      I find it hard for vocal to count my words no matter how many words I write my word count still shows zero

      Hello, I haven’t written a play or short story in a long time. I think I am ready to jump in. Hello to everyone here. You’re in the right environment!!! I can’t wait to meet all of you ( read)! Ha!!

      I would like to see an early morning Vocal yoga class where we all do yoga together. Do we have any yoga instructors. Just a silly thought that ran through my head. Or meditation, or etc. etc. Food for future thought.

      It’d be great if we could have a place to easily access all the community challenges/ competitions/ prompts

    • I still grow weary seeing all of the blatant AI accounts all over the site and (discord). It makes it impossible to find new creators and pointless to even try….. and shows no improvement 😔 They are spamming all over this site.

      I still want more editing tools and a permanent stationary editing bar.

      How long until a block feature will become enabled on the platform? May the Poets community receive a 'filthy' tag? May the Filthy community receive a 'poets/poem' tag? Will Vocal ever host a challenge free to enter again for all creators? Will Vocal ever host a challenge that has a limited amount of entries?

      Hello. I am new here, and I have published some articles and poetry related to Universe, Mystery, Cosmost, Parallel Universe, Quantum Reality, and Spirituallity. Kindly do give a read and suggest me topics to write upon

      I was wondering if it might be a good idea to have a customize option for tips. (Unless the phone shows different options than the website and I haven’t noticed, lol!) My other idea is to have collaboratively-made top stories get awarded to both/all creators, like 50/50 of the $5, or $5 each, whatever makes more sense.

      I'm just gonna' throw this out there one more time: Has any consideration been given to an alternate payment platform, such as PayPal? Stripe is a constant source of frustration for me.

      Hello Vocal, I've recently had written my 50th story but haven't received my $50 yet. Don't know if that's a problem on my pc or something happened.

    • Alex H Mittelman 2 months ago

      Ok, question. I joined vocal plus initially because of the Christopher Paolini challenge and the $10,000 prize and also thought the chance to meet an established famous author would be cool. I haven’t seen ANY COMPETITIONS like that since on vocal, and it’s been almost a year since I signed up. So, technically I have 3 questions. First, are there any major competitions coming up like that again EVER? Any soon? Second, I was thinking since it’s October (scary season) it would be AMAZING to have a horror writer like R.L. Stein, Stephen King, Joe Hill, or Grady Hendrix (or any other famous horror writer) have a competition for who can write the scariest, most eldritch story. Maybe another ghost story challenge or… just a scary story challenge. Third, I was wondering why the top prize for competitions went from $1000 to $500? Just curious!

      I saw a comment that alleged Vocal Creators that invest in Vocal are barred from winning Vocal competitions. I didn't note that in my research into becoming an investor (which I happily did). Can you confirm if this allegation is true or not?
