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?

1 Answer 1


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.
