JavaFX app - Enums compiler error

In the first task it asks you to add JVC SONY COBY and APPLE. I added as such

public enum Brad { JVC, SONY, COBY, APPLE; }

when compiling I receive this message

JavaTester.java:74: error: illegal start of expression package com.example.model; ^ JavaTester.java:74: error: not a statement package com.example.model; ^ JavaTester.java:76: error: illegal start of expression public enum Brand { ^ JavaTester.java:76: error: enum types must not be local public enum Brand { ^ 4 errors

I tried removing what I put into the code and compiling again to see if the same messages appear, and they do. Not sure what I'm looking at and some direction would be super appreciated!

Thank you =]

Hi Trevor,

There seems to be a bug or error on TeamTreehouse's side. The support team are aware of the issue and we'll just have to skip the challenges until the problem is fixed.
