My code is timing out.
If you come across the error message: Your code run has timed out - it might indicate we're having a site wide problem.
You should first check our status page to see if there's an ongoing incident (a link to the status page also appears in the bottom of the error message). If there is an ongoing incident - you might want to subscribe to receive updates. This way, we'll let you know via email once the problem is resolved.
Another common cause for this error message is writing code that never ends, like an infinite loop.
If you have written an infinite loop, it will cause your code runner to lock up, and you will no longer be able to run any code. To fix this:
- Make sure you only have one Dataquest tab open.
- Click the Dashboard option from the dropdown menu in the top-right corner of your page.
Open a different mission and run a simple command, eg
- Click back to your Dashboard.
- Navigate back to the mission, fix the error with your code, and then try running your code again.
