Sandbox quizEdit

Test yourself!
What is a good use for your Sandbox?
  1. A good place to copy-and-paste source material from copyrighted sources to paraphrase later. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! Your sandbox is still public, so you shouldn't use it to hold copyrighted material.
  2. A good place to talk to other Wikipedians. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! The sandbox is public, but it's unlikely other Wikipedians will visit it, unless you link to it from somewhere else. To talk to Wikipedians, visit the Talk page of an article, or go to their Userpage.
  3. A place to draft your article, or experiment with layout and structuring a page. (click to expand or collapse)
    CORRECT! You can do whatever you want, formatting-wise, on your Sandbox page. It's a great place to practice WikiCode or VisualEditor, and to play with structuring a new article.
  4. A place to copy and paste an article to make changes to it. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! Don't copy and paste an entire article into your Sandbox. You'll want to tackle articles by making small changes to the original article. If you want to merge parts of your sandbox with an existing article, check out the Sandbox training module, which is different from this one.
