Babies and Toddlers

I have bought Flirting, Idioms, and Christmas. There are no more spaces left to have an extra Lingot-bought skill. Today, I saw Babies and Toddlers and bought it. Now it isn't showing up on my skill tree anywhere but did use my lingots. Help!

Babies and Toddlers? I didn't know that was a thing.

EDIT: Yes! It is! I think it's because you have all three slots taken up. But it's a bit pointless if there are too many bonus skills. I don't think you should have to choose which ones you learn.

Even stranger, in German, I found what clearly looked like a Norwegian bonus skill for Nynorsk. When I switched to Norwegian, it wasn't there. I think there are some general hiccoughs going on before this works.

Ah, is there any way to remove one? I have no interest in flirting, but I would like to get this.

That's messed up. Is there any way you can flag this issue, to let the Duolingo staff know?

It must be one of those trial things..........or maybe it doesn't show in my "store" because I already bought the other 3 bonus slots

Probably because you didn't have a slot open for it. I don't know how to open a slot for it. In the lingot store, does it say that it is equipped, or what?

It said I had a slot open so I thought maybe I had earned one. I bought it and it says equipped, but its no where on my tree.

Did they remove it? Do you know if they will be bringing it back?

March 25, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mii-riam

It seems like they removed it, yes. I don't know when/if it will be brought back. Maybe they're fixing the mistake and to bring it back then.
