Suggestion

Why not make it so after we strengthen our skills, we're told which skills we were strengthening (even if they are full)? This way, we can practice those specific skills if we found some difficulty in the strengthening session. Anyone? :)

In Turkish for English speakers, whenever I use the home page strengthen while I have specific skills that need to be strengthened, I get the "You strengthened the xxx skill." message at the end, and the specific skill turns to gold again. Sometimes this takes a couple of rounds.

I think the question was if you have a tree that is completely gold and you then go the general strengthening -- you don't get told which skills you strengthened because none of them went up a level. But you still might encounter specific difficulties that you want to target in the future.

Would there be a difference in the mechanism between completed and non-completed trees? In the scenario I mentioned, the skill don't go up a level either.

But you said that "the specific skill turns to gold again". That's what I meant with going up a level -- the strength bars going from 4 (coloured) to 5 (gold).

Yes, you are right. I just realized that, too. :-D

The existing mechanism should be finer.

That is why I like to strengthen individual skills instead of using the home page strengthen.

I remember that Memrise (another learning program like Duolingo (but not specifically on languages)) had something called "Difficult words"--that is, the words you seem to struggle with the most. You can get extra practice on those words, which I find really cool! I've always thought that was a good idea, but you just really voiced my thoughts here c;
