1000 Days!

I've hit 1000 days on Duolingo. WOOHOO! So here's the deal---I have accumulated way more lingots at this point than I could ever possibly need. I'd rather they go out and do some good in the Duolingo community than sit in my virtual lingot bank. To celebrate my 1000 day mark, I want to give some away.

Therefore, if you're in need of lingots, comment below and lingots shall flow from the heavens.`

Edit---Hey everyone, thanks for all the love and support you've given to my thread! I'm surprised that it attracted as much attention as it did. Although I would love to continue this, what seemed like an infinite well of lingots yesterday is now quickly running dry. Therefore, from here on out, please don't be offended if you comment and don't get lingots. Sorry! It's just a cold mathematical reality that I'm starting to run up against. This has been a ton of fun and I hope to do it again someday.

Knowledge is important. Keeping the streak is not important. Learning is the most important. Yes, I am fluent in English. But if you work hard, you can keep the streak. It can help you remember every school day by not learning will lose streak.

True, but the streak also encourages consistency, which is what I like about it.

Did you practice ever day or use streak freezes? P.S. I don't need lingots, I don't really use them. Thanks for offering!

April 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andrew_McClure

I've had a streak freeze from the store for a long time, but luckily I've never had to use it.

April 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SLEJ4

Wow, that makes it even more impressive! Just in case something happens to it, you should take a picture of your streak!

    Congrats! I started 16 months ago but have just crossed 300 days streak as I lost two streaks. Now I always keep a streak freeze as insurance and it has come in handy several times. Your 1000 day streak is really impressive because you did not even use the streak freeze. You must be really dedicated and I notice that you have reached the highest level in Spanish. All the best Andrew! Is it challenging to do so many languages at the same time? In fact why are you doing so many at the same time?

    April 8, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andrew_McClure

    Thanks! Many of the languages on my list I haven't studied in a while. Duolingo keeps your streak if you just do one of them a day, so I don't actually do all of them consistently. Realistically it would probably be better for me to just focus on one language, but I can't help but sign up for a language when it's released just to see what it's like.
