Hi guys

my son coded in Pharo 60


      dg8 := GameItem new;
                  name: 'Dragon Quest VIII : Journey Of The Cursed King';
                  console: 'PS2'.
       self assert: dg8 guessUrlPart equals:

and guess what he broke the system.

We should not accept such kind of behavior.
name: should not change the name of the class.

I do not know the solution but I fear when I will teach 160 students this fall.
We should make sure that Pharo is not a system only for experts!

any idea is welcome
