I'm using it for 7 years now (?) and published it in 2016.
Several thousand posts were written in the meantime, only minor issues.
I wrote more than 50% of my posts from mobiles since I'm using this, HTML tags are a PITA otherwise.
"Wikisyntax" is probably misleading because it primarily supports
- autolinking of URLs
- de-localizing internal links (no lockouts) https://perlmonks.org/?node_id=11133704 becomes Re: Markdown is now supported for comments, experimentally
- short doc-links like ?my? for my
- automatic <p> tags between paragraphs
- short inline code-tags via 'single quotes'
- email-style quoting with > text...
- automated linking of Module::Names -> Module::Names
The new syntax is translated to uppercase tags like <P> before posting and those uppercase tags are translated back again to the new syntax when editing , i.e. the <P> disappears at paragraphs end. (click on the xml display-link to see the stored format with uppercase tags)
It's based on a multi-phase regex logic and can be easily ported to Perl.
Hope this was of interest! :)
