Out of control streak/gems glitch?
Something weird is going on. My notifications are telling me that my streak is now up to 1090 days and continuously counting, and I've currently got over 30,000 gems, and both numbers keep going up!! Not that it's a bad thing to have such a good streak and lots of gems, but I didn't actually earn them, so there's a glitch or something that Duolingo might want to fix... Anyone else experiencing this?
I've restarted my app on both iPad and iPhone and also logged in on Safari, they all show the very high number of gems I've suddenly accumulated, and on Safari the notifications tab is telling me I have a 1090 day streak. It just started doing this today and it kept going up and up... seems to have stopped for now.
Your user file only records a streak of 298. You really do have 30868 lingots, however. Lingot glitches have certainly happened before, although I think they have tended to happen to lots of people at the same time in the past; the streak glitch, on the other hand, is more likely to be a local script/browser problem, as your real streak does not appear to have changed.
I'm not really bothered what my streak is, since I'll be losing it soon when I go on a trip to India. Should I not worry about the gems/lingots either? It seems unfair that I have so many without earning them, but they're kind of pointless to me anyway.
