So I know a lot of people participating in Teenage Polyglot's Nalalemo, which may have led them to ignore gilding their other trees. So I got the idea of re-gild month.

Proposition

Take a screenshot of your tree at the beginning of the month

Try and get as many skills golden as possible

Take another screenshot at the end of the month to show your progress.

What do you think?

I love it! Also, I'm apparently a bit uninformed: what is Nalalemo? I'm figuring National Language Learning Month but I'm not sure of the challenge specifics

You guessed right! So the goal is much like that of Nanowrimo. You start a brand new tree, and see if you can finish before the month is out. I failed, badly.

Thank you! Out of curiosity, which tree did you try to do? So I can avoid it :-P

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds Italian really difficult! I've spoken French as a second language most of my life, and I've picked up Spanish with relative comfort, so maybe I just assumed that Italian would come easily. Not so much.

I totally agree! It's not as easy as people think just because you know Spanish and French

the idea seems fun but i dont think it can take a month. technically ,depending on your proficency in the language, you can regild everything in one day even :P maybe make it a week and the challenge is to maintain it golden throughout the whole week?

True. I meant it more for people who have busy lifestyles like a lot of my friends so I suggested a month...it's still in its beginning phase. :)
