I love the site, however:
- It's just not the same without Markdown
- How am I supposed to get noticed?
We weren't willing to open the
MARKDOWN PANDORA'S BOX!!!!1!
I am open to hearing opinions on this though.
No kidding. Nothing like pasting links into "Projects and Links" only to find them displayed raw, with the ends (most relevant part!) cut off.
Don't need full-on embedded HTML support, don't even need the more complex parts of markdown... code, headers, lists and linking would go a long way.
@Jeff, In response to your post,
I don't see why you wouldn't allow markdown to let us at least approximate traditional CV formatting (headers, bold/italics, bullets, etc). But if "pandora's box" means abusive use of formatting(?)... if a user wants to make themselves look bad, that's their choice.
I haven't used the site, yet so I'm not sure I can speak intelligently about it. But what am I missing?
I would like it to just work. The same parsing code that's used on Stack Overflow should be used on Careers. I don't want to think about what works over here and what works over there.
I understand your hesitance to open Pandora's box with version 1. It might not be a bad idea to start out with the same restrictions you have on new users. I would be fine with that (for a while).
