Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I think that we should have some sort of a sandbox site where we can post questions, answers and comments in a controlled environment.

Currently I'm working with Stack Overflow but I can't post "test data" over there because I cherish my neglected reputation.

The sandbox that @George Edison was referring to was formating sandbox.
I started a new API sandbox at: which should be free to post any test answers and comments.

Great idea! – Nathan Osman Jun 23 '10 at 6:18

Due to the removal and clean-up of the meta sandbox, I would suggest that we make this question a "free for all" sandbox.

I was using the meta sandbox to simulate new answers and comments, but the original intent was only for markdown formatting it seems.
