Week-Long XP Contest: *500 LINGOT PRIZE* (EDIT: CONTEST OVER)
Hi everybody! I recently received over a thousand lingots on a random discussion post and I am looking for a way to give some of them away! Hence, this XP contest...
Information/How to Enter:
Comment with your username below and I will add you to the list of contestants (try not to write more than one comment so it's easier for me to keep track; if you have any questions, post on my stream instead)
Follow me so I can keep track of the XP you earn in the given time period. (EDIT: Evelyn Olson pointed out that I actually need to follow you, so just ignore this :-P)
XP can be earned both through doing new lessons/skills or refreshing old ones. Earn as much as possible!!!!
Since this is my first XP contest, I don't want to take on more than I can handle. Therefore, there are a LIMITED NUMBER OF SPOTS available: 20 slots. Spots will be given away on a "first come, first serve" basis. No contestants will be accepted once the contest has started.
There is no fee to enter the contest, although donations are appreciated and will raise the prize for winning.
I will not be participating in this contest, in order to keep everything fair.
The contest will run from Sunday evening on February 19 to Sunday evening February 26. Winners will be announced on Monday, February 27.
The 1st place winner will receive 500 lingots. They will also receive all lingots donated to this discussion.
The 2nd place winner will receive 100 lingots.
The 3rd place winner will receive 20 lingots.
Every contestant will receive 4 lingots simply for participating.

The contest is now over! Congratulations to the first, second, and third place winners shown above who will receive lingot prizes for the great amount of time and effort they devoted to the contest! Thank you so much to everyone who donated lingots and to everyone who participated! I hope you enjoyed the competition!
Sure thing! Remember to follow me for the duration of the contest starts so I can track your XP progress!
Just realized this and I feel kind of stupid now..
I will edit the post to clarify; thanks for pointing this out! :-P
I'd be happy to donate, but disappointed that I wont be participating. Therefore heres 20 lingots since I have about 1.2k lingots!
I had an illusion that someone got a streak of one a little while back? I was mistaken, I think! :-/ (I know, I know, just sending a message!)
Hehe :) Aria, you're so observant. So nice to hear from you :D
Yay!! You are so close to level 24! I can't wait :-)
Yaay! So nice to hear from you!
You're so kind! I just realized... Nevermind! I'm on mobile now, but I'll look forward to seeing you on German level 23! :D Whenever you were ready, of course.
OOH! They have something newww! Eeee!
Funny, the day I come back to check in, they add something new :P
Ooh, riiight! You know more Spanish than me, be my guest in using the "Stories" thingy! :D
Duo loves you, it's official! :P
Hey, Iris? I don't mean to be a nuisance (or nosy either, for once), so feel free not to respond, but when you change your name and description, it makes me think something is up. Care to share? Can I add my prayers? (And, not to mention that I find the two sentences very much expressive of my own situation...)
Aria! Nothing's up :) just preparing my self to maturity in Christ because He is coming soon. :-)
Oh no, I hope you are okay. I'm praying.
I'd say that's quite something, not nothing! I'm happy for you! And I wonder how would I meet him when he comes, that's something to ponder, and act on.
I'm under stress, but I can handle it. Thanks for praying, I'm gonna need that. (I'm also not the type to ask people to pray for me alone, but when you say that yourself, I can't say no! :D)
Yaaay! Thank youu! :D I'm not sure if I'd be brave enough to reset the tree like you, but it might give me something other than the streak to come to Duolingo for.
I don't think you are following me yet, Ferret513. This is going to be a fun challenge! Thank you for putting it together!
That's okay, Ferret513, you have a lot of us to keep up with. :)
haha thanks, Grandmumm! By the way, you have an impressive assortment of flags! Must be hard work learning all those languages!!
Thank you, Ferret513! I take them one at a time. I find the Germanic and Romantic languages build upon one another in their specific family group. The tough ones for me so far have been Irish and Welsh. I can just imagine how diffuclt Russian is going to be!
Yes, I know Russian is supposed to be very difficult. Still, I'm sure you'll be able to do it!! Good luck!
Donate lingots TO THIS COMMENT for the second place winner. Only donate to the discussion for first place
(EDIT: Maximum amount of lingots accepted for second place winner is 3100, with the original lingot prize included. I know this is a ridiculously high number. I DO NOT expect anyone to donate this much or even donate at all. I just need to make the max 400 lingots lower than first place since that is what I started with.)
Donate lingots TO THIS COMMENT for the third place winner. Only donate to the discussion for first place. I will update the discussion every day to show how many lingots each place would be receiving at that time.
(EDIT: Maximum amount of lingots accepted for third place winner is 3020, with the original lingot prize included. I know this is a ridiculously high number. I DO NOT expect anyone to donate this much or even donate at all. I just need to make the max 480 lingots lower than first place since that is what I started with.)
(EDIT: Despite the maximum listed above, the third place also has to get less lingots than second place. If the number donated puts it higher than second place, any lingots donated here will go to the second place winner instead.)
Awesome! You're on the list! Here's your four lingots!
(EDIT: Remember to follow me during the contest so I can keep track of your XP)
I know exactly how much xp I will have by the end of this week. I will not say how much but I shall join instead.
If slot 20 hasn't already been filled, I'll participate!
I didn't get the message; could be my notifications are still buggy from a while back, but maybe not. I will register on Community Translation today; so sorry it's taken so long.
Reply to the earlier message: Unfortunately, I couldn't find that email. :-( I'll keep looking and let you know if I find it, but I'm not sure if anything will turn up.
Hope all is well with you! And sorry you went without a response to that message for so long!
Thank youuu! I'll be relieved if you did sign up, not to worry that I actually might lose contact with you. :-|
Don't worry about it! I'll just make something up! :D
I'm all systems go, waiting to do a little jig after hearing good news of your registration. :-) And why on earth is she apologizing... We had a deal, remember? You were supposed to practice not apologizing for anything when it comes to me, so you could get away from over-apologizing :D
Oops, I logged off before you responded! I registered and got my account verified. I didn't have time to do anything else today, but I'll get on again tomorrow and take a look at everything! Haha, okay! Ugh, I know, I know, I'm working on it :D It really has been helpful to practice on you. :-) Logging off now, so I probably won't catch your response, but I'll reply as soon as I can!
Uh, I don't know how to do a jig , exactly then why did you say it, does running around count?! Glad to have you along! One more thing, you'll need to post at least one post to be able to message people. Browse to "General Discussions" and find the "Make your first post here", or other things, or you can dive straight into a French project! :D You're doing a good job of it, keep it up! :-P (And thanks, I mean it, for trying to reply as soon as you can, but that's really not necessary!)
Hahaha, running around's fine with me :D :D Yes, I got some kind of message about that when I first signed up; I'll make my first post today. :-) Haha, I know but I don't like to keep you awaiting a response too long :-)
Yes, tree shortcuts are allowed. Thank you for asking. Good luck!
(EDIT: Just noting that although tree shortcuts are allowed, please do not abuse the system or participate in any form of cheating. This is not directed at iToochPlayer; it's just a message to everyone. Good luck!)
Sorry but all the spots have been filled up. Lots of people do XP contests though, so it shouldn't be too hard to find another one.
Hi. I'm sorry to inform you that all the spots in this XP contest are filled up. However, many users do XP contests so it shouldn't be too difficult to find another one! Best of luck!
Hi Aria! My email notifications are only working for the original message posted to my activity, so I can't see any replies. I can reply to these ones here:
Reply to first comment: Thank you! I had 'Europe' originally because I was learning French and Europe was where, for the most part, my language skills could be useful. However, there are a lot of wonderful places outside of Europe that I'd also like to go, so I though I'd better edit to include all of those. Haha, I do love music!
Reply to second comment: I wasn't just giving away lingots though; you earned them!! :D :D :D Yes, I'm so glad our friendship came out of that contest!
By the way, are you still using that Community Translation website? If so, I'm going to make an account. Sorry it's taken me this long to get around to it :/
Pas de problème!
1st: It's curious you chose France just because of language skills! Curious but very practical! :D And I'll be sure to send you some music once in a while!
2nd: Agh, you know what I mean! :D :D I'm so so (:D) glad our friendship came out of that contest!
Yes, I'm still there, and starting to like the system! Please do register, and forget about the lateness or whatever, you don't have to to do anything! When you did, you should comment here just to say who you are there, and get your account verified so we know, for example, F513 there isn't a troll and users will trust you in projects. Here's a screenshot of how the translation works, people choose a color and start translating! As if it wasn't awesome by itself, SiteSurf joined us O_O And I recently found out that Gabrielle is a native French too!
I'm always in the mood for new music!! :D Haha, yes I do know what you mean, and thank you for all your compliments! Alright, I'll register either today or tomorrow! Looks awesome and I'll be glad to join in!
Alright, here goes! "Faith", theme by Hans Zimmer, performed by Lorne Balfe and Lisa Gerrard, "The Bible" soundtracks. (Note: I haven't seen the series, I just think the piece is beautiful and in accordance with its name) Hear it on Spotify or Youtube.(If you're not feeling like long music, listen to it later, it's very touching!)(And send me some music when you could!)
You deserve them! I look forward to seeing you there!
90 90 90 90 90 wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot! Ten days remaining to 100!
