Ever thought about switching from Markdown to Mediawiki syntax?

Mediawiki syntax is incredibly easy to use and kind of genius. It would also work well with wiki posts. It also seems to be more familiar to non-developers than Markdown but I could be very wrong.

Examples:

==header==
===subheader===
====sub-subheader====

*bullet point without needing space

‘’‘bold’’’

‘‘italics’’

Discourse is heavily invested in Markdown, as @codinghorror even went to co-build https://commonmark.org/ to develop a markdown standard.
