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.

Wow, we can write `inline code`! This is pretty _cool_. [linky](http://google.com) And BBcode still works.

I prefer BBCode myself. However that doesn't stop you from giving an [markdown][/markdown] BBCode option to work with or might be a plugin/mod for phpBB to allow the user to specify the mode of their post.

Having a [markdown] tag would kind of defeat the point of it being quick and easy to use. Here TRON, try this out: `` `code` ``.

EDIT: Having BBCode around is good for cross-posting on the GG forums.

I agree with TRON, I myself prefer BBCode over Markdown (Ask luis how many times he had to yell at me for incorrectly posting markdown on issues XD)

I'm trying to implement both atm actually, I think BBCode will have precedence so if there is any clash, Markdown will be the one who suffers, but atm it works *pretty fine*.
