officially the worst kata on this entire website
take down please
Literally trash description tbh
waste of time, terrible desicrption
Ahh shit kata preparing one for dealing with morons.
The instructions are hardly clear. And the problem should mention that the original names for the keys shouldn't be tampered with, otherwise the test cases will fail
Nice to check syntax knowledg but nowadays i'm a bit worried about male and female part... Well, you know, that tolerance.
Instructions were unclear for beginners.
Explain this is a dictionary and that you're fixing the value assignment.
I wasted 10 minutes assuming the terrible value names (1stname) and inconsistencies was the issue. Address this.
The most stupid kata
dunno about wording here, but i agree in principle. Instructions made me edit. Thanks for leaving the comment tho!
Solved in seconds due to obvious, syntactic reasons, no thanks to the rather lacking description, mind you. Why try for "amend" when the simple "mend" would amply suffice? Do you think you're Oxford's Digest or something?
The "actual" tests are under the Submit button.
Yes, you must write your own example tests. This is not an issue.
Hi ~ this word does not allow one to "make just any changes" and it certainly does not only mean "to add to". It is specifically inclined towards improvement, exacty such as you would expect in a bugfix kata. Meanwhile, this would be a better word instead:
verb [ with obj. ]
make corrections and improvements to (a text).
• alter (something) in such a way as to correct it
Beyond that one word, and keeping in mind bugfix kata often rely on TDD and may be differently structured (note the lack of a direct example of a correct answer in the sample tests), I would honestly like to know what your precise wording for the description of this kata ought to be without giving away the answer, thanks.
If you look at the evidence, all the comments, then your statement 'the directions are clear' seems to be false. Just adding the definition of one of the words to a reply doesn't prove the directions are clear. Actually, you CAN'T even make just any changes (the definition you provided for amend) to the text in this kata - you must keep the exact words. One of the comments defined amend to ONLY add to the text, which I guess would make it clearer (provided that is the definition in your head)... But then that's the point, context and clarity in communication isn't just using what YOU think is clear, it's using what provides clarity to the hearer/reader. I'm guessing with the attitude of 'this is clear, look at the definition of this word', a software developer can make some pretty useless programs and always blame it on the user requests or on user error :)
the directions are clear: Can you amend this object so that its properties comprise only vaild identifiers?
Can you amend this object so that its properties comprise only vaild identifiers?
make minor changes in (a text) in order to make it fairer, more accurate, or more up-to-date.
