Things I want to buy with Lingots right now.

  1. A better language switcher. The script that's floating around doesn't work on my Macbook with Safari. I want the drop down menu to basically be a table. Eventually I'd love to try and learn the trees that go between all the languages that I learn. Not feasible to do daily unless I can switch quicker.

  2. Some kind of border for my language flags indicating that I've finished a tree (for the record, I haven't finished any tree... yet). This doesn't need to be automatic, I don't mind basically earning the right to buy this with Lingots.

  3. "Vs" games... basically I can challenge friends who follow me to a "head to head". We pick a topic and a language and Duo records who can build up the most experience in that topic in that language (to whatever language) in the space of 10/30/60 mins or whatever.

  4. Customisations for my Duo.

  5. Lesson strength bars. I want these back—why not sell them to me for Lingots?

  6. More accurate strength bars. Right now by German and Spanish trees are golden. However, I have some idea that there's much more weak words in my Spanish tree. I'd love to be able to buy a more accurate strength bar, so that I could work out which tree it would be most effective to put a bit more practice into with general practice.

  7. More unlockable modules. Perhaps unlockable mini-trees. Perhaps full size sequel trees I can unlock.

What do you want to buy with Lingots?

Thanks. Yes. And there's some features that might not want to be implemented for everyone, which then makes sense to sell them to us with lingots. I think that many users who only have two or so languages don't want or need a complicated language switcher. But I do... so let me buy it!

True, some people like the changes the Duolingo has slowing been putting in as an A/B test.

Like taking away streak rewards and such. Many people are not happy about that. I can't say I'm thrilled either, I am in the no rewards group :/

Oh, yeah, I knew about those. I'm in the no rewards group too. Had a streak of about 70 or so, then really busy Saturday and didn't get my lessons done by midnight! My own fault for putting 50xp per day as the streak requirement.

Yeah, I have mine set to 10, just in case, but I usually do a few hundred a day :P
