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.

Sorry for the huge gap in prizes, it's to up the competitiveness level.
Hey guys, sorry for the false alarm, I was supposed to finish the contest on March 30. Sorry for any inconveniences caused. Prizes will be given out around now.
I don't know why. It's crazy! You actually might want to copy this entire discussion and paste it on a new discussion page.
Well, I guess this is all we'll play with... oh well. I can put 20 lingots in to this, so if anyone else can donate, that would be greatly appreciated.
Wait... is there a way you can see how many lingots one has? I'm putting 20 lingots into this, 100 if I get the 700 lingots mentioned above.
Did Trevor give you the 700 lingots from his January Competition?
I'm so sorry! I have so many people I follow who aren't on the list, so sometimes I overlook them or don't see their name on the contest list. I will get that updated right away!
Nope, any language. I asked you to comment a language so I can know you are joining, not just commenting.
I gave more Lingots than I wanted to! Will you please give me one Lingot back?
Can I still join? My favorite languages are Spanish, English, and American Sign Language. I gave 15 lingots.
My favorite language is English, because it is the only one that I know. lol I'll join.
I'll join. I gave 3 lingots. I will be doing Spanish. Please remind me on my stream when the contest start, thanks.
Hey Evelyn, I've previously competed with you on lily's contest and can see your making one. I don't want to join but can donate you 20 lingots. Hope that helps!
If you were wondering...
I just gave you over 1000 lingots :)
Have a WONDERFUL day :)
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 :)
Wait . . . if you're leaving, what are you going to do with the rest of your lingots?
I suspected you were leaving... thank you so much for everything you've helped me with, and just existing. You're awesome! Good luck with your schoolwork!
FINAL LEADERBOARD WILL BE UP BY TOMORROW. WHEN IT IS UP, THE CONTEST IS OVER.
I too want to join !! count me in !! My favorite language in Hindi but right now i am doing french and Spanish.
Hello can you refresh the leaderboard?
Done! Sorry, I've been on the mobile version instead of the web version.
