    Read the API doc for the String class. There are many methods there that will be useful to you.

    Can you recommend anything. I know how to make the string all lowercase. It is just that I don't know how to tell the program to accept the all lowercase answer as correct

    I know how to make the string all lowercase, I am having a problem telling the program to accept it. This is what I have, can somebody PLEASE tell me what I am doing wrong.
    public boolean isRightPlayer(String player, String Nickname) {
    boolean isRightPlayer = false;

    if (player == player.toLowerCase() && nickname == nickname.toLowerCase())
    isRightPlayer = true;

    return isRightPlayer;
    }
    If you'll explain what that method is supposed to do, maybe someone can tell you what it does.

    One quick way to find out is to test it. Call it with many different types of Strings and observe the results and see if they are what you want.

    private static void Correctly() {
    		setup();
    		if (!team.isRightPlayer("KeiTh SMITH", "hammer"))
    			System.out.println("Incorrectly case-rejected show: Keith");
    		if (!team.isRightNickname("HAMMER", "kEItH smith"))
    			System.out.println("Incorrectly case-rejected star: Keith");
    can't get the code to see that the two names are the same
    Please show some examples. Something like:
    System.out.println("test1: " + team.isRightPlayer("KeiTh SMITH", "hammer"));
    Then post the results and explain which should be true and which should be false

    Can you answer these questions about the isRightPlayer() method
    It will return true if ....
    It will return false if ....

    replace the ... with the condition(s) that describe when that value will be returned
