Any one know how to things with your followers?

    Hey everyone! I got my first follower (a.k.a. my friend in real life) and I do not know how to talk with her nor do I know how to do those challenge things. I used help but it didn't work. Anyone low how? Thx, Crystal710 :)

    There used to be a discussion feature on people's profiles, but that's been removed, which is a shame.


    It is currently impossible to chat with members one-on-one.

      What about those challenge things that you do? I heard of it on Doulingo.


      Yes I want to know too!


      While we can no longer chat one-on-one, (which I agree is a shame) the discussion feature for any given question can be used for dialogue, and if you pick one that has little activity, it is almost private. For example, if you want to continue this discussion, go to https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24917298 and then be sure to "follow" so that you get email notifications.


      Well those challenges are called xp contests, and basically what you do is post a disscusion letting everyone know you are having an xp contest. The person who either has the best score each week or for the whole contest receives (or can receive, I don't think it's mandatory) lingots as a prize. If you want to chat with your friend, you can do it on a disscusion but everyone else who sees the disscusion will see it.
