Sandbox for Proposed Challenges

That is the current sandbox. It is getting old and a lot of pages. Should a high ranking user make a new post for sandbox? The old sandbox is getting kinda clunky. With over 40 pages of posts it takes longer to load, and is getting bulky. With a new one we can experience the joy of starting fresh.

    \$\begingroup\$ I don't think there's a reason to split the sandbox in two. It would only serve to divide the attention of the community between both sandboxes, for no benefit (I can think of). \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ We just need to encourage people to look through what's already there and comment on answers. Or maybe a kick in the behind for a few of us lazy people (myself included) who have unposted challenges in the sandbox. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I agree that the sandbox is in dire need of cleaning but I don't think creating a new one is the optimal solution. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ We used to do exactly this, but then we stopped retiring sandboxes because it proved to be useless. In any case, due to pagination, a sandbox with 1000 answers takes no longer to load than a sandbox with 30. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @doorknob unless you're on the mobile app where it takes so long to load it's unusable. \$\endgroup\$
