Duolingo Dutch Challenge: The Results!
We hosted a challenge about a week ago and this is the thread that lists the challengers' achievements and badges. Just picture this as a virtual awards ceremony. ;)
We want to thank those who joined!
We liked seeing your progress, which was inspirational to us too! :)
Our challenge was intended to last for only seven days, but we have taken your 8th day into account too. However, those who reached 7 and 8 days are equally awesome!
Now, without further ado, these are the results!

Challengers, please respond to this thread to receive a small amount of lingots as a token of our appreciation, as well. :)
Awesome! Team Dutch is easily the best group of contributors on Duolingo. Also, not to nag, but are we still getting titles?
Ooh, bedankt! The badge is awesome! Once Duo gets their picture system together, I'll put my badge on Lotso. :) Thanks for the challenge, it was great fun, and fired up my passion for Dutch again, it got me practicing with friends, and I feel more confident again. :)
Approximately when is the picture system supposed to go into effect? What is it and how is it going to work?
It's been hit or miss of late. I only mean that I will wait until it doesn't take a ridiculous amount of time to switch pictures (spent at least an hour total in the past two weeks).
Bedankt! A great motivation to push through and use those days of vacation for something productive :D
Lavinae, already looking forward to the next challenge. Carolyn, who is learning French, posted this today: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/6306899 . She is starting a group to read a book together- sounds like a great idea for those in the Dutch community who are a little more advanced. Maybe a collection of articles or a children's book? (I'm finishing my tree by Saturday, no matter what!)
cool, I wanted to participate before I switched to the reverse course, but work+holidays was just not ideal for me. maybe next time :)
Thanks! It was great to have an incentive to practice my Dutch while travelling!
(Note: the first letter of my username is a capital "i", not a lowercase "l".)
It was a really nice challenge and really helped me to refresh some skills I needed to go back to. Thank you for the opportunity!
Bedankt voor het organiseren van de wedstrijd! I now just need to figure out the best place on my picture to put the badge!
Bedankt Team Dutch!!
Maar ik ben een mislukking.. Ik had naar Universal Studios Japan gegaan..?
Nee -- Je bent geen mislukking! (Als je 'had gone' wil zeggen dan gebruik maar 'was' ipv 'had') ^^ -- "Ik was naar Universal Studios Japan gegaan." = I had gone to Universal Studios Japan.
Bedankt voor de verbetering! Ik was naar Universal Studios Japan gegaan. Ik was naar Hogsmeade Dorp gegaan.. Ik was een warm Butterbeer gedronken! ^_^
Bedankt voor de uitdaging! I've never done so much xp in one day, and having to do 250 for a week was quite a challenge, but very enjoyable :) I learned a lot a Dutch along the way, and blazed through the tree! I'm almost done now (got a section or two left), and part of me wants to continue the pace to finish the tree. (Maybe not quite as intense)
Bedankt!! Doing the challenge was very fun and I'm looking forward to the next one :D
