Vocal Bonus Leaderboard: 12/13/2023

Celebrating creativity, engagement, and community building on Vocal.

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

As we dive into another week of vibrant creativity on Vocal, we're thrilled to celebrate the voices that echoed the loudest and stories that resonated the deepest. From the spirited discussions sparked by Lamar Wiggins' "A Vocalite Holiday 2023" to the touching pieces by Heather Hubler, Kendall Defoe, and Brenton F, our community continues to flourish.

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.
  • And the winners are...
