We really appreciate all our creators who've shared their stories and connected with the Vocal community this past week. We're pleased to offer a bonus to these standout contributors as a little "thank you" for their hard work.
A reminder of some ground rules we use to formulate 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.
