How to use a sandbox for stub articles
For expanding a small article (known as a stub), beginning from a sandbox can be helpful. Here you can write and rewrite before going "live."
Small articles that are expanded by a factor of five within a short period (and are well-referenced) are also eligible as "Did You Know" entries; working in a sandbox until reaching that threshold may be a good idea.
