No more lingots for keeping a streak?!

I just reached my 600 day streak (on 4/23/2015) which means I should have gotten 60 lingots but got nothing! No more lingots for keeping a streak?!!

They're currently running an A/B test, and you're in the group that has had the streak rewards removed.

That's a bummer. :-( But I just found out that I can still earn lingots from "Double or Nothing". :-)

That must suck LOL - I didn't get my 5 lingots today either, but I don't care because 5 lingots is 5 lingots :D

Why would they even run a test that removes lingots from streaks?

Duolingo is trying to combat virtual economy inflation. You can read a post I made about it here.

I read that post. Not very informative. My question is: Why does "virtual economy inflation" matter? It's a Game. Lighten up and let us enjoy it.

I agree with you in that. That's part of the reason I'm against removing the streak rewards. Lingots are fun and I don't think the economy is that big of an issue. But since they are tackling the lingot economy, they should try to do it right.

I just got a lingot for a 10 day streak. Maybe they're back.

Yay! Yes, they are back. I just got 67 lingots for my 670 day streak. :-)

I just completed a 60 day streak, but did get any lingots either. They seem to be taking away any positive reinforcement. This is really disappointing.

You can still play "Double or Nothing". And let's hope it is not because of a bug or that they forgot to take it away. - 4/25/2015
