git intro question please help

I'm stuck on this practice object

Let's presume that you're in a git repository that has git-flow installed. You're ready to work on a new feature called "profiles." What command would you use to get started?

I have tried these codes

git flow feature start feature_profiles

git flow feature start profiles_name

git flow profiles start feature_profiles

git flow feature start feature_name_profiles

so I'm kind of lost here I was doing really well up till this point

Thanks for the help

It just wants you to start a feature with the name in the description of the task so don't prefix "feature_" or something else to it. Tommy just uses "feature_name" as a placeholder for the feature you probably would work on when you use it in a project.

This is just a hint to let you get that feeling of an "ahaaa"-effect. :)

Here is the correct answer.

git flow feature start profiles

git flow feature start profiles

i copied and pasted these answers and it does not work. This exercise is flawed.

Hehe thanks Robert, much appreciated. That's how it should be. I also sent a support request because the "." could be a bit misleading while doing that exercise.

No problem. But you could upvote the/my right answers (also in the other thread) so that others could see it if there get more questions in here.
