Like the billions of other users, I had a little trouble getting past exercise 5 of 7, and none of the related posts were helpful to ME, though they've helped others. The 2nd instruction area remained red until I confirmed AGAIN that I was in the right directory. So, if you're having trouble getting through this lesson, use ls, and confirm you're in the personal-website directory. If not, use cd (or even cd personal-website if you can) to get there._
So, I make it past that point only to discover that Git shows the commits completed by CoderAPS. Can someone please explain to me why CoderAPS is showing as the account that committed to my repository? I do not like that at all. I did the work and I pushed it to Git. Why does another account get the credit for my site that I pushed to my git account?
Is this a thing CC does so that the world sees this lesson was done on codecademy? If so, I think you should find another way. IMHO,you aren't being fair to the users who worked hard to get through that crazy lesson. If we got through it, we deserve the credit for our hard work.
Is this a fluke? I doubt it because it happened twice.
Is it just sort of the program/info we used? The genesis of how the information got there?
Frankly, and again JMHO, Codecademy needs to seriously think about clarifying their instructions. Tons of people, including myself, had primarily the exact same or very similar issues on each exercise in this entire lesson. With that many people experiencing the same problems while FOLLOWING the instructions, it is clear something isn't quite right. In other words (for one consideration), let users know when they need to migrate to the appropriate directory instead of just instructing users to type this or that. We follow those instructions and they don't work because we aren't in the right place. Too much time is being wasted on this, and that's just ridiculous when clearer instructions would resolve the issues for many people. Just sayin'. A little clarification can go a long way.
Anyway, why is CoderAPS listed, and not my account name????
