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.
When I started I didn't know what a streak was. Then when I found out I already had 39 days! I decided to continue to get to 100 and now I am at 200!
Congratulations! Streaks are the best way to accumulate lingots, and they can show some level of dedication of the user behind them. Although they can also be potential burdens.
(Note, yes, I know it's you, but this isn't harmful like that last one was.)
Your streak is really long, a few more months and you'll have a streak of a year! That's would be really cool!
Nice Job! I'm aiming for 100. To hold on to your streak, set notifications for Duolingo or on your phone.
It is fine, just use Google Chrome and turn on notifications. Thanks for your encouragement, I will get to 100 days!
Nice! I'm working on mine. I usually haven't had to use a streak freeze although I always keep one handy.
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.
