Stuck in Creating Friendships

I'm not sure if this forum is for helping out people who are stuck within courses. I will just give it a try since I'm not getting any further on my track.

In the ROR track Creating Friendships I'm stuck with a couple of errors I can't seem to solve.

If someone give me a tip on where the problem lies it would be of great help. Here are some example's of error messages: ruby -I test test/unit/user_test.rb

1) Error: test: User should have many friends. (UserTest): ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError: ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError

2) Error: test: User should have many user_friendships. (UserTest): ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError: ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError

3) Error: test_a_user_should_enter_a_first_name(UserTest): ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError: ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError

and it goes on to 8:

8) Error: test_user_can_have_a_correctly_formatted_profile_name(UserTest): ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError: ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError

Is there a better place to ask these kind of questions?

Keep getting fixtures errors in my code unfortunately. Is there anyone who know how to fix the fixture errors?

I have the same error.

ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError: ActiveRecord::Fixture::FormatError

I think it's because you need to use spaces instead of tabs in the statuses.yml file. I corrected the statuses.yml and it's working now!

Read about fixtures at http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveRecord/Fixtures.html

one: content: MyText user: jason

two: content: MyText user: jason

3 tests, 4 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors, 0 skips

Pro Tip: I figured out you can download the project files and look for discrepancies there to see if you missed anything.
