Please check the [code][1]

    Because links to jsfiddle.net must be accompanied by code in the actual post. – J. Steen Feb 25 '13 at 9:27

    It's plain English... what word didn't you understand? – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Feb 25 '13 at 9:27

    Lance Roberts gives the answer below; however note that a question that consists only of "Please check the code" and some code is not acceptable, either. It'll need to have some amount of description. – Pekka Feb 25 '13 at 9:33

    I was actually confused about it too. I thought it wanted me to mark the link as code, not add code from the jsfiddle link to the post – ott Nov 11 '13 at 14:06
  • In KISS-speech it's "Linking to jsfiddle isn't allowed, copypaste all your code in the post instead". – RoestVrijStaal May 21 '14 at 22:07

They don't want you posting just a link. You can post the link, but only if you post the code (or at least a relevant portion of it).

A full description of the reasoning behind this restriction can be found in Prevent posts with links to jsfiddle and no code.
