Lingots have disappeared

I have been practicing both in my PC and in my mobile and this afternoon when I last checked my mobile I had 641 lingots. I have just logged in my PC now and I have only 611 lingots. I have not taken any special practice modules or spent my lingots in any way. Where have my 30 lingots gone, I wonder?

Did you maybe unlock any bonus skill for 30 Lingots?

I don't remember doing that. I had decided to finish the mainstream trees before taking any of the bonus skills. I may have accidentally clicked something, though. I'm taking three languages, so now I have to find out if and where I clicked wrong... Thanks for your response!

You can do a quick check by going into the lingot store and seeing if a skill says "equipped" :)

I found out this morning that I must have accidentally clicked on one of those suits available for the owl on the mobile, and I ended up buying the tackier one, with the gold jacket and the sunglasses. 30 lingots for that! :-( Anyway, now I know what happened, and I will be extra careful when playing on my mobile from now on. Thanks for your response!

I like your Matilda profile picture.

I really like that illustration. It captures the moment when we read something that moves us so much we have to stop reading and look up from the book for a while.

Me too. I lost my 30 lingots, and only have one left.

Scratch that, I lost the last one.

why is the "progress bar" in red at times and blue at other times?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

It corresponds to the strength of the skill. It will match the color of the skill as it appears on your tree/course. :)

Me too, I have 20 lingots and now it's only 2, O_O

I had over 30,000 lingots and after an update I had only 9,000. No explanation. Now I can hardly get any new ones other than by maintaining a streak.
