I agree with what you guys have said thus far, and I won't repeat what has already been said.

I would like to add what I see as another benefit of doing this, other than people just being able to fix your problem for you. It also opens up the ability for them to also make recommendations on better ways to do things/or recommend a sort of 'best practices' on how things should be done which would also be a big benefit to us new guys.

I know a lot of times people are just needing help on homework problems, and in those situations the instructor might want things done simply[or a certain way], but still knowing there are more appropriate ways of doing things is always a positive in my book.

After reading my own words years after, I think that there could be a reason why people do not post everything. You know, closed source projects. You publish it, your work is gone... Or maybe not. Maybe this is how people see it?

It would depend on the error. Compile errors probably don't need runnable code.
Unexpected behaviour in code however...

The worst of them are: "I have an error <Code block here>" And that's it.
Then you ask for the stacktrace and they give you the first line only :thumbdown:

There are a lot of teachers that are getting onto students for getting help online. Posting code can make it easy to see you got outside help :)

Copyright on code is not in any way forfeited by posting it... Just write a little licensing agreement into a comment.

I never had such problems, I do not even understand why would anyone do such a thing. ;) Could you explain to me a bit more, WingedPanther?

Take the stuff I post as an example. If I use some of my tutorial stuff in my personal portfolio, and someone checks on it, they're going to know that either 1) I use WingedPanther as my online alias, or 2) I plagiarized the heck of some smart guy who goes by WingedPanther.

Now, programming teachers have a pretty standard set of problems they like to assign. The change problem, for example, is really common. It's easy to swipe code off a website and claim that's you. It's hard to prove it :)
