I'm taking this game design course on edX (which, by the way, is excellent) and they emphasized the importance of prototyping, and getting new/fresh people to try your prototypes.

Is it valid to ask on GD.SE "where can I find prototype play-testers for my games?"

There's a similar question here about beta testers, which appears to be closed, then re-opened.

I thought about asking people directly in chat if they are interested, but it seems to be a small pool of users who recurringly visit (not, as required, a pool of fresh people all the time).

I think "where can I find playtesters" would qualify as being off-topic in the sense that it is a list-of question.

As I understand it, your linked example question was re-opened because it was changed to ask about a strategy rather than asking about a list of locations (I still don't think it's a great question, which is why I assume I voted to close it originally).
