No credit for equipping a streak freeze

Trying to figure out why I am not getting credit for equipping streak freezes. I have equipped on several occasions but not used them. When I check the store, it says the freeze is equipped. I would like to figure this out as the streak freeze is one of only two items I need to complete to have all the achievements finished.

When it is not equipped the field is blue and states the price. You can buy it then. It stays equipped until you use it. To reflect this, the field is gray and states equipped. You cannot buy it then, no lingots are deducted from your account. It is always better to have it ready :)

Does this mean you do not get credit for equipping a freeze unless you actually use it? I prefer actually practicing every day and am not willung to give up my actual streak for one I know is not real just to get an achievement credit.

Do you mean the big spender achievement? I would not miss a day just so that I can buy a new streak freeze, too, it does not make sense to me. I lost my streak a month ago because I did not practice, I replied in the sentence discussions instead, out of sight out of mind. But I do not rember if the partial achievement was to equip a streak freeze because it only shows "spent 200 lingots" :-/

It's the Wizard achievement for which I am getting no credit. I have all but one other (Friendly for which I have 2 credits) completed. However, for whatever reason I have none for the Wizard even though I have "bought" freezes several times (but not used them)

When the new achievements were introduced it did not take earlier achieved goals into account, for example I finished trees already, but the achievement only took the next one into account... but I do not have the wizzard any more nor the "practice in different time zone" mine changed and are now labelled as:
wildfire (streak), champion (golden owl), friendly (clubs and invitations), overachiever (xp), shiny (golden skills), big spender (lingots), overtime (weekends) and sharpshooter (lessons without errors).

Interesting that I have the same 8 as you but also have the Wizard and one called Inner Circle (you get stars by being a weekly club point winner). Like you, I had all my achievements completed before they added new ones.
