00:00:00,906 --> 00:00:02,783
This is a walkthrough of how to start

2
00:00:02,783 --> 00:00:06,325
editing in a sandbox on Wikipedia.

3
00:00:06,325 --> 00:00:07,617
You can use a sandbox

4
00:00:07,617 --> 00:00:09,825
to experiment with wiki syntax,

5
00:00:09,825 --> 00:00:11,492
make practice edits,

6
00:00:11,492 --> 00:00:13,575
take notes and collect material,

7
00:00:13,575 --> 00:00:17,242
or draft an article that can later be moved into Wikipedia.

8
00:00:17,242 --> 00:00:19,199
To make a user sandbox,

9
00:00:19,199 --> 00:00:22,157
First you need to log in to your user account.

10
00:00:22,157 --> 00:00:23,533
Once you've logged in,

11
00:00:23,533 --> 00:00:26,573
click on "Sandbox" in the personal tools links

12
00:00:26,573 --> 00:00:28,283
at the top of the page.

13
00:00:28,283 --> 00:00:30,992
This will bring you to your default sandbox page,

14
00:00:30,992 --> 00:00:33,950
which is a subpage of your user page.

15
00:00:33,950 --> 00:00:35,117
In the edit window,

16
00:00:35,117 --> 00:00:38,200
you can begin composing your sandbox page.

17
00:00:38,200 --> 00:00:39,450
It will come preloaded

18
00:00:39,450 --> 00:00:42,908
with a bit of wikicode for a sandbox template.

19
00:00:42,908 --> 00:00:44,033
Once you've written

20
00:00:44,033 --> 00:00:45,492
a little bit of your sandbox article,

21
00:00:45,492 --> 00:00:47,117
you can press the show preview button

22
00:00:47,117 --> 00:00:48,450
beneath the edit window

23
00:00:48,450 --> 00:00:50,617
to see what the page will look like.

24
00:00:50,617 --> 00:00:52,241
Then, enter an edit summary

25
00:00:52,241 --> 00:00:53,825
in the field beneath the edit window

26
00:00:53,825 --> 00:00:55,533
to describe what you've done,

27
00:00:55,533 --> 00:00:57,700
and press Save page.

28
00:00:57,700 --> 00:01:00,116
You've started your sandbox article!

29
00:01:00,116 --> 00:01:03,116
You can always press edit to make more changes.

30
00:01:03,116 --> 00:01:05,408
And if you leave the sandbox template there,

31
00:01:05,408 --> 00:01:07,741
it has some useful tutorial links

32
00:01:07,741 --> 00:01:09,200
as well as a link for requesting

33
00:01:09,200 --> 00:01:11,366
a review of your sandbox draft

34
00:01:11,366 --> 00:01:14,366
for inclusion as a new Wikipedia article.

35
00:01:14,366 --> 99:59:59,000
Happy editing!

36
99:59:59,000 --> 99:59:59,000
