Hey Everyone,

Don't forget to vote on Niches.  With an influx of new members, there are a lot of new Niche suggestions in the Ballot Box. Please go in and vote.  Remember, voting on niches helps build your reputation on Narrative!

Sometimes it becomes rather tedious and hard to go in and vote for niches - I notice you need to scroll through all of them (even ones you voted for) and the ones that are "new" or you still need to vote on are sometimes in the middle, and only visible because you have the arrows on them.. 

Don't suppose we could get a filter of some sort to make it easier to only see the ones that need voting?

*Also separate gripe - "Pencils" seriously? 

@Crystal. There can certainly be "related niches". See this blog about Niche Relationships. The community will vote to see if this is a duplicate…but I can see how this one is a bit on the grey line.   Ideally the first one proposed should get the thumbs up. You can vote the other one down (Insects and Amphibians) and indicate why. Suggest you include a comment  that suggest that this focus on just Amphibians….or something to that effect.  Others who are voting will then see your note.  The power of community! 

Goodness....just looking through the list of Niche's that need votes and it is a bit overwealming....not to mention time consuming.  Could the @Narrative Network Team make the ballot box sortable, so at the very least I can see the Niches I haven't voted for yet on top?

I'm wondering if we should incentivize Niche voting from a community perspective....I know reputation will be affected if you are voting against the majority, but I don't think it takes a hit if you aren't voting...which makes sense...perhaps we can award NRVE for voting?....We could also create a leader board and award the top people that have voted the most...have it reset every week / month.  It would turn voting into a bit of a competition to get people involved.

@BANTER. Thanks for getting in there and trying to vote. Right now, I don't anticipate any changes to Chaucer on the ballot box. Our developers are heads down right now and focused on the beta. We do recognize that Niche ballot box voting can be a bit overwhelming. The good news is you can actually see if you voted so skip by those.  Some of us on the Narrative Team who spend a lot more time in the Niches have been going in there and adding comments (e.g., there is already a niche with similar name and description) to help researching the Niches for voting.  

Will think about incentives!

The fact that there are "related niche's" allowed is the reason I would not purchase a niche right now.

I don't see why someone would pay for niche's today the prices are outrageous. Niche's only have value if Narrative is a success and assuming it will be, tokens are a better investment. Paying thousands of tokens for a Niche is ridiculous. I would rather save up tokens and buy popular niche's.

The only reason Narrative can get away with such high prices is because the typical above average investor is not very smart and most investors are not "above average". That is the nicest way I am going to word that.

There should be a free market with Niche's that begin at $10 and if no one else wants it, you then get it for $10. If others want it the price will be higher.

It's been a few days since I am approved as an alpha member, I have already started voting!

Let's see which if I can bag some niches for myself!

Still plenty of good niches available but I got my five already. And my wife got one niche. I wish you happy hunting!

I think we need a thread so we can share any of our niches. There is search box i know. Just an idea *GRINS

@MOLLY O - just had a thought about voting.

It would be helpful to have a function we can opt in for, that emails us a digest of new niches to vote on periodically.

The default could be set to once every 3 days, but with options to make it much less frequent if that's more appropriate for some folks.

It could also default to sending us 12 new niches to vote on each time, but with settings for more, or less.

If opting in to this function is presented as part of the sign up process, and it is made very clear at that point that voting is a great way to increase your reputation on the platform, with a reminder of some of the most important things reputation does for users...  I think we might see a significant boost in voting.

Incidentally, it is also a great way to gain exposure to new niches - in other words, a great way to discover more of Narrative.  It might be beneficial to present the email emphasizing discovery, with voting being just a cool, fun component of discovery?  Not sure on this point, but worth considering.

@Malkazoid. Good ideas. I always like Opting in "options".  We don't want to bombard people with lots of emails - especially if they have no interest in voting. When the platform opens up more broadly, I don't think we will have issues with getting people to vote…especially when they realize they can be earning more rewards.  That said, making it easier for those who want to spend the time to vote is a good thing.
