I can't seem to pass the code challege for parameter modification please help

At the code challenge where you have to delete the params[:status] if it exists in the params hash, nothing I do will pass this challenge. i tried this: '''Ruby if params[:status] && params[:status].has_key?(:user_id) params[:status].delete(:user_id) end '''

And it still wouldn't pass, I even checked the output and sometimes it still showed it existed, but even when it showed nil it still wouldn't pass.

What am I doing wrong? I've been stuck on this for weeks.

Hey Osgaldor Storm is that all on one line? That may be the problem. Your code is correct:

if params[:status] && params[:status].has_key?(:user_id)

Jason I'm having the same problem as Osgaldor...

My code is exactly the same as you and him wrote and is still not working...

I can't seem to get the markdown to work in this post either. i put the 3 backticks before the language and after the code, but it still looks crappy.

I think there is a problem in the quiz.
