Stuck in infinite loop


Hey, I’m currently going through the python coding section. And i’m currently on: Strings & Console Output. String Formatting with %, Part 2. It’s step 15/16, and whenever I enter in the correct code, it gets stuck in an infinite loop and doesn’t move me over. I’ve talked to support, tried different web browsers, different Wi-Fi signals, even a different computer and it still will not move forward. I’ve also tried the “reset exercise” button but it still will not move me forward

The code i have put in is:

name = raw_input(“What is your name?”)
quest = raw_input(“What is your quest?”)
color = raw_input(“What is your favorite color?”)

print "Ah, so your name is %s, your quest is %s, "
“and your favorite color is %s.” % (name, quest, color)

Support has given up and directed me to the forums. Has anyone else run into this issue?


raw_input is a function which prompts you for input? You have to type your name, quest and favorite color in the prompt


I’m an idiot. Thanks. I’ve literally been stuck on this forever.


who did you spoke to?


I talked to lilian on and off for around a week or so


a codecademy pro advisor? That is weird, he should be able to help you
