No more lingots for reaching 180 day streak?
I just reached a 190 day streak and, just like with 180 days, I didn't get any lingots for it. I first thought it was a bug but now I'm not so sure anymore. Is Duolingo running out of them? It seems so because they took them away as well for finishing a lesson with no mistakes. It would be nice if you would still get them every ten day streak. I promise not to use them for evil :)
Here are some lingots to make up for it! I really hope the test fails and they restore streak lingots again, as I also found them oddly motivating. Plus, it was just nice to get a little acknowledgment every 10 days. It's not like a few extra lingots circulating in the Duo economy caused anyone to suffer...
Something like that, I guess! To be honest I don't know how the A/B tests work and what variables they use to measure "user engagement" or whatever it is. The recent changes haven't changed how I use Duolingo either. Obviously we are here to learn and practice, but the little motivators helped make Duolingo fun. Now when I reach another 10 days I feel a little pang of disappointment. :'(
