I have been using Duolingo for two years now. After getting a good daily streak going, it became very easy to accumulate lingots. It would be great if there were other options on how to spend one's lingots. I know I have seen other posts discussing the benefits of a week long (or month long) streak freeze. Another solution would be to allow for a higher number (or unlimited number) of daily streak freezes to be equipped.

Is there any motivation to develop different ways for users to spend their lingots?

Do any of you have (realistic and duo-centric) options that you wish lingots could buy?

One thing I would like to see are additional bonus skills that provide more detailed scenarios in: travel, restaurant dining, grocery shopping, clothes shopping, etc. Other bonus skills that would be helpful would be asking detailed directions, e.g. sightseeing, museums, dining options, libraries, train stations, cities, restrooms.

Well, at least the original post had something to do with lingots! The comments were basically an amazing photo contest. ;)

I don’t like the idea to have to gather lingots for anything. this is a free app/site and should stay that way.

a leaderboard where you can see how many lingots you’ve been given in the forum, bc of your good answers, would be great prestige ( not how many you have, but how many you’ve been given as appreciation) it should be on your profile so everyone can see!!

I’m very greatful to some of the people giving me really thorough answers here bc of the goodness of their hearts
