    For using Blockquates

    :::

    Add a " > " before the line you want to Blockquote. Blockquote also allows you to be lazy and put a single " > " before the first line of a hand warped paragraph.
    Example:

    Format
    >Blockquote

    Result

    Blockquote

    Blockquotes can be nested (i.e. a blockquote-in-a-blockquote) by adding additional levels of " > "
    Example:

    Format
    > This is the first level of quoting.
    >
    > > This is nested blockquote.
    >
    > Back to the first level.

    Result

    This is the first level of quoting.

    This is nested blockquote.

    Back to the first level..


    :::

    To produce horizontal rules.

    :::

    Place 3 or more asterisks " * " or underscores on a line by themselves. You can also put places between them.
    Example

    To use Code Blocks

    :::

    Simply indent every line of the block by at least 4 spaces or 4 backticks on top and below text.
    Example:

    Format
    (4 literall spaces) Code Block
    or
    ````
    A
    ````

    Result

    Code Block
    

    or

    A
    

    To use code block always put the text in a new line and not a continuation of text.
    Multiple lines can be also put in a Code block but the first line of it has to start in a new line
    Example

    Format

    (4 spaces) This is
    (4 spaces) a Code block

    Result

    This is 
    a Code Block

    To make markdown treat indicators of emphasis as literal.

    :::

    To make markdown treats certain characters like asterisk ( * ) and underscores ( _ ) as indicators of emphasis as literal all you have to do is backslash ( \ ) escape it.
    Example:

    \*\*Bold**
    Result

    **Bold**
    If you dont use backslash and just use 2 asterisks ( ** ) at the beginning or end of a word or sentence then it will be shown as Bold.

    Making copy-able Application forms.(For Groups/Sqauds/Company)

    I see many groups in forums who have application forms which are formatted but the format is not copy-able.
    to make copy-able formats follow this tutorial

    Test Application form
    Name: <answer>
    Age: <answer>
    Country: <answer>
    Gender: <answer>

    Now to make the above application format copy-able, I will simply use backslash escape. To use it just add a backslash ( \ ) behind every first group of emphasis indicators (here asterisks ( ** ) for emphasis of Bold).

    Format:
    \*\*Name:** <answer>
    \*\*Age:** <answer>
    \*\*Country:** <answer>
    \*\*Gender:** <answer>

    Result
    **Name:** <answer>
    **Age:** <answer>
    **Country:** <answer>
    **Gender:** <answer>


    Miscellaneous

    Getting annoyed from how images only load when u scroll too them? Use this.

    :::

    go to Profile>Settings>Browsing settings> and untick "Delay Image Loading"
    Do it only if you think your internet can handle it.


    :::

    Enabling Notification tones.

    Go to Profile>Settings and scroll down to "Notification and Sounds"
