Also my friend was looking over my shoulder and told me to go to shop. Then, she saw the flirting bonus:

Her: DO YOU HAVE THE LINGOTS!?!?!??!
Me: What the heck lady, yes I do.
Her: BUY ITTTTT!!!
Me: Ok, geez person.

So it was half a demand from my (mostly) demonic friend, and half just curiosity.

In a majority Muslim country, I wonder, is flirting even a thing?

Facing Muslim traditionalists, some even don't agree with having a boyfriend/girlfriend, and supported marriage without dating.

However, in the younger generation which is increasingly liberal, flirting is a thing. You will be able to see young people across Indonesia dating with their couples. Except Aceh, though, which canes heterosexual couples that is not married.

@carbsrule probably not! If you did ( and you were female) your father would have to kill you for the honor of the family! i.e honor killing! So I am guessing not.

nonono we dont do those things here, it's okay to do some flirting as long as you avoid the religious conservatives. we very rarely flirt with strangers though.

@Vellistasea, you may not do them, but there are many Islamists that do, the point is, that in some middle eastern countries flirting is a punishable offense

yeah, as this question points more on the indonesians i said we dont do those, at least the majority of us. i would agree that a lot of middle eastern and asian societies did something similar though, pretty sad

Because they haven't added the bonus lessons to any new courses since they first introduced them as part of the then new lingot store several years ago for the courses that currently have them. It seems they have no plans to add them to newer courses. I know the Swedish team created bonus lessons for the Swedish course a while back and submitted them, but they were never added. So I suspect no one else bothers to even try to make them for other courses now.

Damn, that really sucks :(

Yet they can make a new (crappy) update and make new languages, sad really.

7 Courses still in beta and 16 courses left for dead in the incubator. I guess my course suggestion will never be made eather, how nice.
