Scottish Gaelic: What is the level of interest?

Hi everybody, I'm making this thread to see if there is much interest in Scottish Gaelic being added to Duolingo and if that is likely at any point in the near future.

There is a thread about it here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4458709

This is the best thread to comment on because it is mentioned in this post, which is Duolingo's guidelines on how to show interest in a new language being added: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/15014194

Haha, I do not. But I've always been interested. Irish and Scottish Gaelic look kind of intimidating and I've never gotten enough motivation to just get through it for Scottish. Yet. But Scottish Gaelic is the one I'd want to go with between the two.

I can understand that, they probably look pretty peculiar to anyone not familiar with them. I have the advantage of having learnt Irish for many years so I'm famiar with the pronunciation, word order and spelling etc.

It sounds good to me but they still need to keep improving on the the westy type that is currently on now as well.
