Just lost 25 lingots...

I wanted to buy the certificate and did so. However, I wanted to take the test later, but remembering previous discussions where they had lost the certificate by pressing 'cancel' I did not do so. But when I started it, I accidentally back-swiped on my mouse (which on my computer makes the computer go back a page) and now I've lost 25 lingots. I know this is because of my own error, but I really think there should be an option to buy a certificate and keep it for a while and decide to take it when you want.

I bought the certificate yesterday, but clicked "cancel" on the first window where it told me that the test would begin instantly. I see the lingots have been taken from me, and now instead of the price the button next to "certificates" reads "Take test". Just clicked it, and it seems I bought the skill and can take the test whenever I want. (Just to make sure, I wanted to buy it. Seems for me everything is OK)

Oh, ok, that's encouraging! I clicked 'take' based solely on discussions I'd read previously. It's nice to know it's been fixed!
