Lingots and their use.

Good people of the Duolingo community, I noticed that I have a d**kload of lingots and there are far less options how to spend them. This really bothers me, it's like, their value just drops, the magic disappears and renders them worthless. Anybody got ideas that puts them to good use? Please share on this discussion, as I have none of my own.

At a certain point, the only thing you can do with lingots is watch them pile up, and give them to the community for helpful comments. It is a common cry for the Duolingo team to add more stuff, but it is never done.

You could open a competition. Just ask people to take part in a competition, eg gaining as many XP as possible in a certain amount of time or ask them to do a specific task such as translations of a short text into the language they are learning and hand out the lingots as awards for those who did the best.

I agree. If they stop being a motivation to you, make them a motivation for others. See this link for more uses for lingots: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/7974728

I've always thought "what a shame".... lingots could be like a store with games or something, perhaps in the future? For now I'm going to enjoy what I have and keep an eye out o_0

I would really love to have duolingo add more bonus skills to the store. Until then, have 100 lingots.

That's what I am saying! Either that, or they should return the heart modifiers
