We’ve also had some complaints from our neurodivergent users about infinite scrolling.

Ah thanks! So I do mean AA compliant but not Alcoholics Anonymous compliant!

I’d say we’re pretty close, but we’re not completely compliant at this time. It’s definitely possible that we’ll be compliant within the next year.
