Hi Brittany,

Very nice.

A couple of thoughts for you;

  • On the third level I noticed that, because you are using names, there is a capital letter. This gives the user more of a clue as to the first letter
  • On a very related note, if you enter “gollum” for example, you are wrong. It might be best to offer a case-insensitive validation, e.g.
if(input.ToLower() == password.ToLower())
    // case-insensitive matching

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

Very nice ascii art too, I especially liked the flames. :fire:

Thanks! Good points all around. Didn’t catch that as my husband (aka tester) is fairly finicky and insists on caps where they’re needed anyway.

Thinking I might opt to all caps for display (because I can’t stand proper nouns/names to be lower case if I can help it) then allow for any casing from input.

No worries.

In the case of all caps, just pop .ToUpper() on th end of the string that is going to be output, e.g;

string message = "Hello World!");



Thanks! Knew I could get there (I can putz around with Java, figured it wouldn’t be too different in C#), but this makes life easier. :slight_smile:
