@ashfurrow Being that this instance has more folks using technology, is it possible to support basic Markdown formatting? Does Mastodon even allow that?
By basic, I mean **bold**, _italics_, [description][link-id] and code blocks indented by 4 spaces (backtick fenced code blocks would be even better).
So let's ignore the triple-backquote code fences. The main reason I brought this up is the lack of monospace for code blocks..
Even if 4-space-indented text is recognized as code blocks (monospace fonts).. just that.. bare minimum, then code snippet exchanges would look much better on Mastodon.
.. and that also wouldn't bother the folks on instances that doesn't render the indented text as monospace. WDYT?
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
