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?

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

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

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

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/CharmingTiger

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

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/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 :)

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/sylviamf80

      Is it possible to buy lingots?

      January 4, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/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 :) )

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

      January 4, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/act900

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

      Someone may have gifted you many lingots.

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/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.

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/Lenkvist

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

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/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 :)

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/GeniusJack

      How is the info available?

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/wataya

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

      January 2, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/Lenkvist

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

      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.

      January 2, 2015

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

      https://www.duolingo.com/AlexisLinguist

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

      That's nice of you guys to give out lingots. I love when people help me. I have only 62 lingots.

      Soloman had 666 talents of gold and the number of the beast is 666. Thomas Cruise and Ashley Greene's Jewish Gametria adds up to 666. Something's fishy about this number.

      January 5, 2015

      https://www.duolingo.com/Apahegy

      I know, right?

      And if that isn't crazy enough, think about this.

      There are 665 (positive integer) numbers less than 666, and 667 is greater than 666; 666 is between 665 and 667.

      If that doesn't blow your mind, here's one more thing to consider:

      6 is less than 666, and 66 is also less than 666. If you put 6 and 66 together, you get... 666! Someone definitely hacked my account.

      You're hillarious. That just made my day (actually something else already did, but I guess you made me laugh for the first time today).
