The Insane XP Competition: Team Edition #2
Welcome to the second team edition of the Insane XP Competition!
What is it about?
Good question! Each day, competitors must earn a certain number of XP. If they fail to do so, they are eliminated. The winners will get their name put on the Insane XP Competition hall of fame!
~ Every day, teams are set a specific amount of XP, which they have to earn by the end of the day. Each team member must earn at least half of the XP set.
~ If teams do not earn enough XP, they are eliminated. If one member does not earn enough, the other one stays in. The competition ends when there is one team, or one person left.
~ Up to 30 competitors can join. You have until midnight UTC+12 on Saturday 16th of April to join.
~ When you have finished a task tell me by posting on my stream. Make sure you include an image of your XP chart as well as the time you completed the task. I will be following you anyway, so you can't cheat:)
~ Follow me if you want so you can access my stream quicker.
~ To join, tell me below in the comments section and please specify your timezone (this is important!). You should also include your preferred team number and if you can take a screenshot.
~ You cannot begin a task until you are allowed to. If you finish the task earlier, your work will not be counted!
~ You are allowed to use immersion.
~ You can start each task at 00:00 UTC your time zone.
~ Have a good time, and good luck!
~ Follow the discussion, otherwise you won't see the tasks!
~ Earn 1 lingot each for every day you survive.
~ Earn 1 lingot each if your team is the first to finish a task.
~ The winners will earn 2000 lingots each!
~ Second place will earn 1000 lingots each!
~ Third place will earn 500 lingots each!
Lingot donations for the prizes will be gladly appreciated:)

FAQ and Suggestions:
(This is where I put any questions you have asked so others can see them)
and that's it! You can donate lingots if you want to help, which will be very helpful. Please don't upvote comments, since I need to know the order in which people join!
Don't forget to read the rules properly, and don't rush to sign up instead!
Ok! I just need to know your time zone, and if you can take screenshots or not.
Sure! Just let me know what time zone you are in, if you can take a screenshot of your xp circle, and what team you'd like to be in:)
Thank you for the fast reply! I have Eastern Time Zone and I would like to join any Team. Here is a screenshot of my XP Circle:
Oh sorry! Didn't see your comment:) To join, say what UTC (timezone) you are in eg. +1, or Eastern Standard Time. This is so you can have a full 24 hours to finish the task. Then, what team you want to be on, and then if you can take a screenshot of your xp circle. If you need help with the last point, let me know:)
Kaixo! : ) Here are 400 Lingots to cover the costs and prizes for your competition. I can hardly wait for it to start : D Good luck to all the competitors of Duolingo : )
How did you transfer so many lingots? Is there an easier way than clicking on 'Give Lingot' 400x times?
I use a userscript. You click the button and enter how many lingots you want to give. You can find the link on the Duolingo wikia.
Sure! I just need to know your UTC (timezone) and If you can take screenshots or not:)
Timezone- +5.30 UTC
May I also know the task for Day 4?
P.S. BTW, did I have to make a comment here? I wasn't aware that the discussion was unlocked ages ago!!
Ok! I just need your UTC (timezone), and if you can take a screenshot or not. The screenshot is of the XP circle.
My timezone is UTC+01:00, you can put me in Team twelve and taking screenshots is not a problem! :)
Hi, can I join? My timezone is +00.00, and I can take screenshots. I don't mind which team I'm on!
Hi all, I'm jrikha a moderator her eon Duolingo.
I'll lock for some times this discussion due to our heavy spammer.
EDITION: I unlocked it. Sorry for the necessary inconvenience.
Will you be able to see my daily XP on my profile? I don't know how to post pictures.
Can you take the screenshot? If you can, upload the screenshot to Imgur and then post the link on my stream. Also, I need to know what team you want to be on and your UTC (Timezone).
Just to let you know, every time you finish a task, you need to do another screenshot as proof that you did it:)
I have a question. What does this rule mean: ~ You can start each task at 00:00 UTC your time zone.?
Basically, you start the task at midnight when it reaches midnight where you live:) Then you have 24 hours to complete the task:)
Sure! I just need to know your UTC (Timezone) and if you can take a screenshot or not.
Great! You will need to post one every time you finish a task, as proof that you did it:)
Hi I want to join too. Central European Time, I can take screenshots, doesn't matter which team.
can i join Team Fourteen? my time zone: UTC/GMT +7:00. i can take screenshot :D
Hi! I'd love to join! UTC -7 (US Pacific). Any team is fine :) I know how to make and post screenshots too.
Donating 10 lingots too :)
Sign me up, please, I'll happily add to the insanity factor.
My time zone is UTC+2 (aka CEST) currently. I'll be able to do screen shots.
! As the amount of Xp earned by my Team mate Even i have earned that amount and i think i have completed my task for day 1
Okay, just to clarify this: When you write
Earn at least 600XP each!
do you mean each Team or each Team member?
Thanks for clarifying, I thought so. Please answer this also: What team is considered finishing first? The one that one of the members finishes before everyone else? Or the one that both teammates finish their goals throughout the day and there are no other whole teams finishing before them?
It depends, the timezone helps with this, but it's basically the team that finishes first, taking into account their timezone:)
Hey i should not be eliminated . Check your stream and i will post it here too !
As you know I am on IST time . I have earned 200 , 800 and 600 xp in the following days respectively which is higher than the goal . However I have not completed the task for 3rd day so please take me in
I would try, but unfortunately I lost my phone so it's harder to take screenshots on a computer. Hopefully I'll eventually figure it out. ^_^
One question: how will you announce the start of the competition/change of daily goal?
