Java Local Development Environments Advanced Tooling Finishing TreeStory

I'm getting in error when submitting my code but it runs in IntelliJ

I keep getting and error that says, "Did you prompt the user for a new story (1)? I see the original prompt" when Im submitting my code. It works when I run it in IntelliJ so I'm just confused what is causing the error.

        String story = "Thanks __name__ for helping me out.  You are really a __adjective__ __noun__ and I owe you a __noun__.";
        Template tmpl = new Template(story);
        StoryPrompter.run(tmpl);
        List<String> fakeResults = Arrays.asList("friend", "talented", "java programmer", "high five");

#  This is essentially what I am testing 
1.  The user is prompted for a new string template (the one with the double underscores in it).

  a. The prompter class has a new method that prompts for the story template, and that method is called.

2.  The user is then prompted for each word that has been double underscored.

   a. The answer is checked to see if it is contained in the censored words.
      User is continually prompted until they enter a valid word

3.  The user is presented with the completed story

Can you paste what the TODOs were on this one again? I thought a part of it was letting the user enter their own story or using the default one. From what I can see you don't have a way to enter a new story?
