No lingots for streak?

I just reached my 60 day streak. I wasn't awarded any lingots for reaching 40, 50 or 60 days. Why not?

The bell shaped icon on my duolingo toolbar is grayed out. Does that mean I can't get credit for streaks anymore?

the bell on your tool bar is your notification . when it is greyed out it means you dont have any new notifications :) so when it is bright and has a number by it, click it and you should have a notification: good luck!

You can check the ways of receiving lingots mentioned in the lingot store. Is there a mention of earning lingots for the streak?

I earned 1 for 10 days, 2 for 20 days and 3 for 30 days. Then nothing

There's an ongoing test in progress as part of which the streak award has been removed for a percent of users. The idea is to eventually do away with this means of earning lingots if there is no significant impact on the language learning process for users (and probably user retention to some extent).

You can check the lingot store page. If you're part of the test, you will not see an option for earning lingots by streak in the list of ways mentioned.

The streak option is no longer in the lingot store. I must be part of the "lucky" text group. Thanks for explaining it to me!
