@lizhi99 Your post doesn't make it clear what the problem is, is there any sort of error message, what behavior is not happening.
Or what behavior is happening that shouldn't.
@lizhi99 You may want to go the chinese help gitter

@sjames1958gm bro need help how did you approach the random quote machine
Stephen James
@sjames1958gm
Mar 12 2018 17:03
@gishy1 Well I did it with an internal array, not using an API and then just randomly selected from that.
If I did it again, I'd probably use forismatic API
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Mar 12 2018 17:12
i think using an API is the best solution, because getting API practice is invaluable

@lizhi99 if you press the markdown help button located to the bottom right of the chat text entry box, you'll find a menu with effects/keystrokes. :)
  • if you hover over the button, you'll see its identification

Hello I am unable to sign in to beta.freecodecamp.org. Everytime I open the activation link it tells me that it has already expired and to request a new one. The new one expires before I can user it as well. Could this be a issue with daylight saving time?

@biko-the-bird you may have more luck asking in https://gitter.im/FreeCodeCamp/Contributors, that's where the people who build fcc hang out

okay here is a non-math question
what to put in my html for a social media icon, and how to make it fancy?
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Mar 12 2018 20:16
what do you mean by fancy?
and, have you looked at the font-awesome icons?
Andy
@AMBONOLA
Mar 12 2018 20:16
Yes I have and I would use those but I'm not exactly sure of how to format it
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Mar 12 2018 20:17
are you doing this in codepen?
Andy
@AMBONOLA
Mar 12 2018 20:17
yep
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Mar 12 2018 20:17
one sec
it's as easy as this
one thing to note, you have to import the font-awesome library first Settings => CSS => Quick Add => Font Awesome
err ... you might have to search for font awesome in this little box
Andy
@AMBONOLA
Mar 12 2018 20:20
what if I wanted to use a different library? I still import it correct? Is there anything I would need to put in my stylesheets?
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Mar 12 2018 20:20
image.png
if you import this way in codepen you don't need to add anything in your stylesheets
Andy
@AMBONOLA
Mar 12 2018 20:21
oh okay
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Mar 12 2018 20:21
if you wanted to import it in a stand-alone html file you could just add <link href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.0.3/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
like this

What do you guys suggest? Make one repo on github, and have multiple folders there with each FCC project, or just make a new repo for each FCC project? Purely for the purpose of hosting/showing your code. Doesn't really matter? Or probably better practice to just make a separate repo for each project?
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Mar 12 2018 22:17
i did separate repos for mine, but when i'm done I'll probably combine them all into a single repo

Mar 12 2018 22:19
@thekholm80 yeah seems a little messy to have them all sprawling around
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Mar 12 2018 22:20
i liked getting the practice of creating & pushing to git as i built each project
but i really don't need a million repos of FCC projects when i'm done
