Streak Competition!

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!

Can you have an existing streak?

November 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Awesome737

Yep!

November 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/idkhbtfm

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?

November 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Awesome737

It's who can keep the longest streak, not including the one they have now. Good question!

TO ALL:

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.

How long will the competition last?

November 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Awesome737

It depends on who can maintain a streak the longest, if it goes too long I'll award lingots to the winners.

November 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AsiyahLater123

Ok thanks!

What if you continue using Duo for longer than the person who is supposed to give the lingots?

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Awesome737

I'll still be on Duolingo even if I lose, don't worry about it.

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.

    December 23, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Awesome737

    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.

    January 10, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zsuzsi97194

    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?

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Awesome737

    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.

    January 27, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zsuzsi97194

    It may have been more fair to start everyone at 0 the day the competition started, but if it's keeping people going, hooray!
