Task 1 is no longer passing.

I have been having this problem for 2 weeks now. After completing the first task and attempting the second one, I get an error "Task 1 is no longer passing". Please help fix

Program.cs
using System;

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            int i = 0;
            Console.Write("Enter the number of times to print \"Yay!\": ");
            string input = Console.ReadLine();
            try
            {
            int count = int.Parse(input);
               if(i < count)
               {
                Console.WriteLine("You must enter a positive number");
               }
               else
               {
               i = i + 1;
               Console.WriteLine("Yay!");

               }
            }
            catch(FormatException)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("You must enter a whole number");
            }
        }
    }
}

It looks like you removed the originally provided "while" loop while adding the task 2 code. That loop is necessary for both tasks.

Also, take another look at the test for negative input. Instead of comparing the index to the count, you probably want to compare the count with 0.

Thanks. I was able to resolve it.
