Hi Jose,

you are very close and actually your solution works.

Did you read the error message you get? ;-)

Many times error messages are not that easy to decipher but here treehouse actually gives you a very clear hint as to what you have to change to pass: "Assign message a value in the conditional statment only."

So you just have to delete the first empty string assignment on line 3 and then you pass.

Blessings from Berlin and happy java-scripting, Nils
