I think they removed the Christmas skill from the store. If so, I don't understand why it's still appearing in the trees of people who haven't already bought it.

Try moving this to the troubleshooting forum.

Click on the lingots icon and near the bottom you should see 'unlock idioms' or whatever for 25 lingots. It will only show the ones available for you based on which level you're at on the tree.

How? In the right hand side I have 3 icons: lingots,words learned and streak. No"unlock idioms". When I click on lingots icon nothing happens.

Did you already buy one extra skill? The two extra skills show up at TWO boxes in the Lingot menu, not just one. It confused me too.

I got the sense that this was the first one jotanulo unlocked, which means it would be the Christmas skill, which for me no longer shows up in the store as equipped (or at all). I have three bonus skills in my tree, which two are you referring to?

No, I am on the 8th level, this is the would be the next box to me and I cannot unlock. I may go further without unlocking it. It is not saying what kind of skill, just a yellow star.

See the lingot at the top of the screen? The one where it tells you how many Lingots you have? Click on that icon and it takes you to the Lingot page, where you can buy things for lingots.

You mean it takes me to the Lingot store?

Yes. You should see one option to buy the Idioms skill and a different option to buy the Flirting skill. I expected a single option, not two, so I was looking at the grayed-out box for Idioms and never seeing the box for Flirting. That's why I thought I couldn't purchase the bonus skill, anyway. Let me know if that works.
