500 members of the GOHOF!

The Golden Owl Hall of Fame began in August 2014, and since then, 500 (and 2 more) members have placed their name on the list next to their coveted golden owls.

In seven months, 978 Golden Owls have accumulated on the list, with the spread below:

Of course, I could not have maintained this list without the help of other users, so a huge thank you to writchie4, Jeque, AlmostExMonoglot, and jitengore and xeno78 for listing the Golden Owl Hall of Fame in their HOFs as well.

If you want to add your name to the GOHOF, please post here.

*And I finally redid the owl pictures and resized them, so no more mis-matched trophy lines, everyone. :)

    I'm surprised more people don't have the English owl.

    This data is mostly from the English forums, so that's undercoverage bias I choose to ignore (some coming from Spanish speakers). There's no way I could gather data from all sides of Duolingo. :)

    Does "golden owl" mean that someone is gold in all skills in one language?

    writchie4, Jeque, and AlmostExMonoglot have Hall of Fames?

    March 16, 2015

    I had that same thought when I first read it. "Cool, I have a HOF!" The extra "and" before jitengore was supposed to delineate the simple helpers from the other hall of fame owners.

    Now that you mention it though, I wouldn't mind having one. It'd be super-exclusive though. Invite only, if you have to ask, you're not eligible :)

    Oh, haha, my bad. >.< I guess I read it too fast.

    What type of Hall of Fame would it be? (If you had one) ;)

    A banquet hall of fame. Guests could come and fawn over the people who have been accepted and enjoy a nice meal at the same time.

    ^^ I don't have to ask. :P

    Nope, they helped with this actual Hall of Fame, that's what I was saying. Wade gets it at least. :P
