I prefer shifting the content portions of the site into basically a huge namespaced wiki.
My personal idea atm is to use a subset of mediawiki the provides all the needed functionality for the moment and then work our way forward as time goes on.
Add to this a revamp to the other parsers and the addition of a few more and the ability to set your default preference in your profile and I think things would be good.

Well the things I miss are:
So I am happy with anything that accomodates all or most of this.
On further consideration I moved my vote to WYSIWYG. Much as I prefer to avoid js, a WYSIWYG formatter is simply easier to use. I do like the dual idea you mentioned, though.
Btw, we could support a dual TinyMCE-BBCode thing with http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/T.../bbcode
Voted BBCode as I've already learned it and it doesn't require me to turn on js
Edit: Changed my vote.
moonwitch, that'd be plaintext, raw html, or WYSIWYG, really.
The fastest, non-server-load-increasing option would be nice :P
This is brought up because MediaWiki's format is horribly documented and doesn't have a proper grammar. There is no standard parser for MediaWiki in Python (or any language, for that matter). CurseForge/WowAce's custom parsing system for Wiki-format is very slow and inextensible. Trying to make it faster or extend it would take many weeks which I think could be spent better elsewhere.
Instead of worrying about parsers and all, I think switching to a WYSIWYG format would be better overall, since (a) it's mostly done for us (b) overall, it's easy to use over wiki syntax.
Some things to note that if we do implement a WYSIWYG system:
