Why do I get this error: Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token else app.js:26 ?

"use strict";

I'm going to Comment instead of Answer here because I'm still learning to understand the DOM more deeply. But I do see some syntax and inconsistency issues with your code. In your if/else if statements you're using semicolons in the wrong places. You're also arranging them out of order. I'd advise going through the Conditionals Workshop to reinforce syntax rules.

Hi Otto, my subscription is paused right now, and I don't have access to the video. The instructor has put a semicolon after the if conditional? As in: if (li.className == "responded");?
