Hi. Working along a tutorial, I am trying to create a user for my application, and save it to a User database table. However, when I try to save the user (i.e. add a line to the User table) the Ruby console just returns false, with no explanation. Using *create *instead of *save *does the same. I have tried deleting the database and doing the migration again, but got the same result. How can I obtain more diagnostic on why the save to database is failing? Here a transcript from the console: Loading development environment (Rails 3.2.9) irb(main):001:0> user= User.new screen_name: "ginopino", real_name: "Gino Pilotino", password: "foobar", password_confirmation: "foobar" => #<User id: nil, screen_name: "ginopino", real_name: "Gino Pilotino", created_at: nil, updated_at: nil, password_digest: "$2a$10$T.cnOdhdXPyBt/iQPLGJXuWN62F8FoPgkX9UbXyEWqCh..."> irb(main):002:0> *user.save* ←[1m←[36m (0.0ms)←[0m ←[1mbegin transaction←[0m ←[1m←[35m (0.0ms)←[0m rollback transaction => *false* irb(main):004:0>

Thank you Craig, that resolved it. user.errors reminded me that I had imposed a constraint on the password length, and my password did not respect it.
