Short version: I’m going to be letting Kinja Duolingo go at the end of the year.

Longer version: Between grad school, a new job, and an assortment of other things, I haven’t been doing Duolingo myself for quite some time, and as evidenced by the fact that I missed the last two weekly leaderboards, remembering to do the leaderboard every week is also a challenge.

If anyone is interested in taking over in 2017, I’m happy to give you my advice on the best way to pull the rankings. Either way, next week will probably be the last week I post a leaderboard. (Week 52 is Christmas, so I’ll put one up if I remember but the chances are slim, as I may not even have my computer with me.)

Kudos to everyone who has stuck with it all year—or longer!—and to everyone who has taken part at one point or another, even if you haven’t been active the whole time.
