What the heck is a User story anyway?

Tell us what’s happening:
Basically, I just dont get what they are asking for ? They need to write instructions for the project that clearly define what it is that they want you to do…

I cant tell what the heck these stories are… howthey fit into the page…
If they are really asking for " id=“title” or do they want you to create a title ?
What the heck is a User story anyway ?

Yes. This should be inside the h1 tag

The user story describes the type of user, what they want and why.

In my own words, it means what is required in the output/code.

In my opinion, the phrase “user story” is misleading. Coming from a background as a writer I keep expecting it to be a narrative of some sort. It’s not. It’s the newest fad way of expressing software requirements. Nobody, user or otherwise, ever says “I’m seeing a header with an id=‘title.’” That’s bizarre. So just think of them as instructions. In the context of FCC that’s all they are – explicit instructions for passing the project tests.

Once I read through the User Story part and dug into it… it made more sense for me… Thank you for the direction and link for clarification !

Kallistrate, yes ! I agree… the process description was not helpful at all ! It was very confusing trying to figure out if they wanted some type of narrative , and how that was going to fit into a “Survey form” was just not intuitive at all.

Thanks for the input !
