Wow, thanks so much!! This should be an example post for all newcomers.


Will you be adding these to duolingo.fandom.com? It's great to have them! Mòran Taing!


I would do, but the duolingo wikia admin said it's better not to, so I've avoided it for now: https://duolingo.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:10174.

Also, it would be a bit hypocritical of me: https://duolingo.fandom.com/wiki/Message_Wall:AndyC37
