Failing on commit methodology

What happens

I’m currently failing on understanding what would be the steps to successfully commit a change and upload a new challenge

What do you understand or find about that problem

Currently these are the steps I’m following to commit and create a merge request

  1. Cloning the repository to my local Linux machine with git clone
  2. Configuring my user and email with git config rjceledon; git config
  3. Changing to my username branch git checkout rjceledon
  4. Making changes in /challenges/hack/tryhackme folder adding a new challenge
  5. Adding the folder with git add blog/ (blog is the folder inside /challenges/hack/tryhackme which I want to add)
  6. Making the commit with the needed format git commit and then chall\sol(hack) #0 tryhackme, & blog (130) and saving changes in nano
  7. Pushing the change with git push origin rjceledon

Then I get the Merge Request link which I use but it gets cancelled

You make any workaround? What did you do?

I tried to delete the branch, change the commit, but I’m failing in the steps I have to follow.

I need help with

Am I following the correct steps to make a commit and subsequent merge request? Now I can see that my username branch exists in the repository and that’s causing me issues when trying to commit a new change since the files already exists and not sure if I can delete those and start again from the beginning.

Hoping someone could help me, thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome,

Sorry for the delay in responding, we are currently troubleshooting some minor issues in the repository. In about 1-2 hours you will be able to try again to start uploading your challenges. And a little hint, I’ve seen that your branch might not be updated with the master, check this before doing anything…
