When my app showed my lingots converted to gems, I used lingots on the duo website to buy a proficiency quiz. I had hoped to take the quiz when I complete the Japanese course. The lingot store doesn't list the quiz option anymore. I just checked the app's gem shop and it shows my Power-Ups, Bonus Skills, and the opportunity to buy gems with real money - but no quiz. Is this service no longer available to everyone or is this temporary?

Today was the first day I saw ads on the new duolingo website. Having seen ads on the app for the past two months, I think it would be nice if there were a way to signal if an ad is either offensive or completely inapplicable to me.

Hi Mobetty,

Could you relocate this discussion in the “Troubleshooting" forum? Which is the place meant for such discussion. Thx!

To relocate it (*), edit your original post then select said forum in the drop-down menu on top-left of the edition area (see here for details).

(*) \/!\ please, don’t create a new one \/!\

Have a look to this short guide to help you knowing where to post your (future) discussions on Duolingo’s forums.

About that question, see, for example,

This indicates your account has finally been switched under the new webversion of Duolingo.

Yes - and someone (presumably at duolingo?) hid my comment that outlines my issue with the offensive/inappropriate ad.

I agree that we need a way to flag problematic ads. It's clear you're using a services that packages ads in some way. At least one is a clear scam, and it's shown up over and over and over...
