General code coach questions

Hey! Rather new to all of this and had a few questions about the "code coach" segment. It appears to be a rather new addition? If so is it sticking around or is it a timed event? I've been having a blast with the problems so far but would love to see other peoples approaches to them. Is there something I'm missing? I thought it might unlock a comment section after you completed the tasks but I haven't found any.

It looks like it will replace the "Coding Challenges" section permanently (or so I hope). Why do I think so? Because I've seen people hinting this (outdated) section would come back with a brand new format. I guess this is it. Anyway, the comment section you mention is a great idea. You should send your feedback at [email protected]

As for the seeing other people's attempts we got a "maybe" but not likely since people will just copy-paste for easy XP. XP is, for some reason, very important in this community so doubtful solutions would be visible soon, if ever. Doesnt stop us from sharing solutions by other means though.

「HAPPY TO HELP」 I could see it working if they showed comments ONLY after you complete the challenge. That way it doesn’t tell you how to do it, but only shows you how to potentially do it better

Jax the problem is that you would be able to see solutions for other programming languages after completing only one of them. Even if we had different comment sections for different languages, people could just post codes in other languages there.

To show the output, use the console command of your programming language. Same for input. Examples for C#: - Input : Console.ReadLine(); - Output : Console.WriteLine(yourVarHere);

I’m very confused as of how to show the output to the questions. I tried to use a function but the input from the question doesn’t go through my code.
