How come I'm not on the list?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

Oops sorry about that.


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

Thanks for putting on this contest. Contests require a good amount of time and effort!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

Sorry, it's hard to remember everyone.


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

vc120 It's fine. Don't stress yourself out.


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

You did an excellent job, Thanks!


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

Sounds like fun! I will join.


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

When will you post who is in the lead??? I got like 1003 xp today and i really wanna know how I placed!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.i.am.smol.bean.

I'm scared now. I only got 140. Not one of my finest days, but still. I've never gotten more than 310 or so in a day.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

I posted the leaders. My comment is currently at the bottom of the comments.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

The Winners: TBG_492 1st place. m-yg 2nd place. And Mindstorms in 3rd place. Congratulations everybody!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

Any prohibitions on how people can earn the XP?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

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


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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

Thanks for the suggestion.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

Today's leaders: TBG_492: 3699 XP, m-yg: 1839 XP, schultzten: 1210 XP.(Not current.)

    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:)


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


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

    A life outside of duolingo that is. _


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


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

    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.


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

    Thanks!! I may try that out.


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

    May I ask why the contest can't start until tomorrow?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

    So it can gain more members first.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

    The contest has begun!

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LION-OF-JUDAH
