Either a WYSIWYG editor or the ability to upload a PDF would be a major asset to writers.

I typically write my stories in LibreOffice and then either copy-paste into a site's WYSIWYG editor or export to a PDF and upload. With Furry Network's current markdown setup, after pasting a document into the editor, I would then have to carefully go through the entire document and re-add my line breaks, italics, and centered text. I write long chapters, so it would be a very time consuming process.
