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

    @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
