Upgrade to code challenges tips/help

First I want to say you have a great site but a lot more work needs to be done.

I think the tips in the code challenges need to be more accurate to reflect what is wrong with your code. It is all a learning experience, but frustration will stop people continuing on with the course.

I think a nice feature would be to have definitions of key words in the code challenges tips. Such as "SET variable options".

What does everyone think?

@Chris - I imagine the experience varies widely depending on the course you are working on.

I think a more constructive discussion could be had if you mentioned a specific course, and added that as a tag to the thread.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess you are having a tough time with the JQuery course. So maybe it would be a good idea to start there.
