Where do we submit incorrect questions to be fixed?

I have run into a few questions that I believe don't accept the correct answers (or they are ambiguous, or maybe I just don't get it). For example there is a question _____ is the vertical space between lines of text.

I have tried answering this with both "leading" and "Leading" and both show as incorrect. I am fairly certain that it is correct but want to confirm if I should submit the question to be fixed or if I am just wrong.

just to the right there is "Have technical questions? If you're experiencing what appears to be a bug or something that doesn't seem to be working correctly, please contact support directly."

So best thing is to contact them or quite often people just post the details (try including the exact lesson your working on and if need the code) here and someone will usually come up with the answer quite fast.

Shane Delmore -

When having an issue with a quiz/code challenge, in order to be able to help you require 3 things:

  • The link to quiz/code challenge
  • The instructions for question you are having issue with
  • Any (and all) answers you tried that came back as incorrect

Very helpful, thanks.

Shane Delmore By the way, Line-height is the vertical space between lines of text. (Line-height is the CSS Property). Hope this helps.

James, The article was of interest, but didn't change anything. From the last paragraph in that article "Leading vs. Line-height: Leading is the vertical space between lines of text, while tracking is the adjustment of horizontal spacing on individual lines of text, to create better readability between words."

The sentence on that page "Leading is the vertical space between lines of text" is the same sentence I have in the Ducket HTML and CSS book as well as what I see in other articles, but still comes back as an incorrect answer to that question.

Shane Delmore - Like I previously said, it's kinda hard to troubleshoot your issue without having a link to the question you are having an issue with, so I can try it out myself.

In any case if you want to submit a QA issue, then you can contact the team directly as Phil Rice suggested, send an email to help@teamtreehouse.com they will let you know what info they need in order to be able to help you.

Maybe Guil Hernandez can chime in on the distinction between leading and line-height.

I don't see links to the questions, where do I find them? When I am on the question the url is http://teamtreehouse.com/library/enhancing-typography. There aren't that many questions in the quiz, every other time I take it I end up with the question but they are somewhat randomized.
