Say I'm in a hurry and I really need help to fix some code. I want to reach many people and get the best answer as soon as possible.

In this situation I would probably copy and paste the same question on a few good websites like Stack Overflow and The Code Project.

Are there any consequences I might face for doing this, being reported for example, or is it perfectly acceptable and maybe pretty common?

(Emphasis mine)

It is your question, so if you want to post it on an SE site and multiple other sites you are fine.

Don't just cross-post on the SE network of sites since that is considered abusive use of the SE sites. This question explains that situation: Is cross-posting a question on multiple Stack Exchange sites permitted if the question is on-topic for each site?.

    When posting between SE and elsewhere I think it would also be etiquette to include links to the other postings – PolyGeo Jul 30 '15 at 20:54
