I typed reverse. name.reverse should reverse "Treehouse", right?

I'm not sure whats going on. Is this a bug?

I'm not entirely sure which question you're talking about, but I'll just assume is the question that requires you put two methods. In that question, they ask you to first reverse it by using the reverse method and then make them lowercase. Like this:

name = "Treehouse"
name.reverse.downcase

On the question that expects two methods, there are TWO input fields. I was entering "reverse.downcase" in the first field, not realizing there was another. Use both input fields and you'll be golden.
