Is it okay to ask bugtest questions on Meta Stack Overflow once in a while? By "bugtest questions," I'm referring to posts that only exist for the purpose of attempting to reproduce a bug, like this sample:
Hey, please don't delete this question, I'm trying to repro a bug that [user24601] observed in [posting comment replies] just now. [Bonus points for a link to an existing bug report here].
It would help me out if you guys could [post two comments], and help me [upvote one of them to +5].
I'll delete this question when I'm done, should take about 10 minutes, 15 minutes tops.
(Again, that's just a random made-up sample.)
I remember seeing some questions like this in the past, which people dutifully helped out with and were eventually shut down by their OPs after they got the data they needed. But I asked one the other day that got deleted by someone almost before I was done with my test, and I'm not certain but I think the same thing may have happened with the examples used by this recent question. I don't have links for the older ones because I'm not a 10k user.
Are test questions that only exist for reproducing errors okay? Did they used to be okay but not anymore? If they're allowed at all, what are the rules and etiquette on using them?
