I need a second SE account for testing a browser plugin. The plugin revolves around interactions with other users and certain interaction events are handled by the plugin. This is pretty much impossible to test in the real world without asking other users to force these events to occur - this risks irritating other users and also slows down the test process somewhat.
I am very wary of creating a new account to enable me to test this in an environment that I have complete control over, because I do not wish get banned/suspended etc for irregularities.
Is there any way that the creation of a second account for test purposes can be officially sanctioned? Is there an alternative method anyone can suggest? My proper account and the second account would not have any interaction that would give either an "unfair advantage" - in essence, there would be no interaction that affects the reputation of either account. I am also quite happy to put the work in to get enough reputation on the second account to allow it to interact with me in the way I require.
