JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Capturing Visitor Input and Writing It to the Page

Hi, There is a bug in Challenge Task 1 of 3 "Create variable named answer...", JavaScript Basics Track. Please fix.


It seems there is an issue with checking the correct answer as the "Working" starts before a user press this button in order to provide a correct answer which is var answer;

Please advise and fix (if needed).

Thank you

I can confirm this is happening on Chrome 43.0.2357.65 on OS X 10.8.5. Looks like something is firing a click on the check work button shortly after pageload and then that request fails with a timeout error about the server connection.

Of course, now that I posted the comment and went back to try it again(for the 4th time), it worked just fine. Maybe a cache issue?

Thank you for your feedback, Tom. Yes, I am using Chrome and "Yes", it works fine after a few tries. I have communicated with my internet provider and they confirmed that connection looks good.

I hope that technical support could take a look at this issue as I am not the only one who is using Chrome and experiencing this problem.
