answer option green background steps missing?

In the video, Formsets, why are the newly edited/ added answer and the "Added answers" message popped with that light green background color?

And also I feel like there are steps missing, in particular--editing answers. The previous stage video sets do not include the steps of creating the function--editing answers. Though I know how to do that, observing the codes in the videos of this stage, I feel like there's something missing so there's a gap between theses steps and the previous ones.

I'm wondering if others also experience this or perhaps the @teamtreehouse can make the stuff (i.e. CSS ) in our workspace more correlated to the ones shown in the video and perhaps fill in these gaps changing between videos.

Just to confirm, I'm going through this course now and finding the exact same issues.

The missing steps make it almost impossible to follow along on your own computer. There are new bits of the code and whole chunks of functionality that are missing in the videos.

My workaround is every few steps to open up the Treehouse workspace, and literally read through what's there and compare it to what's on my local machine – line by line. I then type the changes in myself.

These videos were made circa 2015, and treehouse have unfortunately let go of almost all their Python tutors, so it's unlikely they'll be amended anytime soon.
