    Everything worked perfectly well for me :) Gmail can hide many e-mails, putting them in I-don’t-know-where, but search inside your email box enables you to access the email from you. You need to search keyword ‘skillcrush’.
    After looking at your checklist, I think that I am 2/3 webdesigner! That’s good to know :) thank you for this :)
