What is the Sandbox?
This "Sandbox" is a place where Politics users can get feedback on prospective questions they wish to post to the main page. This is useful because writing a clear and fully specified question on your first try can be difficult, and there is a much better chance of your question being well received if you post it in the Sandbox first.
To post to the Sandbox, scroll to the bottom of this page and click "Answer This Question", or click on the "Add Proposal" link below. Click "OK" when it asks if you really want to add another answer. Write your question exactly as you would when actually posting it. You may also add some notes about specific things you would like to clarify before posting it. Other users will help you improve your proposed question by rating and discussing it. When you think your question is ready for the public, go ahead and post it, and replace the post here with a link to the question on the main site and delete the Sandbox post.
To add an inline tag to a proposal use shortcut link syntax with a prefix:
- Most people include applicable tags in their proposal, so for instance you can search for all united-states proposals by merely adding the tag name in quotes to the search query.
Voting on answers indicates wether or not you think they are ready for the main site in their current form.
