How do I get my basics 1 to turn gold?
My friend got his level to turn all the way gold, but mine is still colorful with 4 gold bars. How do I make it all gold? I have practiced the level many times trying to make it all gold.
Your Basics 1 skill block is gold. Maybe it just wasn't updating properly earlier? Idk.

Ya. So, I think I know what your problem is. You see a check mark instead of a golden trophy, right? It's just different for different views, for whatever reason. What I mean is, if you click home (The thing that only you see) your completed skill blocks will have a check mark, but if you click on your profile (Person icon at the top right of the screen. It's the thing that everyone else sees.) it will have a golden trophy.
Okay, I see the golden trophy, but the shapes block is still red. My friend's shape block was gold too like in the picture link.
Sounds like a bug then because when I look at your profile, it's gold. Report the issue to Duolingo via the "Support" button on the far left hand side of the screen. I'd take a screenshot too and include that in your report.
This happened to me too. I just completed a red lesson with n mistakes, and it still didn't go to 5/5. I'm not sure why sometimes it goes back to gold and sometimes it doesn't.
