What am I missing here? I'm trying to ask a question but I keep getting some red error window.

I would post a screen grab, but that doesn't seem to be an option here.

I missed a question in a quiz. I click on the green button to the right of the quiz that says "Ask a Question" about this. I do so. I write in my question and description. I get a red error window that says "This requires at least one letter or number." What does that mean?

I'll try it again, sorry you're both having that problem. If I can't solve it, I'll pass it on to some of our devs to see if they can help.

Thanks for sharing guys!

I'll grab the attention of one our devs that works on this. In the mean time, can I help you with the question you're unable to get past? If there is code, please include it in your response.

Please can you help me understand why my code is not working on the Python Basics "create a variable with name in it" challenge

my code is below:

name = input("What's your name?")

if name == "Phillip": print(name + " is cool ") else: print (name + " is a dork and " + name + " smells funny! ")

I tried to recreate your problem, but I might need more information.

When I first pressed on the green ask a question button a popup window said, "Ask a Question." Next it prompts you with similar questions in the forum. I pressed "Next Step" because none satisfied my query. Lastly I got a question box with the question I asked in the subject line and a large text area to submit an answer. When I pressed submit, it sent my question to the forum.

Is this similar to what you're seeing? If not, could you walk me through so I can see what you're seeing?

I was asking a question from inside a quiz. The quiz said I got the answer wrong, so I wanted to ask about it. To the right of the quiz, before clicking "Next Question", I clicked the green button that says "Ask a Question about this quiz" (or something similarly worded).

I then went through your workflow you posted above, but when I clicked to submit it, it wouldn't submit, and instead inserted a red box between the subject and the "Describe" text box saying I needed to "insert a letter or number" (again, something similarly worded to that). It's a nonsensical error because I had filled out all the form fields out appropriately.

I'm not sure why but when I ex it off and tried it again it worked, maybe unless you already done that you could try what I did.

Good to know, I did that too... which is maybe why it keeps working for me.

Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. We're always happy to help, and usually when I bring forum issues to the devs they are aware of the issue and working hard to fix it. I'm sure that was the case here and that's why we can't break it anymore.

If it comes up again, ping me and I'll jump back into the problem :)

Happy learning!
