An IDE is not very useful for code challenges as it can only detect syntax errors, it has no idea if you are meeting the challenge objectives.

But the challenge should have given you this message: "Bummer: ... Are you using the this keyword?". That's a hint that the internal code should not refer to the object by name, but instead it should use the "this" keyword.

The instructions also did not ask for a parameter to be added to the function.
