Duolingo Lingots

I feel like Duolingo Lingots are a great currency, but they often seem a little useless. I would like more items in the store to spend my hard earned ingots on, such as more lessons or more outfits. Anybody have any good ideas?

I agree but am fairly new to Duo. I would like to be able use lingots to purchase language tips & tricks, extra icons for interesting idioms/euphemisms, cultural knowledge, short video clips in target language, etc. I'd even like to see Duo dance! Because I am new, these may already exist and I am just not far enough along my tree to "discover" them.

This topic comes up about once a day here.

On the one hand, I do agree that it would be nice if there were more things to do with lingots.

On the other hand, it would intensify the lingot begging/giveaways and deviate from the educational core of this site. I feel that there is already too much emphasis placed on acquiring lingots, even when useless.

So in the end, I find myself leaning towards de-emphasizing lingots and perhaps getting rid of them completely. Fun things could get "unlocked" after learning/mastering certain sections like they are now, and that would better serve the community.

No, but I feel like after I do I'll run out of things to do quickly.

JackWalter, you have a very good point. There really aren't enough items. Maybe they are making more as we speak?
