No lingots were given upon leveling-up

Today I practiced some lessons on the Polish course (after switching to the Crown system), and was promoted from level 2 (60 XP) to level 4 (200 XP). However no lingots were given upon the promotions (2 to3, 3 to4).

I wonder whether it is a new feature of the Crown system or just an error.

Hello Yusuke-san,

You must be one of the lucky selected A/B test users! For more details, check my comments at:

I am glad to see you again Daniel san! I would like to appreciate your kind explanation. I am learning on a PC, thus I suppose the A/B test would also be introduced to PC users.

Though the lingots themselves have eventually no value, I was collecting them as an index of my progress/activities. The change may spoil my motivation... Even though, I am sure to keep learning on Duolingo.

Thanks a lot, have a nice weekend! Yusuke

Edited: My bad. What I said was true few weeks ago. Now, I am not sure whether new tree levels are no longer rewarded with lingots or whether I am in the same A/B test pool with you...

I'm seeing the same behaviour since Friday, April 6th, when my account switched to the crown levels. There are no notifications when I move from one level to another and I received no lingots. I'm using the web version on the Chrome browser. I did not see this behaviour described in the FAQ (frequently asked questions) thread for Crowns.

I reported a bug. Below is a link to the form you could use to do so too. Perhaps it would useful as well to move this thread the to Troubleshooting topic?

Thank you for the comment and suggestion to solve the issue. The circumstances are the same to me. No notifications were given upon level-up (no lingots either).

At this moment I have no information where it is just a bug or an intentional change of the system. However, I agree that the posting to the Troubleshooting topic would be the next step to solve the problem,
