Just hit 200
I just got to a 200 day streak! I am really happy with my accomplishment! I don't know if i'll be able to hold it over the summer, but I'll try! Anyone else have a goal? Mine is a year strait of Duolingo.
samn79 I think I figured out who Lingot bombed you. So a couple of days ago, two users suddenly disappeared (They were brothers). One of them was in an XP contest with me, so I went to check on his XP. He wasn't there. I even searched his name and got no results, but I don't think it was this one. He would have had way more Lingots. I think it was the other one, since he didn't have as much. I'm guessing they had to delete their accounts for some reason, so LewisFassero Lingot bombed you before he got off. It sounds like a conspiracy theory, and I'm probably wrong, but it makes sense.
My information says both LewisFassero and ElliotFassero were cheaters, for lingots and XP alike. I reported the second one and I'm aware at least one other user reported both, and they both got removed by staff. They wouldn't have gotten an alert to spend their lingots.
There are many users who have lots of lingots, the lingots are practically useless in time. Some like to promote competition between other users, and, I'm guessing, that one didn't go as well as the donor expected.
I find it crucial to set the goal to be rather low - a lesson a day. There's no need to set the bar so high that it's unrealistic to be able to achieve it. I might not always have a half hour to do multiple lessons - but it's easy enough to find five minutes to review one lesson.
