Python Django Forms Forms Create a Validator

Do not know why I got Bummer

Not sure why the code failed

from django import forms

class LeadShareForm(forms.Form):
    email = forms.EmailField(validators=[not_treehouse])
    link = forms.URLField()
    honeypot = forms.CharField(widget=forms.HiddenInput, required=False)

    def clean_honeypot(self):
        honey = self.cleaned_data['honeypot']
        if len(honey):
            raise forms.ValidationError('Bad robot!')
        return honey

def not_treehouse(value: str):
    vv =value.strip(" ").lower()
    if vv.endswith("@teamtreehouse.com"):
      raise forms.ValidationError("error")

So close!! The validator function needs to be defined before it's referred to by the class. Move the not_treehouse definition above the class and it should pass.

Post back if you have more questions. Good Luck!!
