: (Resolved) Change of wiki syntax
(2008-07-05 10:13) [#4757]
I am ready to deploy templating functionality here at SL. For it to work properly I'd like to change the syntax.
- sidebars would start with '=>' and '=<' instead of '|>' and '|<'
- change of escape character ('!') or headings '!' .. '!!!'.
I think that (1) is not controversial, but I'd like your input on issue (2). I see the following options:
- headings remain '!' .. '!!!', escape char is changed to backtick _`_
- headings remain '!' .. '!!!', escape char is changed to tilde '~'
- escape char remains '!', headings change to '==' .. '====' (like Wikipedia, but without the closing '==')
Which of these three options do you prefer?

Dieter votes 2. Incidentally I agree with Alex that paragraph importance should decrease with an increasing number of !-marks, but I am not patriotic about it if it incurs a major refactoring.

It's not a large change, so it could be done easily. I do not have a strong opinion on this issue. So if others would like the order of '!'..'!!!' reversed as well, I'll change it.

I like 3 best, and 2 better than 1. :-)
I also agree that paragraph importance should decrease with more !'s, so ! = heading, !! = subheading, !!! = subsubheading.
I have also, recently, made newer better images for stones in text the ... , but now including .... I will mail you about that

3 preferred, then 2, then 1.

I prefer 3 as well, as I think moving toward commonality with well used systems is a benefit. I also vote for the MediaWiki? style of increasing equal signs means deeper sub-headings.
: option 3 it is then

ok, I will go with option 3 and also reverse the order as suggested. I will implement the change on Saturday or Sunday. Expect some downtime.
