March Duolingo Battle

Hi there everyone! Do you think you have what it takes to win some lingots? Yes? Then read on!

I will be doing a Duolingo battle for about three weeks during March 2016.

For those of you who have never heard of it, a Duoligo battle is when, over a set time period, you earn as much XP (experiance points) as you can, from lessons-related activities and immersion.

Contact me by message (https://www.duolingo.com/Pink-power1) to join the competition. I would prefer it if you would not comment to join as that could get confusing.

The competition will start on 1/3/2016 at midnight (UK time) and last until 21/3/2016 also at midnight. There will 5 teams with 4 members in them. I will add more teams if necessary. In each team, there will be a Team Captain. The Captain's job is to help and encourage the team members and give them all of the competition news (given by myself). If you have any questions, go to either your Captain or me.

Every person who joins will have to pay 4 lingots as a small entry fee. Please pay it on this comment for convinience. Those lingots will be going towards the prize money for the teams. Please note that I am not asking for lingots for my sake as all of the entry fees go towards prizes for the teams. Also, all participants must have a 1 day streak at least, just to prove that they will work hard and not dissappoint their team.

The team in first place will win 10 LINGOTS each. Second place will win 5 LINGOTS each and third place will win 3 LINGOTS each. Everyone else will win 1 LINGOT each. Every captain wins an extra lingot ( either from my own lingots or any extra lingot entries) as a reward for their hard work.

If you decide before the competition that you would like to withdraw your fee and pull out of the competition, you may do so anytime before 29/2/2016.

Please remember that this competition can only happen if I recieve enough lingots and have enough players. If I do not, the competition is cancelled. To help take us to the top of the board, it would be helpful if you all could up-vote this so that more people see it. Once the competition begins, no more people may join. If a team is short of members, one of my friends or I will join instead. Also, all times and dates are in UK time only.

As for calculating the results, we will have to use the scoreboards as a new rule has been made against classrooms being used for competitions. Every Sunday apart from the last week (6/3/2016, 13/3/2016 and 21/3/2016) the Team Captain must check the scoreboards and add up the XP scores for each player. They will then tell me ( by message ) and the scores will appear on this disscussion. This means that all participants must follow myself and their Team Captain. You can un-follow us after if necessary.

And now, as in every competition, I must tell you a few rules:

  1. Respect others, which means no swearing or nastiness of any kind.

  2. Do not change your usename anytime from when you join the competition to a week after it has ended.

  3. No skipping or testing-out of skills.

  4. Have fun!

The Captains will re-name their teams (hopefully after asking their team-mates opinions). If you would like to be a captain, message me to tell me. It is on a first-come first-serve basis.
