I'm working on this same one and it says: Bummer: Whoops - did you create a function called print_topic?

This is clearly a problem... Any suggestions on how to progress past this?

Strange... I reloaded the page, tried again, and it worked fine. Either way, the error message provided as a response is not even close to what I was instructed to do.

Still doesn't work for me - is this a bug?

you need to leave 4 spaces ____pass

def my_first_function(): pass once you are on the second line it will be indented then you have to count four spaces then type pass

I don't know what happend It still not working

Still buggy July 2023. As suggested, I made sure to include the four spaces. After reloading the page twice, it passed.
