Wouldn't it be great if we - as the DL community - could also give some gifts to all the people that work at Duolingo and all the people that contribute in some way to the functioning of the system (ie moderators, lessen builders, etc.)? A lot of people have been working really hard for us the past year and, as for me, I would really like to thank all these people very much.

So, any ideas, community? What can we give our beloved Doulingo contributors? (that is, something digital, let's not send them packages from all over the world, right?)

It is hard, we can't all be artists, and creativity that doesn't come easily. Especially to send it long distance.

If someone was a good cartoonist, they could create a comic book, Duo The Language guy/gal.

Maybe most of us can't create something like that, but at least we can create Fan-fiction with Duo the owl as the main character. Maybe he/she can be like Professor Owl, borrowing some concepts from X-Men, he teaches gifted students to use their knowledge of languages to solve the worlds to crimes.

Or like that guy from Sesame street, super monster or whatever he was called, eheh.

Fan-Fiction of Duo, plus we can then get it translated through immersion to all languages available in Duolingo.

The possibilities are endless.

Banksy is a London Grafiiti artist

He had a trip to New York

You may not have heard of him, but you've probably seen his work. From policemen with smiley faces to the Pulp Fiction killers firing bananas, Banksy's subversive images are daubed on walls everywhere

Write blog posts about duolingo? These could provide positive feedback or share language leaning tips with other learners... come to think of it, it would be great if there was a news/blog section of duolingo where contributors and duolingo staff could post news and updates so it wont get lost in the general forum

Duolingo has a Tumblr account www.duolingo.tumblr.com ^_^ Also, if you have a blog and want to share some love about Duolingo, that's a great idea! There is a post floating around on Tumblr with several hundred reblogs that has probably generated as many new users. The more people who post about this place, the more other people can find out about it and learn the languages they want, and the more people there will be to help build new courses. :D
