Adding markdown as an additional option to a forum that always used bbcode, or add some more (unlikely to break existing posts) formatting codes to the existing bbcode? :blobcatthinking:

Attempting to use libcmark to render a slighty modified Markdown dialect (without inline images and HTML, but with ||spoiler|| tags):

Miserable failure.

@ayo I think most people are familiar with Markdown nowadays, even if they don't know it yet. There's also plenty of Markdown parsers in plenty of languages, making it easier to support, though this may not be relevant since you already have bbcode implemented, but not Markdown.
