Anyone can join our competition, the person who has the longest streak wins. The winner will get 100 lingots. (If it's a tie I'll split it between you.) You can use a streak freeze twice. (Unless you're on vacation, or someplace without WiFi. Just tell me first, please.) If you have a streak today counts as day one. Being in a streak competition is a lot of fun, it also makes sure you practice daily. Good luck!
So is the contest who has the longest streak, including what they had before the contest started, or who can keep up a streak for the longest, not including what they had before?
It's who can keep the longest streak, not including the one they have now. Good question!
Today is DAY ONE. If you don't practice today you automatically have the shortest streak, and starting a new one will be hard, since others will be a day ahead at least.
(I'm not in)
Up-vote to bring to the top.
It depends on who can maintain a streak the longest, if it goes too long I'll award lingots to the winners.
What if you continue using Duo for longer than the person who is supposed to give the lingots?
Remaining Competitors: idkhbtfm, Awesome737, George--Smith, Woof., Joseph437, Zsuzsi97194, CindyALand, Danielle_Evans, FelixUlvensen, Hetaurus, Yoreni4, VasanthaKa1. There are 12 competitors remaining! Sorry, I haven't been giving many updates, I've had a lot of homework recently.
My friend JaredGoat was in the competition when it started, but his posts are gone and he can't post for now. Anyway he hasn't lost his streak so he told me to say this.
Remaining Competitors: Awesome737, George--Smith, Zsuzsi97194, CindyALand, Danielle_Evans, FelixUlvensen, Hetaurus, Yoreni4, and last but not least, Raptorstrike827. 3 more competitors down, 9 remaining! Good job guys! Sorry about this post being so late.
I had to travel to see my granddaughter who broke her elbow. Took all day and couldn’t get on line but I had lingots to spare to get my streak back, so earn those lingots. There isn’t much we can do with them.
I'll join! ٩(◕‿◕｡)۶
If it isn't too late, i'll join! (I'll probably fail though, I'm new to Duolingo) :)
Yah, I'll join. I am Raptorstrike. I followed you already. But when does it start?
Shouldn’t we have started this with day 1 when the competition started? I have 32 but only 7 here since we started last week.
So who is in? everyone left should have 30 or whatever the number of days was since we started about a month ago.
Sorry for taking so long to reply. You can join but if you win you won't get as many lingots. I would give the full amount to the second place person since they've been in the competition longer.
how can we communicate on DUO? what's the point of following people if you can't communicate? Is it just here in the odd languages or everywhere?
Well done! No competitors have lost their streak for weeks. I may stop the competition at day 100 (we're on day 82 now), but we'll see.
It may have been more fair to start everyone at 0 the day the competition started, but if it's keeping people going, hooray!
Ok, you can join, but if you win the second place person will get the full prize, and you'll get a smaller prize.
Zsuzsi97194 is out! 8 competitors remaining! We're 98 days in, great job!
My streak disappeared at 112 days. Oh well! I had a head start so it wasn’t fair anyway.
We're 103 days in. There are only seven competitors remaining: VasanthaKa1, CindyALand, FelixUlvensen, Hetaurus, Yoreni4, Raptorstrike827, and myself! Two more competitors lost their streaks recently. Sorry VasanthaKa1, I forgot to include you a month ago in the last update.
I'm out! There's still 5 of you remaining, I'll end the competition fairly soon if no one can outdo each other.
Good Job Guys, you're doing amazing! There are still many of you in, next time I check in it's lingot time! Keep working hard!
I'm sorry I haven't been active for awhile, it's time to reward the winners! CindyALand, Danielle_Evans, and Hetaurus, congrats! You'll each get 75 lingots! Thank you guys so much for playing!
