Does anyone else have this problem? The leaf on the tree is grey and I cannot click on it. It's already activated in the lingot store so I can't re-purchase.

Can you get to the skill via a direct link? https://www.duolingo.com/skill/eo/Esperanto_Culture
(The bonus skills don't appear on my tree either and never have, so I have to get to them that way)

Ĝi funkciĝis! Kial mi ne akiris tiun ideon? Mi ankoraŭ ricevas "XP" kaj post la unua leciono la folio aperis denove en mia arbo. Mi scius, kial Duolingo forigis tiun lerton?

Sounds like it just doesn't exist anymore. It is not available for purchase nor is it a skill listed in my tree at all.

I hope it isn't true. If that's the case, that would be the second feature I purchase on Duolingo that they take down before I got a chance to use it. Awesome.

It may turn out that they add it at a later point again. It is hard to know since this type of information isn't communicated to us. I am sorry to hear that you have had this kind of things happen more than once.

Thanks. It's frustrating because they could easily have given us a heads-up and then I would either have done it immediately or not purchased it. They shouldn't sell something when they already know they are going to make it unavailable to the purchaser. It's no big deal because it's a fake currency, but it would be easy to communicate better.

Same here. It was working just fine a couple days ago.

I don't know the specifics here but this has happened before when a skill wasn't released or if Duolingo otherwise did changes on their end. The system knows you've bought it but for whatever reason it's not available. When that "whatever reason" is solved, you should be able to use it.

Usually when I log in for the first time, the skill doesn't even appear at all. When I go to the lingot store and immediately go back to the tree (without buying anything in the store), it suddenly appears, but in a grayed out state. And it has been grayed out ever since the moment I bought it - so that was a real waste of lingots. Fortunately I have plenty of those lingots and I don't know what to do with them anyway, but I would like to try this Eo Culture skill.
