XP Contest! (Ended)
This XP Contest will start on Wednesday December 6th and go until Saturday December 9th. The goal is to gather as many XP as possible! There is NO fee! The prizes are: 1st place 100 Lingots. 2nd place 70 Lingots. 3rd place 50 Lingots. Just say in the comments if you are joining. I will follow all of the contestants so that I can keep track of the XP. Every day I will announce who is in the lead. Have fun! (Please up vote) Lingot donations may increase prizes! All participants will receive 1 Lingot! I need at least 2 participants to do this contest.
This sounds like so much fun, and I would be delighted to join you all in this learning experience :)
Thanks for putting on this contest. Contests require a good amount of time and effort!
When will you post who is in the lead??? I got like 1003 xp today and i really wanna know how I placed!!
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.
The Winners: TBG_492 1st place. m-yg 2nd place. And Mindstorms in 3rd place. Congratulations everybody!
Today's leaders: TBG_492: 3699 XP, m-yg: 1839 XP, schultzten: 1210 XP.(Not current.)
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'll join! Thanks very much! I'm have no chance though.(>人<)(>人<)(>人<)(>人<)
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:)
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 :)
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.
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.
