Double or nothing button

  • 1706

The "double or nothing" functionality has been broken for several weeks at least. Examples: (1) I finish a 7-day streak, and get the notification and lingots. I go to the lingot page, but the counter hasn't incremented, and I can't make a new wager. This persists after many refreshes, even later in the day. (2) The pop-up appears, offering me the chance to make the wager. The button is unresponsive. (3) The button on the main lingots page is unresponsive. (4) I press a button to make a wager, and it seems to respond correctly, but then realize one or two days later that the counter isn't incrementing, or that DL thinks that I hadn't ever made the wager. /// I'm not saying that all these are occurring all the time, but I've seen some variation of these at least once a week. I'm seeing them on multiple computers and I had NOT seen these behaviors or variations of them for YEARS prior, while I made the wagers every week.

These problems have persisted through multiple browser (and even OS) restarts, and I'm not using a Mac, but thanks for the suggestion. Have a lingot!

Two of these behaviors happened again today (13 Jul 2017)!! Yesterday, I finished a 7-day streak and got 10 lingots. I went to the lingot page and made the wager again. Everything looked right. Today, I earn points, then I get the notification page, asking me if I'd like to wager! So, my wager yesterday didn't "take," even though it appeared to have worked. THEN, after I select the wager button on the notification page (today), I navigate to the lingots page, and the button is colored AGAIN, as if I STILL hadn't made the wager. I select it, and it "takes," and now I'm at "0 of 7." I should be at 1 of 7. Again, this occurs on multiple computers and is unaffected by browser refreshes, multiple browser restarts, and even OS reboots.
