March: XP Contest! Lingot prize!

Hey guys! It's me, and I've decided to host an XP contest. This contest is absolutely free, although donations will help make a better prize for the winners.

When: March 1 - March 31. Contest will start on March 1st, 12:00 AM PST.

How: All you have to do is gain xp! It doesn't matter what language, or whether you are strengthening a skill. It will be recorded in the beautiful leaderboard.

Prize: So far, we have 78 lingots that will be used for the prize.

First Place - 67 lingots

Second Place - 6 lingots

Third Place - 5 lingots

If anyone would like to propose a change, add it to your comment. I will NOT be competing in this contest, as it's simply not fair. To join, comment your favourite language (on or off Duolingo) down below! If less than 5 people have joined in the next 2 days, this contest will be either postponed or canceled completely. Also... if there is anything I have missed, please comment or add it into your entry post. Only post 1 post so I won't get "confuzzled." Thanks!

P.S To keep this post from being unseen, upvote it so that the "dislike-spammers" don't make this post invisible. Share with your friends!

P.P.S You are allowed to do ANY language. I asked you to comment your favourite language so I know you want to enter the contest.

People joining: iToochPlayer, MaskMario, Streak-KingEevee, GnomeMario, AnlcyGlaceon, IanShales, ccKINGg, lilyflower231, lisha-song2005, IamElijahRenz, Kevin359249, TheWiseOwl6, Schicksal6, MarinesAce, RYKim, AshiraRenz, Abhishek704123, cjknight09, Rabbiehill, LogannnM YOU CAN NO LONGER ENTER, AND IF YOU WANT TO DO SO, YOU WILL HAVE TO GIVE 2 LINGOTS.

Thanks :) I did that because I am now leaving Duolingo :( I have found that Duplingo is too distracting and I am not doing the best in my schoolwork. So I have decided to leave Duolingo. I hope the rest of your contest goes great. And if I win first place prize, I am going to let you keep it (the prize) for yourself. That is what you get for making such a great contest :)
