# HELP! Reindeer Tender

Hi… I know that um…

But I have a different problem.

Here is my code:

``````# This is the array of pen positions
penPositions = [ {"x":20,"y":24}, {"x":28,"y":24}, {"x":36,"y":24}, {"x":44,"y":24}, {"x":52,"y":24} ]

# Use this array to keep track of each pen's reindeer.
penOccupants = [ None, None, None, None, None, ]

# And this array contains our reindeer.
friends = hero.findFriends()

# Figure out which reindeer are already in their pens.
for deerIndex in range(len(friends)):
reindeer = friends[deerIndex]

# For each position check if it matches a reindeer.
for penIndex in range(len(penPositions)):
penPos = penPositions[penIndex]

if penPos.x == reindeer.pos.x and penPos.y == reindeer.pos.y:
# Put the reindeer in occupants at penIndex
penOccupants[penIndex] = reindeer
# Remove the reindeer from the friends array.
friends[reindeer] = None
# break out of the inner loop here:
break
pass

# Assign the remaining reindeer to new positions.
for deerIndex in range(len(friends)):
# If the reindeer is null, use continue:
if not deerIndex:
continue

# Look for the first pen with nothing.
for occIndex in range(len(penOccupants)):
# If there is nothing, the pen is open:
if not penOccupants[occIndex]:
# Put the reindeer in the occupants array.
occupants[occIndex] = friends[deerIndex]
# Command the reindeer to move to the pen.
hero.command(friends[deerIndex], "move", target)
# break out early so we don't reassign:
break
pass

``````

What’s happening is that the reindeer-
Don’t do anything.

Help would be appreciated,

I can wait

I found a few mistakes:
In the first for,

You should remove the reindeer from the friends array (which is deerIndex), so it should be `friends[deerIndex]=None`.

Here, you should add the reindeer in the occupants array, and here, you should use what you did in the first `for`s, the `occupants[occIndex]` should become a reindeer, which is `occupants[occIndex] = reindeer`.
And the final mistake, is here:

Where do you command the reindeer move? Try to think of this yourself.

And sorry for the late reply.
