Lingots for timed practice?
A lingot is given for finishing a lesson or an untimed practice session with full hearts, but you don't get a lingot for a timed practice session finished without mistakes. Why not give a lingot for a perfect timed practice session?
Don't you get already one point per correct answer? That is already double the timeless variant.
Of course, but I meant lingots, not points. Before lingots were introduced, you got a maximum of 13 points for untimed practice and a maximum of 20 for timed practice. Then they added a lingot for a perfect untimed practice, but no lingot for a perfect timed practice. Why not?
Just a suggestion, though :-)
maybe because people would just type in one correct answer and wait for the timer to run out to get another lingot?
He is talking about earning a lingot for completing a perfect timed practice, just like people already get one for a perfect untimed practice.
Sometimes I think in English we should just start referring to people online as an "it" when we don't know their gender. Which is 99% of the time.
I don't really think I needed to be down-voted for my previous comment! And louis.vang didn't deserve a -1 for his either! Someone's taking things very badly today! :-)
I hate having downvotes on any website. It doesn't matter whether you feel like you deserve one or not, people will downvote anyways. I actually quit Reddit because of downvoting.
I intend (and try to accept) downvotes as "I disagree"s or "that's not relevant"s, not "you/your point is stupid". With them, the next person to look at the post can see "quality" posts first, rather than just seeing things in chronological order.
I always do the timed practice and never the timeless one, so I'd love to have this implemented.
Yes, especially since finishing a timed practice without making any mistakes is way more difficult than finishing a regular lesson without mistakes.
It would be great motivation. It would be either a lingot for 20/20 or a lingot for every 30 seconds saved at the finish.
I'd vote for 20/20. After all, this is not a typing competition, and giving correct answers is more important than typing them quickly.
I totally agree. At higher levels it's especially difficult to type in the answer within the time given since the sentences/phrases become longer and more complicated.
I totally agree. It would only be fair to get a lingot for answering all the questions on a timed sessions, and I would even suggest a bonus of one lingot for, let's say, every 10 extra seconds left. I only do untimed sessions when I want to read discussion threads for every task.
