Everything takes 10 minutes to load before it says what i put was incorrect


#1

ok so even though i did this correctly it takes 10 minutes to load and then puts an x because it doesnt feel like trying to figure out whether my answer was either correct or correct your website sux

pyg = 'ay'

original = raw_input('Enter a word:')

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

raw_input() is a function which prompts your for input, if you don’t input anything, it will take a long time.

try switching to google chrome instead of explorer. It worked for me in a previous issue because it handles all of the code better.


#4

This wasn’t working for me either, using Chrome, until I hit F5 to refresh and tried again, then it worked.

Thank you! The hard refresh worked for me.

F5 solved my trouble too. Thanks!
