Often (or mostly) we all encounter, when a new user asks a question that there is no MWE (done that myself). Also, we mostly ask them to post an MWE via comment.

So, apart from giving a tour of the site when they join, will it be a good idea to inform the users (only when they ask their first or first-few questions) about the MWE? For instance, a marque or a highlight on top of the page where the question is being typed.

I've just been "migrated." I think your question is very important.

"How to" on MWE

The request for an MWE is so common that I can't help but wonder whether the submission process isn't aided by a "how to." I expect there'd be more submissions and less need to request if the OP had some level of confidence regarding the mechanics of getting code into the question.
