This is my third report of the same phenomenon (one, two) and it's the same deal. The sidebar list items look like they're a list to a visual user. However, a screen reader will be unable to interpret this block as a list, because it's marked up as if each line was a separate paragraph. Please change this to use <li> elements inside a <ul>.

<div class="s-sidebarwidget--content d-block">
    <p>Good moderators often:</p>

This has been fixed. I replaced the arrows with a list on both places you've mentioned. I believe those are the only ones.

  • Thanks again! (I think any other instances of the arrows for lists besides those two have already been fixed.) :)
