Providing the Answer in the Code Challenges...

Each and every time I couldn't figure out where I am doing wrong, I have to start a discussion. Isn't this also kinda "Bummer"?

Providing the answer, maybe after 3 or 5 failure, would be excellent and save us newbies to clutter the discussion section.

Anyhow, I've found my answer through other questions' answers.

What I like to do when I don't understand a code challenge is to just copy and paste the exact question into google or your search engine of choice and usually the first two links are someone having the same problem. If I still don't understand or the explanation was unclear I then create a post. I hope this helped :)

That's even better.

Not just you, +1 :)

Hi Ozzie,

There are workarounds, of course; google search, crawling among the forum posts, trial & error, etc. Especially google; it's a saint, alright, real life-saver :)

Still, I'm behind my feature proposal. Many of us might benefit of it.

Best,

Hi Ender,

I completely agree with you that after a good amount of failures we should get the answers or maybe a hint to put us on the right path. Another thing that would be really great is when you pass a quiz with 4 out of 5 answers right, it should tell us what was the correct answer for the question we got wrong, but that might just be me. :)
