Quick question: I have an array of reserved words that I want to share across most of my models so I can do something like this in the models: validates_exclusion_of :username, :in => RESERVED_WORDS, :message => "This username is a reserved word. Please choose another." Here is a sampling of the the array: RESERVED_WORDS = %w( blog blogs forum forums search login logout signup signout register help store ) Should I just subclass AR and then extend my models from this base class or is there a way to stick it in one of the config files like environment.rb? Thanks, Zack

Yes, you can put constants in environment.rb and they'll be available everywhere. -- -- Tom M.

Thanks Tom. I thought that would be the easiest. I just didn't know if it is the "best practices" way to do it. Thanks again, Zack
