Hello Roman,

this challenge is a tricky one. You've got to escape all the spaces between the characters by putting minus signs in your template, as follows.

{%- for item in User.email[1:User.email.index('@')] -%}

The minus signs are needed before and after every percentage mark of your macro. Here you can find more information:
