10/11 Ending up, what am i doing wrong?



<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at.>
pyg = ‘ay’

original = raw_input(‘Enter a word:’)

if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
word = original.lower()
first = word[0]
new_word = word + first + pyg
new_word = new_word[1:len(new_word)]
print new_word
print ‘empty’

<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
Enter a word:ctsay this comes up when i run this code. I haven’t entered a word.

<What do you expect to happen instead?>


Replace this line with your code.

<do not remove the three backticks above>


It may be an interface problem at issue so there is no workaround. You could try hard input and comment out the raw_input() statement.

    # original = raw_input(‘Enter a word:’)
    original = "surprise"


It’s not letting me pass. So it’s an issue with codecademy not my actual code?


That would be frustrating more of nuisance than actually helping people to learn. As i don’t even know if what i’m doing is correct even though i’m following direction and researching into forms. It sucks that I have to come here to post to validate my code which I don’t want to do.


Posting here is not such a bad thing. It helps you learn, especially since you have poured your effort in up front, before asking for help. Learning in a vacuum is a very hard way to go. Collaborative learning is far more beneficial, and more is learned in the short and long run.

Did the hard input did not work?


It did thank for that. I’m on 11/11 and got this when I tested it.
File “python”, line 6
print = “pleasefixthiscrap”
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

It let me pass, but hopefully you guys fix it so it won’t be this buggy for other users.


print cannot take an assignment.

print "some text"


print (some_object)
