BBCode vs. Markdown


Recommended Posts

I can change the forums to use Markdown instead of BBCode. There are a lot of pros and cons, but you can probably find them online.


In the end, I believe it comes down to a religious debate. I can also look at making it possible to use both, but if the community is heavily leaning towards one, it might not be worth the trouble :)


Edit: Also first poll test.


Edit edit: Stopped the poll because MarkDown will now work in cooperation with BBCodes, as best as possible.

I'll be honest, I don't really care. As long as there's a formatting popup window to give me hints on how to format, then BBCode or Markdown makes no difference to me. So, with that said, I should mention that the "BBCode" link down the bottom should target _new or _blank or whatever it is, rather than using the current window and potentially losing what you've typed in your post so far.

Good catch, I'll get that fixed asap.
