Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Test to see if the title length requirement can be circumvented by appending lots of dots. How did a new question with a title shorter than 15 characters come to exist?

Ok, it's possible to create a question without title by putting lots of dots in it. Please don't edit this question, because the missing title is a good indicator of the bug. – Rob W Jul 3 '13 at 16:40
Is there a reason to keep it now that the test is over? – Michael Mrozek Jul 3 '13 at 16:40
@MichaelMrozek Yes, the developers ought to fix this bug. Hence the tag "bug". I can't edit the question to make the description more useful, because the title length requirement is enforced by the edit system. – Rob W Jul 3 '13 at 16:41
Having at least 1 char in the title would be nice so that there would be a link on the questions page... – Servy Jul 3 '13 at 16:44
This made my day. – Jhawins Jul 3 '13 at 16:44
We're on it and will fix shortly. – Adam Lear Jul 3 '13 at 16:45
@Servy: But getting in here is part of the fun! This is the new Meta Exclusive Club. – animuson Jul 3 '13 at 16:45
This is my new favourite question on Meta. – Pëkka Jul 3 '13 at 16:45
@Servy all you have to do is click on the votes/answers counters. They link here too. – Jhawins Jul 3 '13 at 16:46
@Pekka웃 - link, or it didn't happen. – Oded Jul 3 '13 at 16:46
And we even have @Pekka웃 here to sell his new Meta Exclusive Club Merchandise. – animuson Jul 3 '13 at 16:47
@Jhawinsss From the homepage, yes, from the questions list (or search page), no. – Servy Jul 3 '13 at 16:47
If you want to come here, you can find a usable link to this question on the Lounge<C++> starboard. Oh wait. – R. Martinho Fernandes Jul 3 '13 at 16:51
"[duplicate]" made the link clickable :( – Rob W Jul 3 '13 at 16:55
Voting to reopen for no reason other than to make the title no longer clickable again. – Servy Jul 3 '13 at 16:56
