  5. I have 666 lingots. Earlier …

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

I have 666 lingots. Earlier today I had 200. Something is wrong.

Does anyone else have this? Earlier today I had around 200. Now I have 666. I don't do immersion and I don't know of any comments where I would have received 400 lingots.

Does anyone else have this problem?

    Oh, I can hear another countdown... :P

    boom


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

    I can change that.

    A lot of people has been "lingot littering" these days. Probably just a donor.

    Change mine lol :)

    what is happening?

      Wow thanks!

      Well You're lucky! All of you are lucky!!! :) I wish someone would come to me, and donate as much as well. I try to learn the language, but it's not my talent. I'm at 0. :(

      Is it possible to buy lingots?


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

      Not in the store. But Alexis and I once seriously considered having a lingot auction in the forums. (That way we could both get rid of them and transfer them to the person who considers them the most valuable, thus maximizing mutual utility :) )


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

      I am safe. :D Gotten no lingots so far. Phew!


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

      I got 100 earlier. Can you believe it? But don't worry! I gave them all away to random people.


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

      Here's a lingot bomb for your kindness! Now you have 50 shiny lingots :D


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

      Reid! Vous êtes génial! Merci beaucoup. I will find a way to use them as the prize in my next discussion competition.


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

      De rien! I've had 800 lingots sitting around and I don't really need them because I've already bought bonus skills in every language I want to learn, so I really don't have any use for them anymore... I think it's just time for me to give all of them away, I'll probably leave myself an allowance of 75 lingots or so in case anything new is added to the lingot store :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nao321

      Hallo! Oh I will give you a lingot! I only have 6


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/act900

      well 666 lingots could also be a lot of lingots added up from multiple coments!


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

      Someone may have gifted you many lingots.


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

      I think I found it. I commented something pointless on another topic earlier and I was given exactly 501 lingots for whatever reason.

      The only reason I was concerned was because it added up to 666 and I seemed like Duolingo or I was hacked.


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

      Well, they still knew how many lingots you needed to get to 666...


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

      Which doesn't really need any "hacking". The info is freely available for everyone. Let me give you 62 additional lingots, so that you are at a nice 1200 :)


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

      How is the info available?


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

      Either search the info manually (search for "rupees") or parse the JSON: http://www.duolingo.com/users/GeniusJack


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

      That information is freely available for everyone (who is good with computers).


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

      (or has access to a wataya) ;-)


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

      It just seems like some kind of glitch to me, given the connotation of 666. I'm not complaining though. Some Satan-worshiper may be laughing right now, but I have 200% as many lingots as before.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goldenphoenix26

      666... <lightning flashes and all lights go out> haha just kidding :P


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

      Take this 45 someone gave me tonight (I can't get away from them).


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

      Why thank you. Here are 45 lingots as a token of my appreciation.


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

      that was a good one! :)


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

      I don't like any of you. See, that's 110 lingots in the past couple of hours, and most likely 200 today.


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

      I'm laughing right now. :D I wonder if Jack will join ;)


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

      If he does, he's in trouble.


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

      You're not alone, Annie! I'm laughing with you! :D


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/act900

      man I took the placement test and passed so many levels that I would have like 100 but instead I have 6. It's crazy with all these people who have like 100 of lingots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


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

      The same problem for me - 200 lingots has been missed on July,12. What's wrong? And how to fix it? Can somebody help me? Or explain this situation, please :(
