But if I recall how that challenge worked, it wanted you to assign the formatted string to the subject variable.

:point_right: It did not want you to print anything.

Another hint: you can use format directly on the string that has the {}'s.

Please include a link to the challenge.

just added it

Okay so the problem isn't requesting you to print anything. The problem states

"now use .format() on the string "Treehouse loves {}" to put your name into the placeholder. Assign this to the variable subject again."

so your code would look like this:

name = "Tim"
subject = "Treehouse loves {}".format(name)

You are printing the solution which is the problem, it is simply asking you to create a variable "subject" and assign it the value "Treehouse loves" and format that string with the variable name.
