It's been a while, but I also work a lot better in a somewhat more competitive environment, so I'm just inviting y'all to add me too!

Okay, so here's your challenge. Get to level 25 before I do. I'm making an effort to keep a steady stream of 30 xp a day coming in, and I'm about the halfway point now, so if you make about 70 XP per day, you could win.

This is because levels and XP are not connected linearly. (17000 xp is needed for level 21, 30000 xp is required for level 25)

I'm not going to turn it into a competition for myself though, so don't expect me to make it harder on you just because you're catching up somehow. If that's what you're looking for, you might want to connect with someone else.

I think your maths is a little off: it should take you 413 days to get to level 25 at 30xp per day (starting at 17601), but it would take SerDustin 425 days to reach it on 70xp per day from 250 (you are past the point where he could possibly catch up with you with 70xp). 80xp would do it in 372 days, however (although that's quite a lot to ask—it's a good challenge, though).

Maybe, but my goal is to do 30 XP per day. However, there are some days where I don't reach that because I've only sank 20 XP into Irish and another 20 or 30 into Esperanto. It won't take a lot of those slip ups on my part for him to beat me having 70 XP per day.

I do agree, it's quite a challenge, seeing as I already have a year and a half of work in my XP count, in which I've managed to build up a bit of discipline. It's a lot of work, but it seems doable.

Looking at some other very enthusiastic learners here on the forums, I can even say that others have gotten to level 25 in the time it took me to get to level 21, so it can be done.
