Does anyone know if we are still able to earn 10 lingots instead of zero for a seven day streak? I just received my 10 lingots today but I am not able to do the challenge anymore. The double or nothing challenge does not turn red.

For me the double or nothing challenge is active in the lingot store.

Thank you for your response. I was mistaken. I had received two notifications and thought one of them was for the double or nothing. I checked again and realized that I was on day five of seven. Thanks again : )

Merci :) You are so sweet. Have you finished your Spanish tree? I needed to put Spanish on hold for a while. I kept getting the Spanish words and the French words confused. Presently I am doing reverse French and then returning to the French tree to reinforce the skills. What name do you like to be called or do people call you Brave?

Yeah, I have, about a year ago. I was so happy I finished it... though now I am trying to get my whole tree gold... thats going SO well XD !!!

Yeah, that's the same with me but with Spanish and Croatian.

The words "I am Brave" comes from one of my favourite fiction books... And I am addicted to it/obsessed, over the book. (It's called Divergent if you're interested).... though I don't know your age, as it's mainly aimed at teenagers. https://www.readanybook.com/online/565438#357187 (if you're interested)

... Though people call me just by my name XD

Do you play an instrument?? I play the piano and harp (I used to play the organ/started to play it... but the lessons were 100 pounds an hour, so we, (my sisters and I) stopped :P

You are funny! :) Love the crazy elephant! :) I also do not know what to do with the lingots. However, I am hopeful that one day Duo will come up with something fun to do with them :) I do enjoy the 'challenge' of getting double or nothing. This is as far as I go into the 'Land of Betting' I'm a bit embarrassed that I made this silly mistake but I am so happy to have met four new friends. Gavier, please tell me what the four quarters of the elephant brain represent and where did you find this elephant? Does it have wings?

It does look a bit like an elephant doesn't it? However, it in a fact a 'Shadok' - crazy 60s/70s animated tv series.

(Hi!) The new store is a bit late to respond to everything.
1. Go to the store and press F5, or Ctrl+F5 or Apple+F5 to completely refresh the page. Any change?
- Try logging out and in.
- Try another browser if possible.
- Try the app if possible; this may resolve the issue.

Hi Aria! :) I'm so happy to hear from you! Congratulations again on finishing your Irish tree :) Are you still keeping it gold? I've been working on keeping my reverse French gold as I continue doing new skills and making my French tree gold again. You were my inspiration :) So, are you telling me that there is a new store? Lento told me about a new story feature. "Go to the Home page and change to Spanish from English. A 'Labs' tab appears on top. Click 'Labs' and you will see Spanish stories." I can hardly wait till French has this feature! Tell Ophelia to check my Home page. Duo does quotes differently now. I think he will approve ;) I can hardly wait until we have an activity stream again. I miss our little group so very much! Later... Aria, Why is your circle gray instead of your cheery orange?

:D I should work at the last skills to get them golden, but the rest is fine! Glad to have "inspired" you.
There's a whole new website (you can read about it here) and the store is changed due to it. When you notice real new things like Labs, be sure to check the Discussions main page; there's an announcement there right now! Hope you're having fun with the Labs; they're only available in Spanish and Portuguese currently.
I haven't talked to Ophelia for quite a while now, since they went deactivated.
I dearly miss the Activity, and the people. :-/ Let's hope Mr. von Ahn's definition of "soon" matches ours, at least this time.
To keep it very very short, I love grey! Well, I love all colors, but grey is quite lovely! :D

Shades of grey and white are Christina's favorite decorating colors. Christina and her husband have a show called Flip or Flop. They buy old and run down houses and flip them for a profit (usually :) Thanks for the link :) Anne talks with Ophelia on a regular basis on a different site. I'll need to ask her which one. I just noticed yesterday that the quotation marks were normal. The old ones drove Ophelia crazy!!! He was constantly telling me how I could change them. He even enlisted the help of Theron and Anne :) I miss the eccentric genius :)
Aria, have you heard of future fun things we could do with lingots? Would you please tell me 'Good morning my friend :) in Irish?

Au revoir mon ami ;)

Er, what?! Anyway, the most fun thing I've ever done with lingots was drop an 800 lingot-bomb on a dear friend of mine! :D I was horrified she might not come to the website to see the message I'd left her right before Activity was taken down. It'd be "Maidin mhaith mo chara"! Pronounced something like /maijen whah mo khaaraa/, but you can look up individual words in teanglann.ie or focloir.ie and hear their pronunciations! :-) Slán a hEvelyn!
