[#231] JavaScript - Not getting a badge for Getting Started with Programming


<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at.>

<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
I completed Getting Started with Programming for the JavaScript course, but it is not giving me a badge. Other sections of the course give a badge as expected, but resubmitting every part of this section to completion multiple times has done nothing. It just immediately prompts me to start the next section. I have never done this course previously on this account, so it is not already in my badge list either. What else can I do, or is this an issue with Codecademy?


Replace this line with your code.
No code. Just not getting a badge.

<do not remove the three backticks above>

Try resetting the last exercise in that section and then redoing it.

If that still doesn’t work, on this page https://www.codecademy.com/learn/javascript, could you take a screenshot like the one below.

Already done so several times. Tried again just now, and no change. Thank you anyway.

Note: I have also tried redoing it on a different browser, but no luck there either.

Edit: Here’s the requested screenshot.

I’ll put in a bug report for this. If I hear anything back I’ll let you know.

Could you let me know:

  • what operating system you are using
  • which web browsers you’ve tried
  • are you on a home/school/work network
  • do you have an ad blocker on?

Thank you for the quick replies! I appreciate it.

I am using Windows 10. I have tried Chrome version 49 and Firefox version 42. I am on a home network. I do have ad blocker on, but so far it has not affected other sections from giving a badge, so I don’t think that is it. I just tried turning off the ad blocker as well and tried resubmitting the section again, but still no badge.

Thanks Ripley, I just have to ask all those questions for the report.
