    I've been struggling to grow my audience during my time on vocal. I mainly use fb and tiktok, does anyone have any advice on what/how to grow some more?

    Would love to see equal TOP STORY FRONT PAGE exposure for all. Thank you.

    My tips amount ($75) isn’t reflected in my wallet, just wondering when I’ll be able to see it there and withdraw. Thank you

    I'm confused... is there any accuracy to the vocal stats whatsoever? My last story supposedly has 2 likes but 0 reads... One person commented on it, and I even got a tip. Don't know if I'm being trolled or if the stats are just something that I should ignore...

    Can a creator win in more than one category on the leaderboard? If one places in one category and also places in another category, are you limiting the person to one win?

    Happy Halloween!! Just wondering if you are considering anything more to do with the editing tools? I would love more options when writing a story. At the least, I would love a stationary edit bar at the top of my composition screen. It's a pain to chase it down on a Chromebook. Maybe a different font or two? Thanks in advance Mother Combs

    Was wondering. On the Leaderboard, there needs to be more transparency. Beside the winners name, the qualifying number of engagements interactions. In addition, quantity of most likes, most subscribed to, and most supportive. The names and numbers would give the leaderboard more credibility.

    Could the following tags be included where best appropriate? Vocal Holiday There may be other suggestions, or opportunities to prune some if they aren't used. I frequently refer to this labor of love by Pam Reeder to see at a glance the tags available. Occurs to me other may enjoy it. And, Vocal- perhaps it could be used as a Creator-made Tip/Guide, too? https://vocal.media/journal/how-vocal-communities-confuse-me-so-dt1w6001wr

    Also, for word limit challenges, do hyphenated words like “I’ll-fated or thirty-five” count as 1 or 2 words. The word count says 1. Just making sure In case the judges use a different method for counting words. Thank you.

    Hello…I was thinking the other day how it would be cool if we can use earning to by merch. Not sure how feasible it would be, just throwing it out there. Thank you.

  • Mark Gagnonabout a month ago

    I'm trying to understand the math. I saw that we got paid a penny per read but it rarely works out that way. Would someone please clarify this? Thanks!

  • Donna Reneeabout a month ago

    Hi! Just wondering…For challenge entries, do you have to be a vocal+ member for the entire challenge timeline? Or do you just have to make your entry while your membership is active? Thanks!

  • Sorry to drop this Unresolved Issues With Vocal: Over a year ago I reported a fault with stats, I documented it in this piece. Was told it was Ok. Nothing Done. https://vocal.media/journal/issues-with-vocal-that-may-never-be-resolved Over a year ago I reported that Ambassadors Due Payments were not being automatically transferred so I had to raise tickets. I was told I didn’t have to raise a ticket because the system was fine. I haven’t raised a ticket for the one that was due on the 13th October. This has just been p nearly two weeks after it was due Notifications are flooded with publications which I see in my Subscription feed anyway. This was raised months ago. We were told that a filter would be implemented, but Nothing done. I didn’t raise Blocking of abusive creators , but it was raised months back. We were told it was on the roadmap, but nothing has happened. My last wallet withdrawal was only released after I sent a sarcastic message, so does that mean we will have to raise a ticket going forward in the hope of being paid? These are just a few of the issues that are still happening on Vocal and seriously need addressing. They do not show Vocal in a Professional light. Having said that Vocal is the best writing platform that I have ever written on and I continually promote it and recommend it, but these issues need addressing
