The page for ordering a t-shirt as a contributor does not contain any labels for the text input fields. These labels are provided via the value attribute, which is inappropriate according to the web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 by the W3C. Instead, proper label tags with the @for attribute pointing at the ID for the associated text input must be used to label these. The used value attribute is not supported as a labeling mechanism for assistive technologies.
Also if javascript is disabled, the color on the label-element is way to dark. foreground: #484848
