There is a glitch with the Lingots

Hello everyone. There is a glitch with the lingots. I posted a dicussion about the fictional languages being learned on this site.

Here's a link to that dicussion: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25086987

People gave me over two hundred gems on that dicussion. But i recieved over ten thousand lingots. Can someone please explain to me why this glitch is happening.

Also, can you all please gives this discussion a thumbs up so that other people can see it. Thank you!

How come your text is grey?

    It's a link.


    I wonder if the moderators have the power to see who gave whom lingots.


    I was practicing Italian just now, and my lingot count rocketed from 25 to 350!!! There are hundreds of glitches, DUOLINGO, PLEASE FIX THIS!


    Lingots are helpful still, even with the lingot inflation, because (or my reason for using them) you can give people lingots if their post was really helpful


    None of it matters. Lingots are worthless, and it makes no difference if you have 500 or 50,000. Duolingo has better things to do than spend real $$$ on programmers to dig into who is bombing whom with lingots and why.


    I think it would be cool if we could buy lingot figurines to display in our bar at the top

      Inb4 lingot beggars take over the comments.


      Why am I the only one this isn't happening too X'D


      Yes, ArmadilloTacoCat told me about this glitch. This has not happened to me before, but I have heard others talk about it.


      Update: It is happening to me now. What is going on???!!!


      I only gained around 20-odd suspicious lingots, but I'm not sure where. I definitely didn't get them from courses though.

      But thousands?! That sounds insane...


      I only have 134 lingots :(


      Hi i got a glitch but it is different than what im hearing here.I started Duolingo and i had 5 linglots when i finished 3 of the exercises in French. When i did another 3 exercise my linglot went up to 3789! Then i looked more carefully and guess what...I COMPLETED ALL THE EXCERSISES IN FRENCH. I was so happy. Then i did another excersise and ....all my progress was gone except i dont know how but my French level came up from level 2 to level 9. Can somebody tell me why is duolingo messing with my account.
