Something I am considering is using something like Markdown
instead of bbCode in DS8. May not go with markdown specifically, but if not Markdown it'd be something similar. Some reasons why:
- Easier to write in your own text editor
- The 'code' is generally more readable
- Stackoverflow, Wikipedia, and others use some flavor of this basic markup, so having a basic knowledge of it is useful beyond DS.
- That also means a new member is probably more likely to know Markdown than bbCode
- I like it better than bbCode.
For the most part though, it's probably going to come down to personal preference. So what do you guys think?
