Instructions Need Fixing

I put it here in JavaScript because that is the current cert course I’m on. Let me just say that there are times in here where the example given is so vastly different from what is required to move on. There are multiple times in the 2.5 courses I’ve done on this block where the required code is expected to be on a new line without the idea being communicated by the instructions at any level. There are concepts that aren’t explained and once you have an understanding of that concept, the word used in the instructions is then used again without indicating it is out of that context leaving you stuck.

JavaScript is already hard, the fact that a solution can be offered based on faulty grammar or examples and that it leaves you on stand by until you can find a post on the forum where the hint isn’t so vague that politicians would be proud is frustrating.

if you can mention specific steps abd specific issues that would be really useful, the staff and contributors are working to fix everything that is receiving negative feedback

I’m currently taking note on the Music player documenting the instruction’s grammar and if applicable how the example of the introduced concept steers us in the wrong direction.

A post was split to a new topic: Color hue slider

If you have a question about a specific challenge as it relates to your written code for that challenge and need some help, click the Ask for Help button located on the challenge (it looks like a question mark). This button only appears if you have tried to submit an answer at least three times.

The Ask for Help button will create a new topic with all code you have written and include a link to the challenge also. You will still be able to ask any questions in the post before submitting it to the forum.

Thank you.

Is there a place on the forum for people to post feedback like this, or are they encouraged to open github issues?

We have been getting general and specific feedback on the new beta projects, I think it might be good to have a place for that to land. I’m not sure if it should go into Contributors or somewhere else.

github issues are the best place where to leave feedback, but the forum is not a bad blace either

Open a new topic please.
