@noobyprogrammer,
You are using a semi-colon-; on your IF ELSE-IF ELSE-IF statment-structure.....
For Javascript the semi-colon-; is an End-of-Statement indicator
causing the rest of the IF ELSE-IF not to be recognized as being part of the same structure

Please read
http://www.codecademy.com/forum_questions/559dcb4be39efe550f00006b
and concentrate on:

  • the creation of the compare function
  • the truth-table
  • the build of the IF ELSE-IF statement structure as part of the compare FUNCTION-BODY
  • the execution of the compare function (keeping in mind that the return statement is used )
