That is information only staff has access to. The only thing visible to non-staff is how many people signed up for the course: https://www.duolingo.com/course/nl-NL/en/Learn-Dutch-Online (4.75 million)

Oh, okay. I was curious because there are not many posts under the Dutch forum.

Maybe people like to use the Dutch Duolingo Facebook instead of this forum?

I am following the Dutch course. I put it that way because I am surprised to see how important it has become to me to get the various points awarded. No idea why, especially since I neither know what they are called nor why I am getting them. When I was in the Netherlands recently I found that it was interesting to know a few words. Am I really learning Dutch? What do you have to do to be classed as learning a language? And just what is a lingot? Oh, and when I am invited to watch games, what on Earth are they all about?

Hoi tomharney, you ask what is a lingot. Maybe this explaination will help you. What is a lingot? A lingot [ling-guht] is the Duolingo virtual currency. The more you learn on Duolingo, the more lingots you'll receive and be able to use in the store! They can be earned through:

Leveling up Earn 1 lingot Finishing a skill Earn 2 lingots for finishing a new skill 10 day streaks Earn 1 lingot for every 10 days on a streak (1 for 10, 2 for 20, etc) Note: Lingots are not awarded when you use a tree shortcut to level up or finish a skill.
