Any prohibitions on how people can earn the XP?

December 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/vc120

You can only get XP though lessons and timed practice right?

December 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Usagiboy7

Nah, there are other ways. But, they benefit those who aren't actually learning anything new. So, if you want to motivate the learners I always recommend specifically stating those rules in the OP. :)

    I din't know that there would be such high competition, I don't think I'v every gotten above 1200 xp a day.(of course I am doing it on the computer so I don't get the advantage that the phone does:)

    December 7, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Robert-4-Christ

    I think am going to retire(quit) from the competition, thanks for hosting it anyway! (I just have things to do in a day besides duolingo, a.k.a. I have a life :)

    December 7, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Robert-4-Christ

    A life outside of duolingo that is. _

    December 7, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Chloespragg

    Yeah I'm gonna quit too. I love Spanish but not for several hours a day. I have time to get a lot of points, but I'm just not that competitive. A fun idea, nonetheless.

    December 8, 2017

    Chloespragg,

    You might enjoy the Bunny Challenge. It's not a competition. It's designed so people choose a an XP goal for themselves to meet every day for a week. It started Sunday. But, people are allowed to start at any time. I also often run it a second week in the same discussion post. It goes up once a month and I've been running it for a couple of years now. People seem to really like it. ^_^

    Vc120, I hope you don't mind me hopping in to offer them a link here? I thought they might like to try an alternative experience.

    December 8, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Chloespragg

    Thanks!! I may try that out.

    December 8, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/vc120

    I don't mind.

    December 8, 2017
