  5. Streak Competition!

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?


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?


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

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


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

ok ill join then!

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.


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

Thanks for clarifying FrenchByte.

I'll try, but honestly I have no hope


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

You're out ThermopylaeHero, good try.


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

Sorry Solnfired, you're out.


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

How long will the competition last?


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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/George--Smith

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


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

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


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

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.

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

I'm in as well! I know I'm gonna fail but oh well. :)


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

Will someone at Dio reset us all to zero?


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

I'm out now :(. I was really sick yesterday, so I couldn't go on Duolingo.


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

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.


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

I'll join if it isn't too late!


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

Sounds fun, I'm in! :)

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

    Arabfish you're out, sorry.


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

    The time for joining is up, it's time for the competition to begin!


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

    Yah, I'll join. I am Raptorstrike. I followed you already. But when does it start?


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

    Already has, but you can join since we're only a day in.


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

    Start of week two, two more competitors down!


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

    Day 70! Great job guy, keep it up! Still 9 competitors remaining.


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

    3 competitors down 17ish to go!


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

    Looks like I'm out T_T


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PranavThot1

    134 streak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


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

    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.


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

    We're well into week 3, another competitor has fallen, keep it up guys!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/101Alex101

    Could you edit your original post so we can see who is still in?


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

    You are awesome (fantasztikus) Awesome!


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

    Woof is out! Good try Woof.


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

    So who is in? everyone left should have 30 or whatever the number of days was since we started about a month ago.


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

    Can I join? If not that's ok :) Besides, I think it's too late


    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.


    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/Zsuzsi97194

    100 days today! Yoohoo!


    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.


    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!


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

    Ok, you can join, but if you win the second place person will get the full prize, and you'll get a smaller prize.


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

    Zsuzsi97194 is out! 8 competitors remaining! We're 98 days in, great job!


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

    My streak disappeared at 112 days. Oh well! I had a head start so it wasn’t fair anyway.


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

    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.


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

    FelixUlvensen lost their streak! Another down, good job guys! I


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

    RaptorStrike is down! Good try!


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

    I'm out! There's still 5 of you remaining, I'll end the competition fairly soon if no one can outdo each other.


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

    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!


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

    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!


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