    I am currently focusing on the French tree, but competition-wise, I've been known to throw in a bit of Spanish immersion or strengthening that makes the XP go up quickly. But I'm game. I'll warn you I am crazy though!


    I've got my eyes on you, dude.

      Oh mon dieu!


      Your number of languages registered for vouches a little for your craziness :O c'est incroyable! you. must. be destroyed. we will not be forced into living under your polyglot rule.


      I second that, i vow to dethrone you asap!

        I sense a bit of hostility... I LOVE IT!! Mwahahaha (evil laugh) I will rule over duolingo with an iron fist!!

        Don't forget the safeword http://www.scoopy.com/eurotrip.jpg


        I accept the challenge!


        Yaaay, i dare you to keep up with me!


        YES. I am ready!


        I accept your challenge :)


        I am ready to be beatin but i will still be there


        Me too! Count me in!


        Sure I'm in!


        I'll join also.


        I'll join in.


        sounds cool, I'm in


        Sorry, but I must leave the competition, for I'm dropping French in order to learn Ukrainian. It's what I've really been waiting for. Slavic cultures and languages just fascinate me.


        It sounds fun. Count me in! :D


        Great idea. I`d love to join to.

        Have a lingot for your plan (:


        Awesome! Thanks you and congrats on the 59 day streak


        Hi michellan, It sounds good :) I'd like to get in :)


        Allright you're in and good luck :)


        Thank you michellan I also wish you good luck and nice study: ). hehe, I am on duolingo for 2 years.I think you will reach my level earlier :) by the way I think it would be better if you count the weekly Leaderboard than alltime Leaderboard.....:)


        edit: nvm looking at your xp it should probably be you wishing me luck....


        All right here's a temporary scoreboard to kick things off. Should i keep updating it once a week or more frequently? And would you guys prefer looking at the french tree's xp exclusively or at the overall xp?

        Can't wait to see my name in the top three. Also let me know if I left you out/you want to be on the scoreboard!


        Hey, i prefer using the weekly french tree scoreboard, then maybe at the end of a month we can post the overall scoreboard - don't you agree? The overall is a bit daunting with the gaps present between those that started long before us, with the weekly we're competing from the same starting line which encourages the competition.


        I think the score is cumulative of points earned from all languages like dandydaddy alluded to in his post above.


        ah yes right right - okee so we're competing with our weekly effort in studying regardless of languages.


        Good point haha, the weekly ones it is then (: Ill edit the board


        also :)! maybe if it's possible it's better to paste the score updates into the first original post somewhere, and you can keep re-editing only that post so the scores are easily visible to everyone at the top, if not i guess we can keep pasting it in comments as we keep going.


        youre full of good ideas... im impressed haha


        ooh wawawiwwa I love competition ! I'm in


        Count me in too please.


        Scoreboard has been updated!


        Thanks for the update! Hey, I think I climbed a few ranks :-)


        well done :) !


        I'm 8th! Yoh I have to admit you made me work for it, also lucky in the last hours I was waiting at a restaurant for a friend that was late, and I managed to get a lot of lessons done in those minutes! I was aiming on surpassing yourself, Rosieposie and AaronTupaz. Let's see how the next week goes! The tree is getting harder :O too. For now, Goodnight from this side, fellow enemy :) x


        Merci for the update!


        awww you got so close, think you can be first next week?

        I know I beat last week's champion Paheer_Maha and the few from here whom I am following. Did you have a chance to gather the XPs before the reset for an update?

        Also, Many congrats iffypant, all glory is yours, we salute you. raises iffypant flag


        Hi Herah,

        Sorry, when I looked on your xp-board , there was 0.

        But last week you had 281xp and know 1097xp so I would say 816xp. Is it ok for you ?


        Ah! Right, so then it was a score of 806xp :) (- 10xp from this week). Thank you!

        Holy crap i came second!!! At least on this board, I believe there are quite a few members missing on it yet. So temporarily i can rejoice at 2nd place! happy dance



        hahaha........ I am very sorry.I made a big mistake. your xp point is from 7.3. till now and the others xp point are only from yesterday till now........:).


        lol...............Think positiv, now you will be more motivatet to do execises, like the german proverb" wer einmal Blut leckt der will mehr".... means " who taste the blood, he will more ..........:.;)

        Shell we create a new discussion post. because I do not know, If michellan will come back.


        Hi shaundeanesh, Thx you. The score board is wrong, I havn't got all scores from last week


        Let's wait this week for her, but keep an eye on the board ourselves on sunday, if she doesn't return by then we can put the updated on a new discussion board.

        Ha YEAH I HAVE TASTED BLOOD i can assure you i am keen to fight like Chengis himself!


        I remember you had ~5,100+ xp, and I had ~5,800+. And we've determined that herah had around 806. The rest, I don't know.


        Hi Iffypant, your right I forgot the numbers but I only know that you won this week. :). therefore I wrote it. We will note this next week either here or in a new discussion board.
