Github API changed - should now work

Hey everyone,

Wynn made some changes to the course and it should now be up-to-date with the new API requirements. If you've started the course before, please reset your code and try again - this should help you further!

You're not missing anything. Codecademy has messed up with this one! if you replace the last line with puts "Hi, my username is api-padawan" it will work.

I went and created my own API token in GitHub, pasted it in and saw that the code actually worked, but it still gave me the error: "Oops, try again. Did you accidentally delete the token string? Click the red Reset button, then click Run!"**

Doesn't work with Codecademy's token. Got on github, made a personal access token and copied it in there and it works (spits out me username).

API key is broken.

Cannot complete course. I even generated my own personal token from Github and pasted it in but unfortunately the grading script throws an error if the token line is modified.

Tried this today - just wanted to update and say that the API key is still broken for this exercise (I used Marinthea's workaround above to get through). Thanks for all your hard work, Codecademy!
