ReferenceError: Function is not defined (JavaScript)

Okay, this is weird… I’ve been invited to two Repls. One is a NodeJS Express Repl, and the other is a Python Flask Repl with vanilla JS in the static/scripts/ folder. In both of them, I have gotten a ReferenceError for a function that has been defined earlier in the file… The Express one worked literally 5 seconds before I got the error, all I changed was a simple if statement, which has nothing to do with the line of code I got the error on…

Repl link/Link to where the bug appears:

Screenshots, links, or other helpful context:
Error I’m getting, don’t think it’ll help though…

  const submissions = await getSubmission();

Node.js v18.16.1
repl process died unexpectedly: exit status 1

And this has only been happening kinda recently (maybe because I started using JS more recently lol?)
For the second Repl I linked it’s happened twice, on different functions.

You wrote await getSubmission() you meant to say await getSubmissions()


How… It worked before :sob: where did the s go???

well that’s not the problem for the other Repl cause it’s definitely spelled right… oh well Idk
