I recommend not letting people "test out" of lessons. Otherwise, it's not about encouraging them to study. It's about them challenging a language they already know enough of to swoop in and snag the prize before people who are still trying to study hard to learn a language they aren't familiar with.

I'll join, but how do you know when someone gets 300 Xp?

November 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Lagertha27

Good question! just tell me when you get 300xp. But if you have let's say for instance like 245xp adn then the competition starts. Then you have to get to 545xp you see what I mean?

Actually, a good way is to just follow your contestants (and unfollow them when the contest ends if you want) because it's way too easy for someone to lie about how much XP they've got.

Thank you! Glad to lend you some lingots!

November 5, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Lagertha27

Yeah Once again thank you so much for doing that!:) You didn't have to but you did it anyway. You gave me lingots like 2 seconds after I made the post about me losing lingots. Even though I wasn't expecting anyone to give me some. I just wanted to let the mods know. Now I know this sounds geeky and all but I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciated what you did. Thanks!
