:point_right: This program works, but it does something very different than required.

The "Bummer" response about "-1 times" is a bit misleading (and impossible!), but some of what you wrote is very different from what the challenge asks for:

  • the program will print "Yay!", the user does not enter it.
  • the user will enter the number of times to print.
  • when the printing is done, the program will end
  • the number will be the only thing entered (you won't need ReadKey)

Try again, and be sure to follow the instructions carefully.

Also, while it won't affect the challenge, it's generally considered bad practice to use goto to create loops. Try using one of the loop methods introduced in the course.

Thanks for helping.
