Sucks.

We have a forum for such things.

I’m pretty sure, based on past responses, it would be a waste of time.

Because there have been no updates & improvements of late, right?

Though I seem to recall Jay has seemingly addressed a lot of issues in there, yes?

I’m pretty sure his feedback to our Markdown Sucks feedback was “too bad get used to it.”

Maybe he also said an advanced editor was coming some day, so in that case it would render the Markdown Sucks complaint moot, but until that time, Markdown Sucks. This is the only forum I’ve ever been on that uses it. And so to be clear, the reason Markdown Sucks is not because it’s Markdown (which Sucks), but because this is the only site using it. And so I have to use completely different tags to make shit work. And it’s pretty aggravating to be on another site and put ![] into a post and get ![] back instead of an image. Or to be here and put [img][/img] and get [img][/img] back instead of an image. And so I have to think to myself, “Ok, right now I’m at OT.com, so I have to use ![] instead of [img][/img].” And that sucks.

Any improvements recently made are independent of this issue. They’re also independent of the unread posts feature, which is also on every other forum I’ve ever used, and a feature I’ve been asking for over nine years now.
