Or - What can Happen when any class fails to keep up to date and omits essential information from the first lesson
By fixing all of the code that this process identifies most of the errors that are asked about on forums would no longer occur. The main type of error that may still occur in the code if the above validations are passed are logic errors where the valid instructions in the code do not match the processing that is required to produce the desired result. To find and fix logic errors you need to actually run tests of the code and use the browser console and debugger to work out which piece of the code isn't doing what you expected.
Now beginners may not be able to work out how to fix all of the errors that the validator reports. In that case if they post a question on a forum specifying their code and the validation error they don't know how to fix they will make it much easier for others to help them to fix their code than if they posted it and just said that it doesn't work. First it demonstrates that they have made an attempt to find and fix the errors themselves and secondly the question is more specific making it easier to provide an answer without having to spend too much time investigating - which makes getting an answer more likely.
