Lingots are useless?

I have literally nothing to use my lingots on except ways to get more lingots. Why is there virtually nothing in the lingot store? More skills we could purchase would be nice or we could get the progress quiz back. Anyone agree?

Many of us agree but there is little we can do. Duo adds to the sites and the apps in ways that make it seem like our suggestions are almost entirely overlooked. Just don't worry about it too much and focus on the languages.

I agree - totally useless

Yeah, I 100% agree. The only thing that would consider using them for is buying more sessions. (You know like the ones in the French store for learning idioms and stuff) : )

There are more bonus skills than there used to be—languages like Esperanto and Ukrainian now have them. I agree res the progress quiz, however.

I used to go through them with progress quizes, but now everything is a buy once option, like I have all the extra lessons I have the timed practice, now there is only streak freeze and double or nothing and both of those just increase my lingots.

I guess sometimes they can act as a pretty substantial upvote on forum posts. Honestly, why aren't lingots for posts shown on the discussion list alongside upvotes and downvotes? Lingots are an especially good signal as to the quality of the post and response from the community.

I think lingots may be useful in case of need of repeated freezing.

I would not use the word useless. Lingots are still something that can be used in Duolingo they might not have as many uses as before, which the Duolingo team is working on I'm sure. Just have patience.

Lingots are just silly...I suppose there is some satisfaction in seeing them add up and they become a measure of your success in your studies ..

You get a lingot, and you get a lingot, and you get a lingot.

yes, and it´s such a shame since there´re lots of stuff in german language that must be studied, like idioms, composite senteces, word order (syntax), short text compositions etc. and ligots could be used for that in some way that would encourage you and motivate to learn more. i hope authors are working on it.
