Hi Malachi,

You have a couple little things going on.

1) You didn't properly close your input tag. This is how the input tag should look:

      <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name" /></input>

2) The opening text area tag is missing it's ending bracket ">". This is how it should look:

      <textarea id="comment" name="user_comment"/></textarea>

3) You don't want quotes around the button text. This is how it should look:

      <button>Submit comment</button>

4) The opening bracket of the closing form tag was chopped off in your code. It should look like this:


Hope this helps and happy coding!
