The Comment You're Replying To

The problem with exhibiting HTML tags verbatim is the one I know what it is. Whoever programmed the comment system needs to correct it in the following way: Any code that outputs some text inside of a HTML TEXTAREA must use htmlentities() or htmlspecialchars() function in order to convert the text before sending it to the client. The client will convert it back to the proper way when sending the form back to the server. This also needs to be corrected in the submission forms for member submitted game information page.

Also, there is still many more files that have not yet been converted to UTF-8, and still needs converted (however, most files are plain ASCII and do not need converted).

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
