Bummer! Did you prompt the user for the story (1)? I didn't see the first double underscored word prompted (2).

What I have to do to pass the challenge?My code is running,inputs are filtered.So what is left for me to do?

com/teamtreehouse/Main.java
package com.teamtreehouse;

public class Main {

    public static void main(String[] args)  {
        // write your code here\

        Prompter prompt = new Prompter();
        String story = prompt.readStory();

        Template tmpl = new Template(story);
        prompt.run(tmpl);

    }
}

#  This is essentially what I am testing 
1.  The user is prompted for a new string template (the one with the double underscores in it).

  a. The prompter class has a new method that prompts for the story template, and that method is called.

2.  The user is then prompted for each word that has been double underscored.

   a. The answer is checked to see if it is contained in the censored words.
      User is continually prompted until they enter a valid word

3.  The user is presented with the completed story

Apparently I just had to to output on the "promptForWord" method the "phrase" variable

Could you please elaborate?

If I remember correctly my mistake was that I didn't print out the 'phrase'( System.out.println(phrase) ) in the promptForWord method.So I never showed the user the phrase he entered.
