A new player pointed out in global today that intro level "Hide the Hydrophobic" says "Some common hydrophobics are arginine, lysine, glutamate and glutamine. Can you figure out what contributes to their hydrophobicity?" However, those examples are all hydrophilic - we need different examples for hydrophobic.

The arrow from the above text points to a blue sidechain - which it should do for the next hint, but not for this hint. For this one it should point to an orange.

Thanks for pointing this out Susume, this should be fixed in the next patch.

It looks like the popup was corrected in 20180711-7bdda27475-win_x86-devprev, which was briefly released, but then recalled. The attached screenshot shows the new wording.

The popup now points to a tyrosine, and mentions alanine, valine, leucine, and phenylalanine as being hydrophobic.

Still fixed in 20180725-d14dae34c3-win_x86-devprev, which looks good to go. Closing this feedback.
