Bot announcements in chat about code formatting?

So much code gets posted in chat by people looking for help but it can be tedious and difficult to read unformatted - especially in large chunks. Speaking for myself, I had no idea about the formatting options until someone in the chat took the time to explain them.

Is there any possibility of a bot doing regular, newbie-friendly announcements about code formatting? Not suggesting it would solve the problem entirely but it would be something towards raising awareness.

If someone types three single quotes (''') instead of ticks, camperbot will respond with a message about formatting and a link to the full page.

There’s some discussion on the GitHub repository. Feel free to contribute to the discussion over there as well. I don’t think we settled on a decision yet, but it is in the works.

And I agree, it can be frustrating to have a wall of unformatted code fly by in the chat rooms.
