Any possibility of downloading one's own learning trace?
Currently on a 177 day streak, level 16, learning Russian, and I have to admit both to enjoying how much I am learning, as well as being intrigued at how well the system works for me.
Hence my question: is there a possibility of allowing users to download the data for their personal learning trace to compare with themselves as well as with the vast repository available on Github? I looked for ways to do this in the forums, the help page, and the wiki, but I can't seem to find it anywhere -- no-one seems to have asked this question either.
I understand that the format of the file is not everyone's cup of tea, but then I am sure there are many nerds among the millions of users of Duolingo who would enjoy the chance to play with their data. I can imagine visualisations, a contest of best presentation, an ecology of user tools to help people work with their own traces... The download could also be a way of "spending" gems or lingots for those who have not found other uses for them :)
Thanks for considering.

Make a personal classroom in "Duolingo for schools" by using https://schools.duolingo.com/help
In this discussion you can read, how to show all your personal data in Duolingo from day 1 until today.
I'm guessing it won't be an issue in this case, but because it can be confusing: Duolingo for Schools only has data going back to about December 20, 2014. So, for example, I have a 1500 day streak, but Schools reports that I have been active for 978 days, and lessons I completed prior to that date don't appear.
Congratulations with your imposing streak.

Thanks for the additional information. That is important to know.
Thanks! +1 vote and lingot for pointing out this resource. I still ask the Duolingo staff to answer or consider implementing my original request. The data I get from a classroom is limited compared to the data source in the repository I cited. And I am sure Duolingo does not want large numbers of people setting up personal schools to have access to data; it is not the original intent, I believe. Thanks again, and keeping fingers crossed.

Nowadays the staf is also promoting the schools feature for parental controle of their children. I don't think there would be too many people, who like to use this feature to have a limited (see davidcwalls' comment) overview of their personal data.
"Can Duolingo for Schools only be used in educational contexts?"
The comment of admin SeanColombo:
"There are no restrictions... go for it! :)"
You will hardly receive an answer of the Duolingo staff in the discussion forums.
- Duolingo's language courses are free of charge
- Duolingo has only a staff of about 70 persons and there are millions of students.
Usually you will receive help from other students (like me) and Moderators (unpaid, expert volunteers).
