The foundation for this[Migrate from reStructuredText to Markdown] is now complete as of #59. All that remains is:

I for one have been able to get better support than I do for most paid software but there are other areas that have a ways to go. Examples include logging into the site twice each visit, some grammar improvements, and maybe a bigger wiki. The plugins that still have support have really good support, and I like event ghost, and I want to see it succeed. One problem with my being enabled to help is who do I even turn documentation into? and who does have the necessary permissions to make changes? Before you brought it up kgschlosser, I didn't even know I could turn anything into you. If I submit changes, can you implement them on the website? I know there is a lot of discussion about the GitHub page but wouldn't it be simpler to focus efforts solely on the forum? Making it simple to contribute could also go a long ways. Maybe the leadership in the project could lay down some kind of ground work for things like this but without being well informed, and having a sense of direction, contributors will trickle in, get lost, and not come back. The idea is that they trickle in and stay. Once again, I'm not insulting the project, or those who contribute but I think there is a lot of work to do in terms of the contribution process.
