Let's try to make this happen! Give us an option to give lingots to people, rather than one by one.

Some of you may have seen this post already, but I wanted to suggest an option to give certain amount of lingots, especially to some of my duolingo friends. For example, let's say I want to go to their page and type in, let's say... 30 lingots. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought of this, instead of rewarding them one lingot at a time through their posts.

If you agree or disagree, I'm open to hear your thoughts. We hope that the staff members will take into consideration once we have many people that liked the idea here.

Oh yeah, you don't need to send me lingots, everyone. I have way too many. A thumbs up will do, if you like the idea. =P

EDIT: Thanks everyone for the debate. I may not have enough time to reply to everyone but I do read them all!

In the meantime, if you hold down the enter key and click really quickly on the Give Lingot button, it will give out more than one lingot. :)

But we can never tell how many exactly.

Both. Good= no more click, click, click, click,click,click,clickclickclick. Bad= Say I want to give somebody 10 lingots. I accidentally put 2 more zeros and.. suddenly, 1000 lingots are lost in cyberspace. Now, the person might give them back but.. first, that's kind of rude, asking for money back, and they may not give it back. So. Both.

Jesus, you though this through. Hehe, that is right, but: 1. Nobody would give away 1000 lingot accident or not, and 2. It can be sort of a double click combo: You click the "Give Lingot" tab, then click how much you want to send to the receiving user, then click a confirm button. That'll be pretty useful, huh, Inf?

I agree! But, it could be a minor problem of the masses of duolingo, so the mods probably won't do anything. I wish I was an admin so I can do that.

This isn't something for which moderators have the tools. It would have to be something for the Tech team. ;)

I like the idea but there are some things that people could be offended by this question, 1 they could not like the idea and randomly just start down voting everything. 2 they may just ask people for lingots a million times like, CAN I HAS LINGOTS PLS I WANT DEM LINGOTS LINGOTS LINGOTS!!!!!!! but no I personally would NEVER do that. i may ask for one in return give people other lingots is i get to a certain amount of lingots that i soon will get (ex. You give me a lingot and i will give everyone some lingots who gave me lingots.. btw i will try to keep track) And 3 there are some people who absolutely hate the thought of people asking for lingots...they loathe it....Anyways i hope i made myself clear, have a good day...
