There's a limit on the title length, and whatever question you were asking about this got cut off.
Please edit the body of the question to add it back in.

I over-complicated the solution on the first few attempts (trying to apply the logic from the preceding video tutorial)

You can use a combination of an "if" function and "len" function to test the string length of "product_idea" and then "raise" a "ValueError" if the entered string doesn't meet the criteria. Enter this block above the return statement

You don't need to do anything more complicated than that.

Let me know if you're still stuck.
