Undo accidental lingot purchase?

I accidentally pressed the Steak Freeze button and lost 10 lingots. Is there a way to undo the purchase? It would be nice for there to be a confirm button before purchase.

Hi CiaoMichela,

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.

Is there a way to undo the purchase?

Wait, I just got the lingots back? How did that happen?

I just got the lingots back?

Not really "back" as Duo didn't refunded you the one you paid for the streak freeze: you still have the streak freeze.

How did that happen?

I gave you 11 lingots. See your answer to my first comment: it's indicated you received there 11 lingots. ;)

Cool! I didn't know we could do that. Thanks so much. I'll pay it forward to someone else in need. :)

Also, since I've moved it to Troubleshooting, it's no longer in the Discussion stream. Where do we go to find those discussions? Still learning my way around, so thanks for your help!

I don't see [...] Troubleshooting discussions on there

Here the TBS forum.

Click on the "Edit" blue button on right of "Your subscriptions:" located at the right of your screen once clicked on the above "here" link.
Then subscribe to the TBS forum.

It's in the "all subscribed forums" view, under the "New" tab:

and of course also on the TBS forum view.

Yeah, I tried looking for it in the New tab, but I don't see mine or any Troubleshooting discussions on there. I'm able to access this discussion by clicking it through the notifications.
