Crown system, not getting Lingots when leveling up

I am using the new crown system via the web.

My understanding is that I should receive lingots when I level up within a skill (level 1 to 2, level 2 to 3, etc).

Is this true?

My reason for asking is that so far, I haven't received any leveling up lingots and I've bumped up several skills.

I am willing to submit a bug report, but first I wanted to make sure that my understanding is correct.

Thanks all!

My setup: - High Sierra 10.13.3 - Chrome Version 65.0.3325.162

I am having the same problem. I leveled up but received no lingots. Makes me sad.

High Sierra 10.13.3 - Safari 11.0.3

BTW: I submitted a bug report yesterday.

Just saw your post today, I am experiencing the same problem as well!

I've also submitted a bug report, so far I haven't heard back from the Duolingo team so I hope they can fix this issue ASAP.

I've also converted to the crown system and access Duolingo via their website using a Chrome browser.

Have you heard back from the Duolingo team and has this issue been resolved on your account?

Try Safari or Firefox. I'm on High Sierra and the Lingot award seems to be working on those browsers.

Thankfully, I used Safari this morning (It was going to be day 340 for me, so 34 lingots at play). And poof, magic, they appeared.

What's now even more interesting, is that in Safari and Firefox, the award notification is in my notices queue (that yellow bell at top-right).

Oddly... it's not there in Chrome. I took screen shots to dbl check I wasn't crazy....

I'm glad to hear that you've found a workaround until Duolingo resolves this issue.

As for me, still no luck - today I logged into my Duolingo account using Mozilla Firefox instead of Google Chrome and levelled up to Level 12 on the reverse Korean tree (English for Korean speakers). After seeing your comment here, I was hopeful that I could finally receive my long-awaited lingots but so far nothing has happened.

I'm using a Windows 7 laptop so I don't know if this issue has anything to do with my operating system. :/

I am facing the same issue on my windows 10 chrome

I'm on Safari on both my iPhone and laptop. I get lingots when I level up on the iPhone. I don't get lingots when I level up on my laptop. I get lingots for consecutive days and wagers on both iPhone and laptop. Also I get or lose health points on my iPhone bit there is no health point functionality on my laptop

They changed the lingot system. In the store it now says "Earn 1 Lingot" when you level up, no longer as many as the level you're moving up to. This is because testing out of skills could give you hundreds of XP at a time, so of course it would be a little unfair.
