    I don't when there's not much code needed, like in

    int i=0;
    i++;

    or something like that. With longer chunks, tho, it's really necessary.

    you would use '[' then the word 'code' and then ']' and end it with '[' and then '/' and then 'code' and then ']';

    it would be:

    [ c o d e ]
    code here
    [ / c o d e ]

    except without spaces.

    yeah, I agree with using code tags, but only when it's large amounts of code

    I personally like the tags. They make everything look nice.

    and they are also an efficient means of labelling things.

    Yeah, once I see code without tags, I usually just dismiss it because it is uncomfortable to read. I don't like it. USE THE TAGS!

    Use the tags when they help readability and don't phatten the post.

    PHP Code:
    #include <stdio.h>

    int main(void)
    {
         
    printf("Why don't you guys like PHP? It formats AND colors!\n");
         return 
    0;
