Now, For The Top Writers

The new top writers ranking is updated daily and features the top 10 contributors with the most number of stories published in each Tech Category Visit https://hackernoon.com/c/programming for a taste of it.



How do we determine who wrote more?

We look at the most recent 100 stories per category and sort it by how many stories are written by the same writers. For instance, if you wrote 10 stories out of those 100, then you are probably a top writer for that category, depending on other writers’ publication numbers of course.


New Update Alert: Top Writers rankings now have their own dedicated page. Learn more here.
