Formatting your post properly

Markdown is a lightweight and easy-to-use syntax for styling all forms of writing on Flaw Tech. You control the display of the document; formatting words as bold or italic, adding images, and creating lists are just a few of the things we can do with Markdown. Mostly, Markdown is just regular text with a few non-alphabetic characters thrown in, like # or *.

Headings

# This is an <h1> tag
## This is an <h2> tag
### This is an <h3> tag
#### This is an <h4> tag
##### This is an <h5> tag
###### This is an <h6> tag

_This will also be italic_

**This text will be bold**
__This will also be bold__

This text will be italic

This will also be italic

This text will be bold

This will also be bold

Tables

You can create tables by assembling a list of words and dividing them with hyphens - (for the first row), and then separating each column with a pipe |:

First Header Second Header
Content from cell 1 Content from cell 2
Content in the first column Content in the second column

Username @mentions

Typing an @ symbol, followed by a username, will notify that person to come and view the comment. This is called an “@mention”, because you’re mentioning the individual. You can also @mention teams within an organization.
