Why? Don't you know about them?

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.

Forgive my ignorance by not knowing but what is a code tag.

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 don't post code too often, but I do use the code tags when I do

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.

#include <stdio.h>

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

I've never found PHP to be useful. It doesn't even look good.

yes, but a cow that tells you the expiration date of it's milk would be to the betterment of the world. Nuclear war because of food poisoning would all but dissapear!
