So far ive tried to fix my capitalization, tryed to put them in the right tags hoping that it would run via that, but nothing atm

Sometimes a blue background will show up but its not very consistent,

I think its because my script isnt with in the <body> Tags.

Tried switching some things up but nothing seemed to fix anything, i just get the scoreboard there isnt any errors in NetBeans, so im not sure atm.
