I am having problems with this code not working. Also, when I try and access this group help forum, every time I push the space bar while I type in this comment section it re-starts my course video from the treehouse course I'm on. Is there a glitch or am I doing something wrong? Thanks.

On your second to last line you have an extra set of quote marks around your document write statement. You also need to add a final } to end your else statement. It should look like:

else { 
document.write("No crown for you. You need to study.");
