I am completely stuck on task 2. When I complete it as it makes sense to me I get "task number one is no longer passing
Is the problem with task one? I thought just by virtue of making the string a list it splits on whitespace. If I apply the split function to my list variable I also get an error. I just can't figure out where my problem is here.
The error you're experiencing is caused by the extra code you added for task two causing an error of its own. The reason why that would make Task 1 fail is that the website is checking for the result of Task 1, and it gets an error response; it's not so much that Task 1 is now wrong, as much as that the code for Task 2 is wrong and is causing an error.
You can fire up Workspaces and run your code to see what the error is specifically; however, task 2 is looking for:
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse".split()
Hey Julianne, that happend to me sometimes aswell, not sure what is causing it, try removing the code from task 2 and then check the answer again. Atleast that did the job for me most of the time.
I also just tried that question, there seems to be an error somewhere. From what I believe this should be the correct answer for part 1, however it is not accepted.
full_name = "Jan Müller" name_list = full_name.split( )
