Why is task 1 no longer passing? I haven't changed that code at all.

As above, nothing has chnaged.

var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";
var userName = id.toUpperCase();
var username += '#' + lastName;
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

The error message is perhaps misleading.

What's happened is that instead of adding onto the "userName" variable, you used "var" to create an additional variable named "username" (with a lower-case "n").

Also, the last name needs to be converted to upper case just like you did for the "id".
