Your latest code has two issues. The main issue is you are counting the number of users who have an online property set to false and that is not what the challenge instructions tell you to do.

The other issue (which is hidden from the FCC console but not the browser’s console) is your console.log statement references a users variable, but there is no such variable defined in the global scope (where the console.log statement resides). This is causing the code to fail.
