    Markdown- a great and popular solution for writing pretty formatted documents quickly.

    Already used on some common platforms like:
    - GitHub / GitLab / Bitbucket etc.
    - Jira
    - Slack
    - Reddit

    To point out just one of the problems with the current solution for text formatting:
    Right now code blocks support C#, Boo, and Javascript languages. Two of those are no longer supported in the engine. Unity as of today uses at least JSON, UXML, USS, and C#.

    Adding support for markdown in Unity forums would greatly improve user experience.
    - most likely already familiar to a lot of users
    - ability to write richer posts and code examples
    - ability to present code in a clearer more readable way
    - inline code blocks
    - code blocks with support for more languages
