The Comment You're Replying To

I have added two new editors, Zied Haddad and Ola Sassersson. I have also removed two editors, Jeremy Gabriel Good and Tony Quintanilla, because neither one has logged on in years. Despite accepting my request to be editors when I took over this site, neither one has logged on since before I took over in late 2015. So, I don't think either one is interested in continuing to be an editor. Those who are already editors should have the passwords for the database, SSH, SCP, and SFTP. The new editors have not been given these yet, because they are still new, but they have gained editor privileges while signed into the website.

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>

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

Third Level header <H3>
