Duolingo XP battle
Hello and welcome to XP Battle! This is a small contest I have set up for fellow Duolingo-ers. The aim of the contest is to earn as much XP as possible in December 2017.
This November, earn as much XP as possible. I will follow you so I can track your XP. If you want to enter, please do so by commenting. The contest starts on 1st November 2017. I will announce the winner on 1st December 2017. I will give lingots to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Please follow this discussion to stay up to date. Please check in every day, and don't cheat by repeatedly re-doing an activity.
1st place 60 lingots, 2nd place 50 lingots, 3rd place 30 lingots, 4th place 20 lingots. Please note date or prizes may be increased if there are lots of contestants. GOOD LUCK!
heres some facts to keep you intertained.
DID YOU KNOW...
that 97 percent of the worlds water is undrinkable?(well it is drinkable,but I highly reccommend not to drink it.)
that the words Silent and Listen have the exact same letters and no difference?
that the average temperature on jupiter is -234 F?
that in lots of places they say black cats are bad luck but in Japan its supossed to be good luck?
that the pop-up toaster was invented in 1919?
that the average temperature on Mars is -55 celcius?
that they say Ford Mustangs were invented in 1965 but some that i have seen have been 1964.5 so that means that it was made in the middle of 1964
that Garfield hates Mondays?
that the average temperature on venus is 864 F?
that when Alfa Romeo(the car brand) was in the 1920's it was just called i think (sorry i kinda forgot) Romeo or just Alfa? Sorry for forgetting.
here are some facts to keep you intertained.
I think so, since you have the same number as Jayden347521. Fortunately I was already following you with my second account, CarlosPolyglot, because I followed everybody that wrote in this thread just in case.
So now I have only one X: PurfectsBestie. However now IMO it doesn't matter very much. The most important thing is:
Where is HeyGuysMeHere???
Also, this user has been comment spamming other people's posts - 38 times in fact.
Now 59 spam comments and counting.
Just copy-paste 24745635 into the forum search box to see what the OP is doing.
Edit: Now a search only yields four results, and if you go to each post, there is no comment there. So I assume either the OP, or a mod, has cleaned things up, and the search index is catching up.
- It's start date is almost 2 months from now. People who join and donate lingots are likely to forget this exists because they'll join other contests. So, it's a high risk investment. It makes it easy for unscrupulous hosts to collect lingots and not give them out.
XP contests have the best chance of floating (not getting down voted) if:
1. their start dates are within 1 week
2. the rules are clearly laid out (ie. you can only earn XP by doing this or that but not this other thing)
3. the directions are clearly laid out (ie check in each day by doing such and such)
4. the host doesn't ask for lingot donations
5. the host is well-known (so they are less likely to steal any donated lingots because they want to stay friends with people.)

From time to time I've seen new XP contests in the forum, but I'm sorry to say that I haven't seen anything new from HeyGuysMeHere. You could join somewhere else meanwhile, or wait until I get over 10,000 lingots (currently 2815), then maybe I'll organize something to give away a bunch of them!! :D :D
I have a scratch account. This project tells you how many lingots I'm earning from my streak. https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/180046286/#player
After midnight in Spain (11 hours ago), these are the rankings I had before going to bed. However, take into account that there's a difference with Duolingo's time (so maybe people in the US had between 5-9 hours more to increase their XPs until the last minute), and OTOH I included all the people that posted here (so a few of them wasn't actually competing in the XP contest, because they either quit or hadn't entered the contest).

These are the contestants that increased their XPs more than 50 XPs between the moment I took the rankings and right now (I know it because of the Leaderboard of This week). So I think there was no movement in the TOP-10 last night during the last hours of the contest:
- Lau +887 XP
- Marcus +110 XP
- Felix +110 XP
- fergus +80 XP
