More bonus skills and slots, please!

I love the bonus skills. I have tons of lingots, and if I could spend them all on bonus skills I probably would. However, there are insufficient skills and slots - only 3 of each in German, and none in Danish! (My 2 current trees.) Are we likely to get more skills and slots? Or maybe advanced versions of current skills? I would be so thrilled, and I bet I'm not alone in that!

As for Danish, I'm sure that at some point there will be some added, just as I've seen the Norwegian skills pop up and disappear every now and then.

For German, though, there's only enough slots for the three skills offered for German. As for anything beyond that, who knows what the future will bring? I think for now the big focus is on creating Tree 2.0 for established courses, though.

I think you're right, HyattDean! I switched back from Danish to German and discovered that 47 new skills had been added.

I was meaning the Tree 2.0 for all of the languages in general, not just the German tree. I was just saying that if they ever do decide to add more bonus skills and skill slots, it probably won't be until after the Tree 2.0 phase of the site is a bit more finished.

But, then again, they may very well surprise me with an additional three somewhere in between.

Additional slots would be nice so that all languages will have the standard couple of skills that most languages have plus language-specific skills. As it is right now, Norwegian will have a Nynorsk skill, so it had to sacrifice one of the standard bonus skills.
