not receiving lingots for streaks

First and foremost I've just realised that I stopped getting lingots for 10days on a streak (not the wager, I mean the third point listed as a way for getting lingots). I don't know how long it's been but for sure I didn't get any for last two 10s.
It's visible in the notifications - all visible ones are for winning the wager and no about receiving lingots for the streak. So I got none for at least 4x7=28days.
Is it normal that after some time you stop getting them for streaks? Or there is something wrong? What can I do?

Do you use the Android version? I don't know about the IOS but the Android version has A/B tests going on where going up a tree level and/or completing a 10 day streak is no longer rewarded for some users (me included)!! I thought they were going to replace the lingots with gems or some similar artifact but no, why bother reward committed users... You can still get credit if you use the Web version...

wow, I didn't know that, thanks! I mostly use Android now.
That's really stupid. I can understand the streaks not rewarded, as you can wager, but not getting for skills (I'm not sure what you mean by 'tree level') is weird..
Are we talking about Norwegian or all the courses?

The tree levels refer to the levels you are at in a given tree, eg your En-Sp tree level seems to be at 8 right now. Normally, you would get 9 lingots when you reach level 9, etc... This is no longer true if you are an Android user and selected as an A/B test user...

It may be a silly question... but do you really speak all those languages at 20+ levels?? HOW?!?

I think it is an A/ B test as I am still getting them.

Perhaps they are thinking of removing this source of Lingots rather giving us something to spend them on.

Same thing happened to me. I do not know when mine stopped because I trusted the app and so did not always keep track. I think I got at 390 and then it stopped. But I am certain that it has been MORE THAN 40 DAYS because the wager lingots are in the list. (i.e. at least 4 times I got no streak lingots)

I tried using the internet , the Apple App and the Android App...same problem.

really? weird, because as @ID-007 said above, that actually works on the desktop version (I use now desktop when I'm at xx9 streak day to get the lingots despite usually using the app)
