Re: GH community support for Markdown?

I don't think that GitHub Community, which runs on the Lithium Community platform, has support for  Markdown, let alone GitHub Flavoured Markdown. I know that there is a certain level of modification possible with Lithium Community based on some other community instances, but I'm not sure if a completely new text formatting processor is possible without special modifications.

+1 to the above. I think that's spot on. Updating.

Re: GH community support for Markdown?

I'm curious to know some of the reasons why github decided to use Lithium Community platform instead of something like https://www.discourse.org

@FanrayMedia Github says, "We are absolutely committed to open source and did investigate open source tools, but they didn’t provide the feature set that we needed for this forum."
