The sandbox will be a problem when we graduate (hopefully soon!) As it is already, the people who look through the sandbox regularly are very little in number. What happens when we graduate, bringing in more traffic? Three problems:
- It won't be worth it to post in the sandbox, since the percentage of people who look through it will be very low.
- It won't be worth it to review sandbox posts (for the new users), since there's no feedback or reward.
- There will be more posts in the sandbox anyway (because of the increase in users), which a.) Aren't reviewed properly (due to points 1 and 2) and b.) Will require a new sandbox every day, perhaps.
Let's kill the sandbox.
I can already hear the protests: "But why? That's such a radical action! The sandbox was there forever! It can't go away!"
But, aren't we a Stack Exchange site? The entire network was designed so that there is no need for a sandbox. Is there not editing and closing? Questions don't have to be perfect immediately on posting; if you see a minor problem, just edit the post! Comment for major problems, and close unrecoverable challenges.
Are you starting to notice something? This is exactly what other Stack Exchange sites do!
Let's solve this problem, and get one step closer to graduation.
