From my personal point of view, Duolingo is running out of ideas for the Lingot Store.
Possibly, if this post gets upvoted, and more people are contibuting, Duolingo might have more ideas to choose from. I believe that this would be useful for those who have been learning for a while, possessing many lingots, and also already having everything from the lingot store.
Thanks for all of your contributions! I hope the Duolingo Lingot Store will have more to purchase soon.
my suggestions would be:
more bonus skills!! i've said it before and i'll say it again, and this certainly won't be the last time: you can never have too many bonus skills!!
maybe medals? it would be cool to get medals for completing trees and getting high streaks and stuff like that that would go on your profile, so maybe a few expensive ones in the store?
maybe a short section of the tree? like an add on? it would only be like 1 checkpoint long.
an alphabet chart, like one to print out, with all the letter names and pronunciations
just some ideas, tell me what you guys think!! will add to this post if i think of more :D
I'm not criticising your comment carm.ela because you're probably right, this is more just me venting my dislike for the current discussion forum setup.
I can't help but think the issue of similar discussions done over and over again, is in part, to do with how arduous the discussion forum is to navigate.
For example, just today I came across two very similar, almost identical discussions, where the time difference between them was only one day. There was quite a significant distance between them in the discussion feed though. The scrollbar on the right resembled more of a square than a rectangle. Most people would give up long before the earlier discussion came along. I hadn't because I'm generally a fairly patient person but even so, I find myself giving up at around the 5 or 6 day mark.
Sure, the search function is there but most people who wouldn't bother looking via any other means before posting, probably wouldn't bother searching either.
I'm also really not fond the current "popularity contest" model. What is popular and what I'm interested in reading are not always one and the same. I'd love to see an option to sort by a variety of metrics, such date, number of responses, number of up votes etc.
I'll just stop now.
