You are supposed to put them on shelves (bookcases to be purchased from your local store) and dust them off at least once a week!!-) Seriously, the XPs, lingots, levels and fluency scores look like incentives/carrots for encouraging people to come back for more... Some of them do attempt to provide some kind of measure for how well one is doing in a specific language.

I have 100 lingots, I have no idea how I got them, but they are pretty useless unless you want extra courses on a language
