Hello Demetre,

If you're using Treehouse Workspaces, you may want to use the Workspace Snapshots feature to easily share your project when asking questions here in the Community.

I hope this helps.

Hi Demetre,

Screenshotting is not very helpful as people are going to want to be able to copy and paste your code to replicate any problems you are having. So instead of using screenshots you should copy and paste your code into the text box.

When you do, put a line before your code that contains three backticks (`) followed by the name of the language (e.g., 'csharp'). Put another line after your code, also with three backticks. This will ensure that your code is properly formatted on the page.

Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");

Will render as:

Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");

You can click on the link to the Markdown Cheatsheet beneath the text entry box to see more guidance on this. You can also click the 'eye' icon on the bottom right corner of the text entry box to get a preview of what your code will look like, so you can verify that you've got it right before posting.

Hope that's clear.
