will do just fine. Seriously though, I'd also vote for the acronym style: ITP (as mentioned above) or NP (Narrative Patron/Pioneer) or...

Newbie here. 
So, I'd like to put in that it must be a somewhat grandiose and cool name, with fun coming in just as a bonus. You know... something that makes it seem like only visionaries would have bought in early. Thus, I really like "Pioneer." Along those lines, some alternatives:

Framer - Dovetails nicely with the "founder" language 
Architect
Steward
Leader 




ON - For Original Narrator (liking the mouseover of initials idea from Mr Goodsett, for revealing full wording)

Primordial Soup (doesn't sound too flattering somehow though? &nbsp

Trilobite (from the Cambrian explosion, high brow indirect inference of what we all want Narrative to be - an eruption of diverse members that spans the globe)

------------------

Of the ideas already presented, my favourites are Patron, or True Believer.  I like these better than anything I've come up with as they are simple and direct, and to the point.  Doesn't bother me that Patreon already uses the term Patron.

 

Rosemary's "I've got Nerve" is growing on me...  I'd found that too when looking through an idiom dictionary entry for expressions containing "nerve", but dismissed it too quickly as sounding funny...  The more I read it, the less weird it sounds.  I'm starting to like it!

Maybe "Got NRVE" is even more to the point?

As a pretentiously self-appointed devil's advocate:
the reason I don't like some of these suggestions is because they* are compound words/phrases and/or they aren't really read as labels/titles. Got NRVE really channels the "Got Milk" campaign in the USA, and is pretty campy—along the lines of Wendy's famous "Where's The Beef?".

I'd prefer any labels attached to my account name/profile to be a single, strong word—like Founder—which doesn't depend on specialized, internal context, but can be universally understood.

*Got NRVE, True Believer, or even my own suggestion Pelecypod Vanguard 

Co Founder ?? Individuals that chose to participate in the token sale but did not want founder status. They were still a part of the money raised during the token sale and therefore are showing support for this project prior to the network actually launching....

Here is another idea that I love, but am not sure how we could pull it off.

In building projects they often sell bricks. For instance, for the Fenway Park refurb, you could buy a brick. They would engrave your name on an real actual brick. And cement it to the ground in the concourse. People that bought in are brick owners. They send you a map with the location of your brick.  If you attended a Red Sox game at Fenway Park you could actually visit and take a picture of your brick.

Buying a brick didn't mean you were investing in the construction project for some sort of return, but it did mean that you were looking to support it. The restoration of a beloved Baseball Park, or the creation of a Museum.  Or, to create Narrative.

Now, we cannot do physical bricks
but a something perhaps? …. and the label would spring from that
what that something is….  that's where I run out of creativity.

A pixel wall of contributor names is old hat, so maybe not that.  I like the virtual brick owner thing, just need some help finishing it off.





Wow, you guys really delivered! Thanks.

Sounds like there's some consensus around these:

  • Original, OP
  • Pioneer
  • Patron
  • Got NRVE

I think Backer has some support internally too.

The interesting thing about "OP" is that, in forum world, "OP" means "original poster," the person who initiated the new topic. 

I like Pioneer in general, and it does dovetail nicely with Founder, but it does conjure covered wagons for me...maybe that's not a bad thing? Pioneers put in the hard work of clearing land, going into unknown territory...

Although Patron is used by Patreon (which I don't think is a dealkiller), I love the connotation that they are supporting the arts and creativity, which is exactly what they did by supporting the token sale. Also easily understood by new people.

Even though I suggested Got NRVE, I'm now cooling on it a bit, thinking that eventually in Narrative we want everyone to have NRVE and it might confuse people.

Backer is short, sweet, and to the point, but feels a bit cold to me, like a "Backer" doesn't actually participate, they just pony up the cash.

You all have until about Noon Eastern US time today to make your case for these or any other suggestions

I would like to enter "Prime" as a contender.

Some definitions: 

  • earliest stage
  • spring
  • youth
  • the most active, thriving, or satisfying stage or period.
  • the chief or best individual or part

It is short and to the point plus I think it sounds cool  

Besides my entry I would vote for Pioneer.

I also wanted to add “NRVE Angels”

My last two cents (for now) are in support of these titles, ranked in order of preference:

  1. Patron (I was initially hesitant about it being used by Patreon, but it's a generic enough term that they can't corner the market on its use)
  2. Backer (while it may be a little colder than Patron, it's still an accurate description of the early investors)
  3. Prime (I like this one because it's a little cryptic... and that's cool)

Of the more popular options, you gotta go with Patron, for the following reasons in no particular order:

1) sounds officialish enough to not alienate outsiders in future pr

2) conveys a sense of being part of the larger community of these sorts of projects e.g. Patreus (obviously narrative will want to eat up the useful ones eventually but thats neither here nor there)

3) goes well with founder

4) popular support and no haters

Unrelated: I'm not going to be whitelisted in time to make the token sale. Cry a tear for me please.

I also don't mind Backers. It puts it into an obvious context, that it ranks just below founders. MICHELLEG I too am not personally in...but my husband is...I guess he is holding my cryptopurse strings until we can switch over to me, since I am the content maker in the family and will be the active user.

no creo que patron sea una palabra de conformidad para las personas que llevan mucho tiempo siendo controladas

Hola Carlos, entiendo lo que interpretas, pero en este caso el significado de la palabra "PATRON" en ingles es para dar a enteder que es una persona que da apoyo financiero a una oganizacion, causa o actividad. Espero esto ayude. Saludos!
