Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

This is what I mean:

When you are in SO/review as you know you can see answers like this:

The problem I have is when I see this, I think the code is NOT properly formatted.

So I click on show full answer

and get this:

A well formatted code.

I'm NO expert in most of the subjects discussed in StackOverflow but that shouldn't prevent me from improving the posts in ways I can, for example, formatting code as code.

So, the fact that I can't quickly preview whether code is properly formatted (something crucial to the site experience) means we have to go post-by-post with an extra click to check if the code is formatted.

I think this shouldn't be something very difficult to implement and would significantly improve the review experience.

What do you think about this?

Maybe this doesn't qualify as an answer, but this would be awesome. It's a huge pain to keep checking each answer to see if the code is formatted. Please show the code as formatted in the review list so we can more easily edit answers and keep the quality up without wasting time.
