I spotted this "answer" as a first-time post:

Feature Request

Please add support for proxies.... It would be helpful to people behind proxies. Like "ME"

I was going to flag it as "Not an Answer" (which it wouldn't be on any other, non-meta, site), but it seems like it might be nice to be able to vote on feature requests and Stack Apps doesn't have its own meta.

Searching, there are currently about a dozen "answers" that are little more than feature requests for the app they are posted on.

So can we get a consensus or "official" answer? ...
Should feature-requests, for third party apps, be flagged as "not an answer"?

I couldn't find anything in the FAQ that addressed this, nor any post either here or on the main Meta site.

Note: Per this question, and the moderator's answer, this is the recommended place to ask this kind of question.

    +1 - I'd love to hear the official word on this since I've received a few flags of this nature as well. – Nathan Osman Mar 12 '13 at 20:35
  • @NathanOsman, you're a diamond mod. You could write "The official word" on this and probably make it stick (hint, hint). :) Maybe post an answer here stating something like "I will reject such flags until a bigger cheese than me compels otherwise". ;-) – Brock Adams Apr 17 '13 at 12:55
  • Update: Such "answers" are now de facto permitted here. NTS: make a proper answer here... – Brock Adams Apr 28 '17 at 9:46
