Vocal Bonus Leaderboard: 11/1/2023

Celebrating creativity, engagement, and community building on Vocal.

By Vocal TeamPublished about a month ago β€’ Updated about a month ago β€’ 3 min read

It's time to honor this week's standout creators and their contributions. Before we announce the Leaderboard winners, we would like to address some questions (special thank you to Babs Iverson) we received about how we create the leaderboard. Please see the rules we are following currently when creating the leaderboard:

  • The time period of data analyzed for each weekly Leaderboard is collected from 12:00am Wednesday - 11:59pm Tuesday ET each week.
  • Creators can only win one place in one category on the leaderboard.
  • Creators cannot win the same category two consecutive weeks.
  • Creators will win the category that they placed the highest in. However, if the category they placed the highest in is the category they won the previous week, and they placed in another category in a lower place, they will win the category that they did not place in the previous week, in the lower place.
  • Changes made this week:

  • Honorable Mentions are now the stories that had the most comments without being selected as a Top Story. We have implemented this change based on comments we received from creators like Lamar Wiggins in previous Creator Chats.
  • Please note that the rules have evolved since the inception of the leaderboard to allow more creators to win. In the spirit of diversifying the winners, we have heard your feedback and would love to also include editorial picks that are not based on engagement in the future. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.

    • David B. Grinbergabout a month ago

      Thanks for the interesting info and insightful articles. I am brand new here. I write a lot about politics and social justice issues, as well as foreign policy. How do I post in The Swamp and any related groups? Is it just curated? Thanks for the info, as I try to catch up with all the comprehensive information the wonderful editors have provided for newbies like me.

    • Brin J.about a month ago

      Awesome, I appreciate the Leaderboard, I like seeing the stats! Honestly, it's a good incentive for people to interact more. You guys should do something like "Vocal Points" for contributions or something. Not sure what the points would be used for? Maybe when people get enough, it could add up to actual money? Just a thought☺️, but I do love how much more engagement there's been since the Leaderboard was created <3.

    • Babs Iversonabout a month ago

      Thank you for clarifications on rules!!! Because I won last week in most supportive, I should not have been eligible for this week's most supportive category on Leaderboard.

    • Justine Crowleyabout a month ago
