The rules:

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.

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.

October 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EllaMarisol

I would have thought that Garfield loves Mondays because that's when John has to leave the house.

October 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/snufflespebbles

no. he hates mondays because that mondays just give him bad luck.

October 31, 2017

November 9, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Fergus138287

You are still in 7th. OmegaGMaster is beating you now, but now you are beating CarlosLM. Be careful, sharon822547 is right behind you!

There are 2 contestants I can't find: PurfectsBestie and Jayden347521. Does somebody know anything about them? If I try to see their profiles, I get a 404 error :-(

November 12, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jbariteau

Who me?

November 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/CarlosLM.

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???

November 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EllaMarisol

How come people are voting this down?

October 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/jimnicholson

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.

October 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ForeverLonely.

I'm not spamming comments anymore, thanks.

October 13, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Fergus138287

what does spamming mean?

October 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ForeverLonely.

it means repeatedly posting comments, so in my case putting a link to XP Battle on every discussion I could find.

October 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/CorBAN37

I did so and there is 57 results. Just saying. Either way, that's a LOT of wasted spam.

October 16, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Woof.

Two reasons:

1: Because some people don't like XP contests.

2: Some people downvote everything without even looking at it, or if they do, they don't care.

October 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Usagiboy7
  1. 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.)

October 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ForeverLonely.

Cheers. I'll move the contest to November, and ask people to not grind by repeatedly re-doing an activity. I'll keep the information in mind for future contests.

October 7, 2017

I don't think that's true.

October 8, 2017

Hey, I would like to join in on the fun. Are you only allowed to do one language or can it be multiple?

October 9, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ForeverLonely.

Sure. You can do multiple languages, as long as you don't keep on strengthening skills in a grind.

October 9, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Escarah

But what if we need to strengthen our skills so that we won't lose stuff?

October 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ForeverLonely.

I meant that you can strengthen, just don't repeatedly strengthen when you don't need to.

October 15, 2017

    My streak will be 74 days by December. That will have earned me 25 lingots for the streak, and an extra 5 lingots a week from streak betting and 2 lingots a skill, not to mention more lingots from levelling up languages. I just need to keep this streak going.

    October 21, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Fergus138287

    question. are you going to be in the contest too? or are you going to be just handing the lingt prizes out? im just wondering.

    October 22, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/HeyGuysSec

    I'm just handing out the lingots. I have 130 lingots on my main account, and I don't think I'd be in the top 3. Besides, people might label me as a skinflint if I'm on the leaderboard (I'd save 50 lingots for being in 1st place.

    October 22, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/HeyGuysSec

    Also, I wrote this on my second account. Just sayin'.

    December 1, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/CarlosLM.

    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).

    1. 22399 XP Lau (Lau-GP)
    2. 15189 XP ⒡⒠⒧⒤⒳ (FelixUlvensen)
    3. 6568 XP Marcus (RomainRoberts)
    4. 5310 XP Carlos, the Tree Conqueror (CarlosLM.)
    5. 4900 XP JaEesti (Jaesti2)
    6. 4270 XP Sebastian (sebastians.s)
    7. 3714 XP Sharon
    8. 2833 XP fergus138287
    9. 2599 XP K <sub>INFJ-T</sub> (WaterPolyglot)
    10. 2280 XP Gary
    11. 2023 XP カテリマリエ (Woof.)
    12. 1930 XP OmegaGmaster
    13. 1893 XP Jayden
    14. 1640 XP Sydney A. Jenkins
    15. 1216 XP Jim Nicholson
    16. 917 XP Language Seeker
    17. 698 XP Usagi
    18. 630 XP Adeline
    19. 595 XP CorBAN!
    20. 390 XP cluney
    21. 390 XP HeyGuys' Second Account
    22. 340 XP pollyperkin
    23. 194 XP Sapphire Love
    24. 169 XP Ella

    By the way, I wanted to add a curiosity: the top-5 on Nov. 15 was exactly the same that the final top-5 and then we had roughly half of the XPs than now:

    1. Lau-GP (11881)
    2. FelixUlvensen (8943)
    3. RomainRoberts (3578)
    4. CarlosLM. (2678)
    5. JaEesti (2670)

    Wait is the XP. contest over?

    [deactivated user]

      Yeah.

      December 3, 2017

      https://www.duolingo.com/CarlosLM.

      OP changed the contest from December to November because of a moderator suggestions (Usagi)

      December 4, 2017

      https://www.duolingo.com/CarlosLM.

      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

      and i dont know how i got 80 xp because i like to do 50 xp a day.

      December 3, 2017

      https://www.duolingo.com/CarlosLM.

      Your average was 94 XP a day in November, so doing 80 XP the last night was normal.
