No longer getting lingots for 10n-day streak?
Previously for every 10 days I got one lingot for every ten days I had a streak going, but I just hit my 60-day streak and didn't get six lingots. Also noticed in the lingot store that it doesn't list the streak bonus anymore... but I haven't been able to find any mention on the forums of this change, and the wiki doesn't reflect it. Has this bonus been intentionally removed? If not, what could be going on?
(Firefox 37, Windows 7, in case anyone wants to know.)
It is a new A/B test. I had it happen to me yesterday (80 day streak). I searched & didn't see anyone else with the same problem, so I posted. Some kind soul gave me 8 lingots & pointed me to your post ... and thus to the thread with the info in it. Keep up the good work & don't let it get you down that you didn't get lingots for continuing your streak. Bon courage!
Seems this is happening to more and more people. If the rules have changed, at least let us know. Also, as petty as it may appear, many of us are sticking to Duolingo because of the Lingot-driven motivation (someone could probably to some interesting psych papers just on this topic!)
> I reported this to Duolingo. The answer isn't good news, "I am sorry for the new update, after a couple of months of A/B testing, we have stopped giving lingot rewards to Android users."
> I presume the same fate awaits iOS and Windows users.
Every tenth day, do your first practice in the browser of your phone instead of the App.
Duolingo needs the most recent version of a modern browser, like Google Chrome or Firefox.
