Vocal Bonus Leaderboard: 11/29/2023

Celebrating creativity, engagement, and community building on Vocal.

By Vocal TeamPublished 3 months ago β€’ Updated 3 months ago β€’ 3 min read

Welcome to the latest edition of the Vocal Bonus Leaderboard, where we showcase the outstanding achievements of our creators! 🌟 Based on feedback from yesterday's Creator Chat (and many other voices prior!), we are thrilled to introduce a new Leaderboard category: Emerging Creators. This award recognizes creators who joined the platform within the last 90 days, and achieved the highest combined number of likes and comments on a story published in the past week. It's our way of acknowledging and encouraging new creators on the platform. The addition of this award is just the beginning of enhancements we will make to the Leaderboard.

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.
  • Now, let's dive into this week's winners. Each creator has played a crucial role in making Vocal a hub of creativity and engagement.
