You can take them out occasionally and blow the dust off.

You reward people with DL friendly comments. You give them away freely....like good ol' Bob Cratchit. :) Enjoy another Lingot.

You can give them to posts in the forum that you find helpful. Otherwise, no: They don't collect dust, fortunately. I have a few of them, and they are as sparkling as ever :-)

I find they give you bragging rights. "I have 100!" "Well I have 101, take that!" And so forth.

Well Josie as it turns out, there is a valid use of lingots. I am saving up my lingots so that I may take over the world someday. As I am not yet in charge I assume I do not yet have enough lingots. So send me all your lingots and I'll see to it you're well treated. ;P

Unfortunately, there's not much you can buy in the store with them to begin with. You could, however, find a comment that you think is useful and give them to the poster.

You can celebrate people who have reached certain milestones like streaks or the completion of a language tree. If you don't want to use them that way you can just brag about it to your friends. (but not too much ;) And no, They don't collect dust. Hope this helped!

You could bring them down to your local lingot exchange and trade them in for some cool goodies. I have allready traded in some of mine for a brand new ride on lawnmower. I am now saving for a mountain bike.

Instead of counting sheep when you can't sleep, try counting lingots.
Or just be like a Count and count the lingots.
