Lines 6 and 7 you included a list containing different kinds of yes and no. However, on line 8 in the if statement, you did
if yesorno == yess:

but you probably want to do:

if yesorno in yess: # this checks if the input of the user is in the list

same thing on line 17, change it from if yesorno == noo: to:

if yesorno in noo: # checks if user input is in the noo list

Lemme know if you need anymore help or if I was unclear! :)

@Imthebestthe Hi,

wdym by "the def thing"? def is for functions, so you can keep everything in one file if you want. Looks like you did the function on line 33 correctly but you forgot the () after the function name. Correct version:

def loadingbar():
  toolbar_width = 50

Does this solve the problem? ;)

yh but now it breaks with a error

Do you know why this is happening?

Hum, are you sure you defined it already? Can you link the repel so I can take a look at it? Thanks! :) @Imthebestthe

At the line when you work with yesorno, 2 lists and the ifs,

if yesorno == yess:
# Other code here, I will not show it

Just replace the == with in, like this:

if yesorno in yess:
# Other code

It should work.
