so I had a deal with another user regarding points and lingots

I got > 10,000 points this month so I'm about to hit some big lingot stacks (the only point of this thread is so that they can be transferred, sorry!)

So what are people actually doing with lingots?

I've already got all the bonus skills available so now I only use them for streak freeze...

Since I have around 25,000 lingots, I sponsor the lingots for stories, raise the lingot prizes in XP Competitions, and give them to interesting posts. Have a 100 lingots :)

How do you give so many away at one time? Duolingo only lets me give them away one by one?

If you check out my profile, you will find out that I have leveled to 25 on Spanish hundreds of times. It is a bug with duo. I like the lingots, though :)

I would give them to people who post actually interesting and helpful posts on discussion, such as news articles about languages or guides on certain aspects of languages.

I am having fun giving them away! But here is my official suggestion to Duolingo. Find a way for corporate or such sponsors to let us give our Lingots to charities. I'm a sure it could be done. You might need another volunteer or two. I enjoy having some coin to throw around in this realm. ;-) More lingots for you!

Give them to some one who has done a particularly good translation of something?

I'm looking around, but, sadly, I don't see anything yet. I'll keep you posted if I figure it out.

thank you :) I've just realised that you can give lingots to people who actually post the articles etc. so that's an option

I wish duolingo provided an option to give lingots to friends or to anyone without leaving a post. like others, I give lingots when I see a particular post that I like, either I find it helpful or humorous. Congratulations on your accomplishment!
