Stickers for Lingots

As of right now, it seems there aren't many things to do with lingots.

I would like to suggest adding the ability to buy stickers with lingots. They could be displayed on your profile, and/or by your name when you post in discussions. Some stickers could be animals, flags (rectangular and stylized, not to be confused with the languages you're learning), maybe even hats or food, etc...

Does anyone else think this would be a cool feature to have? Let me know your thoughts~ :3

The idea of the images next to people's names is to provide information about them as a language learner and a Duolingo user. Adding random pictures would clutter the site and obscure that information. Perhaps the stickers could go somewhere else?

Yep, that's why I said "and/or" on your profile :)

Yes. I deleted it because it went off-topic and involved arguing about something not related to the discussion, of which I was responsible as well. I decided a newer and cleaner discussion would be best, since the last one only had a few posts anyway :). I actually was not the one to downvote your comment and am a little surprised/confused as to why it was. Even the last topic had random downvotes of harmless comments.

I'm not so sure about that last part. As far as I know, it did not have "random downvotes of harmless comments"

Ok, I wasn't trying to be rude, actually, I new it was reposted, I just asked if it was because I couldn't find the last one :) I guess it doesn't really matter if you repost it as long as you delete the last one, but I don't know.

The "stickers" would be like tiny online pictures. Like this for example - you could buy it for so many lingots and have it displayed by your name or on your profile. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTgTc5McgF1v0NJEwhjoIZbXb5JTWbcYhz7bENTUU7M5lJAHH29TA

Meh. I don't quite understand the need to buy pixels in different shapes and sizes and colors. I don't like to spend "money" on things that aren't tangible, and this certainly isn't.

But neither are lingots. You'd be spending virtual money for some sort of virtual commodity. Sure, you could argue that there's no need for OP's idea technically, but then you could also argue that there's no need for lingots in the first place either. The point being that if they're going to create a virtual currency, they should give you something to spend it on.
Lingots also aren't "money" in any real sense. With no monetary value, you wouldn't be able to get anything tangible with them anyway.

I guess I don't see the point for cosmetic anything, especially here. But then I'm not likely young enough to be the target age group. And the original poster wanted opinions, and I'm happy to make sure that the discussion doesn't wind up being an echo chamber.

I guess I can agree in that regard. I'm indifferent myself but you know, lol. I guess we were both doing some devil's advocating.

Yes! Maybe your could import your own design and pay extra lingots in order to use your own!
