Lingot streak-freeze not working

Hey, I didn't feel like doing the exercises yedsterday, so I paid 10 lingots for a streak-freeze. Streak had been over 110 days, but today, in spite of the lingot thing, it is back to zero.

I recall having read somewhere a streak-freeze works only from the day after it was bought and forward, so that could explain it? Not entirely sure about it though...

Thank you for the reply. Nope, though, I had had those lingots for quite some time.

It's not about (how long you have) the lingots, but about when you bought something with them I believe (in this case the Streak Freeze). Another example: if you buy a 7-day-wager today and then do your daily XP required for the day the counter will remain at 0, it will only start the next day). I think it's the same with the freeze (it won't work on the day you bought it, although you could just as well do 1xp then if you're online anyway), but I'm not going to test it as I don't want to risk my streak =p
