Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It seems that if I put carriage returns into chat messages, the chats don't honor the star or double star markup.

Question: Is this the right place to post such bugs?

This is not a bug - it is by-design. Anything with carriage returns is assumed to be (for example) a paste from some other source, so markdown doesn't necessarily apply.

If you want to post a few (separate) lines, just post it as a few subsequent messages.
