Who remembers 25 Lingots got you a language Proficiency Test.

I used to be able to go to the store and spend 25 lingots on a proficiency test and see my past scores.

It tested my Italian ability from 1 to 5

Now I do not see it and it isn't mentioned on the blogs/help pages.

Does anyone else remember having this option to test your language skills?

Why did they get rid of it?

Under consideration:

  • Progress quiz (we would rather focus efforts on creating other, more popular shop items)

I do...it is such a shame they got rid of it...it was the only way to use up lingots.

Duolingo has lots of useless leftover functions these days: lingots, friends.. They need a defrag.
