I just saw the bounty help page and it seems that someone decided to use a bulleted list for these statements:

Extract from bounty page

I believe that those list items should be changed to a more homogenous format.

This is how it looks in my screen:

(is a 1024x768 image)

Now, I expect it to looks like this:

enter image description here

As you can see, the bullets start using slight to the right margin opposed to normal test (p tags) starts, and the text is aligned a bit more to the right.

This happens due the lack of <ul> tags englobing the <li> tags, hence it takes the <div> tag as point of reference for the margins. If you are saying "But Chrome/ium looks good", Chromium is broken. Firefox is displaying the broken source code, Chromium just tries to "fix" them.

I'm expecting it to look like the What is reputation? page. And if it's possible add some kind of title like "Caracteristics:" or "so, the bounty is:" or "what happens when I set a bounty:", dunno here.

  • For other readers: Look at the What is reputation? help article and its lists, and then look at the What is a bounty? help article and its lists. The bulleted list styling is a little messed up. @Braiam, maybe instead of requesting this be turned into paragraphs, you could just request the CSS be fixed and tag this question with [bug] [css] [help-center]?

  • Nice example, yeah, I'm expecting it to looks like the What is reputation? page. And if it's possible add some kind of title.

  • I would upvote this if it were a request to fix the buggy CSS, but as a request to change these so they're no longer a list at all... well, this question is already downvoted enough I don't need to downvote it further. :) Sep 4, 2013 at 5:10
  • @JonathanHobbs I was under the assumption that it was a intended paragraph.

  • Doesn't display like that in Chromium 30. Bullets are aligned with the left text margin.

  • @Mat Chromium is broken. But you might like to see the source code, it starts using <li> tags immediately instead using <ol> or <ul> as said in the MDN page. Firefox is displaying the broken source code, chromium just try to "fix" them.

There was a <ul>, but it was missing a </ul>, which caused the formatting to be a little off. It's fixed now.


They used bullets, but they did not use a list of bullets.

They have:

<li>Shark fin soup</li>
<li>Palm oil</li>
<li>Blood diamonds</li>

But should be using:

<li>Canvas bags</li>
<li>Public transport</li>

The lack of indent you expect from normal lists comes from this minor detail.

  • ARGGGGKDJKD! You just got the problem 12 secs before :S
