Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I originally posted this as an answer (10k only) to the feature-request Prevent posts with links to jsfiddle and no code. Ben is uǝq backwards suggested to post this as a dedicated bug report because the original request has been completed already. That makes sense, so here we go:

I just discovered that some users already find their way around posting jsfiddle links without also adding some inline code into a question:

enter image description here

So I suggest a code block containing jsfiddle links should not be counted as code block when ensuring that there's some inline code besides a jsfiddle link...

EDIT: I changed the meta-tag to to encourage some more opinions on this topic, because this is not a bug, but a feature-request, if at all.

I don't see the need in adding workarounds for this. The user was most likely notified of needing code and chose to go this route instead of actually following the advice of the popup. Therefore, they clearly deserve their question to be closed, as they cannot even make a simple effort of adding code, and were warned before they even posted the question.

Covering all the workarounds for not allowing jsFiddle links without code is like covering all the different forms of "problem" to block from titles. Some people would just rather find obscure ways of bypassing the check instead of just fixing the problem to begin with; there's nothing you can do about that.
