What should be added to the lingot store?

Lingots are a great reward, but are they motivating enough? Do you think there should be more items added to the lingot store? If so, what should be added?

These are a few of my ideas: - more Duo outfits - a longer Streak Freeze - different Duolingo themes (backgrounds, fonts, colors, etc.)

Conversations are at the top of my wish list (please see https://www.duolingo.com/comment/12403125)

Different backgrounds/fonts/colors would be nice. A close second for me.

There are many browser add-ons that can change backgrounds/fonts/colors for a specific website.

Nothing should be added. My view is that lingots should be abolished completely.

They're not much use. The motivation is learning the language. They could provide a fun part of the site; they are sometimes used as currency for games. However, I don't think the developers should invest any time in working on items to be added to the lingot store.

In my view they serve mostly to distract users from getting on with the work of learning a language and to encourage the kiddies to clutter up the forums obsessing about them. I'm not sure that they really do encourage learning, as those who obsess about them most are almost invariably the ones who are learning least.
