I re-did a lesson and I thought if I did a lesson I would get my lingots for hitting 140 days but I didn't. Do you have to only do news lesson to get them or is there a glitch in the system I was so excited to do a lesson but when I didn't get a notice I was very sad :( I didn't get my forty lingots well there is always in tens days where I should get my lingots for hitting 150 but still I'm sad. Is it because I did immersion first instead of a lesson I don't know what's going on but I am very sad right now.

Duolingo is currently running an A/B test. half of the users still get lingots, while half do not.

Duolingo is unfortunately running an A/B test that will remove the streak reward and you must be in the test group. The test is an attempt to help diminish inflation of the lingot economy.

Oh! How aweful to be test rat and not know it! I hate this new system. I liked getting lingos and giving them away.

Yeah, I know. It is rather awful. Here's a lingot to make you feel better. You also might want to check out this discussion where I explain (or try to do so) why this change has no chance of working :)

Now I know why I didn't get mine. I thought it was a glitch. So much for the streak rewards.

Thanks for the news about the testing. Well I guess I can forget about getting Lingots for a while until the testing is over or they take them away.

You'd get 14 lingots, not 40 -- now you have them!

I wonder... How many lingots do you have? I suspect that this A/B test is lingot-dependent and server-sided. Something like... does the user have more than X lingots? Yes? Then no award for maintaining the streak. Perhaps this little A/B test could be circumvented by dumping lingots to a temporary account so that one has only a scant amount of them.

But that's just my train of thought. I'm not encouraging anyone to do such a thing (which some wouldn't hesitate to call immoral), I stated this just out of curiosity. If lingots were a real currency in a real, physical world, I suppose this behaviour would be... well, you know :)

Interesting theory but I got 43 lingots today for a 430-day streak.

Question is, how many lingots in total do you already have? If, say, above 1000, then I suppose my theory is broken.

Over 1000.
