New crown before completing lessons?

I seem to be earning a new crown when I am one lesson away from actually reaching the new set of exercises. Not sure why Duolingo keeps congratulating me twice (once too early, and again when I actually do score X/X exercises).

I just got my 1st crown for a 10-lesson skill after doing... 0 lessons at all!

Happened a few days ago, too. A few days ago I also suddenly found myself with a crown level 2 I'd done nothing to earn. Wouldn't be surprised if these problems are related (of course, they might not be).

Congrats on your level 25!

Thanks for the reply. I haven't had any random ones pop up yet, but if skills could magically skip to Crown 5 on their own, I would be thrilled. :-]

Thank you!
