I just received a notification that said this:

"You received 5 lingots for helping to translate Renaissance carolingienne."

Is this a new thing? It's the first time this has happened to me.

"Translate or edit a sentence in an Immersion document, and receive 1/4 lingot per word once your translation receives at least 3 upvotes" https://www.duolingo.com/show_store

It's a well hidden feature, I have just received a couple of lingots for the same thing and it puzzled me.

This is a surprise to me. I just re-checked my Lingot store - it isn't available to me yet. Must be a test thing.

Me neither. Although, you will be rolling in the lingots if it is rolled out to everyone :)
(are you at least getting the lingots for upvotes of an uploaded document?)

Yes, for uploads :) If they had started this earlier, I'd be the lingot queen, since I had already had over 600 uploads that were completed prior to this feature! LOL - Since I haven't kept track of total uploads (just the fully completed ones), I don't have a count for total uploads that I've done!

Lyarra, you can still be the Recipe Queen! I've actually made a couple of the recipes you've uploaded over the last few months. :)

I think this might be a new feature that they are testing in different ways. Mine, when I scroll to the bottom of the store, says "Translate or edit a sentence in an Immersion document, and receive 1 lingot if your translation is approved by the community. Upload a document to Immersion, and receive 1 lingot every time someone upvotes your document."

I was trying to search the forums to learn why I earned a lingot for immersion this morning, and I would swear this wasn't there before...

While I like it, it is currently kind of confusing to get XP points and coins (what are they good for, anyway?) and lingots for immersion. I hate to say it but I kind of think the lingots are maybe too easy to earn via immersion. Not sure yet.
