I'm posting a question on Seasoned Advice and saw this:
This seems off for a couple reasons:
One, it seems odd to have code formatting instructions on the side bar of a cooking site. Even if it was accepted to format recipes or something as code, calling it "code" seems weird.
And, even on Stack Overflow it shouldn't be necessary to include the language with the code fence unless that particular code is for a language other than the tagged language. This is also outright irrelevant information on Seasoned Advice.
In both cases, it seems to be supplying more information than necessary, which isn't great for new users trying to absorb what they can. I think the code instructions should be removed from sites that have nothing to do with programming, and it's mentioned that tagging is also sufficient for highlighting on the relevant sites. If a user needs multiple different highlighting schemes in a single question, I'd say in most cases it's a new user posting a "translate" question, so the question is likely offtopic anyway.
Side note, how do I shrink images? Do I need to save them as smaller in the first place? They always come out needlessly huge.
