I have noticed a behaviour that may or may not be a Markdown bug. It is a discrepancy between the preview and the rendered result, which is why I would need to post a question to check it out.

Is there an official place to do that?

    @Nyus - because at the time when I wrote this comment, one message on it was making it crash. – Gnoupi Feb 2 '11 at 15:31

    I believe it's also dangerous for mobile users due to an experiment with nested block quotes – Richard Tingle Dec 11 '13 at 14:06

    Apart from being link-only answer, it doesn't answer the question, which is where to post test questions. Your answer suggest posting an answer, which is not the same as posting the question. – Danubian Sailor Aug 14 '14 at 10:19

    You cannot post test questions in the formatting sandbox. That was the question, and this answer doesn't properly answer it. – Frank Jan 31 '15 at 22:40

The formatting sandbox does not really fit as it can only accept answers, not questions.

So, such thing as "questions sandbox" is not really possible since what you really ask for is a sandbox site, which does not exist.

If you really must test posting a question just do it, make sure to make it clear it's just a test (do NOT post stuff like "sjksjdidjs") and delete it asap right after posting it to minimize the noise.

Why not try it on your question and then change it back when you are done? Can you not edit your own question?

If it works, maybe you could describe it and change this to a bug.

    Cheers, that's the way I would have done it, but it turned out not to be a bug. – Pëkka Feb 11 '10 at 18:26

    @nyuszika7h not anymore, it's now safe to edit as much as we want without risking of CW. – Shadow Wizard Dec 8 '14 at 20:10
