The sandbox is now owned by a dummy account, Sandbox. At the moment it has a default profile picture.

Can we create/find a profile picture for it that illustrates that:

  • the user is a dummy account
  • the user's sole purpose is to run the sandbox

I think we may want something like the Community user's profile.

(And, while we're at it, maybe a description that explains what the user does?)

    \$\begingroup\$ Why not simply the same image as the Community user? \$\endgroup\$ – Calvin's Hobbies Sep 23 '14 at 3:15

I took the liberty of writing out a profile for our beloved Sandbox. I kept it simple. He doesn't actually "run" the Sandbox. He just exists so that nobody else gets all of the notifications.

Add our website to his bio:

website codegolf.stackexchange.com

Set his profile text as follows:

Hi, I'm not really a person.

I exist to own the Sandbox, so that no single member of the community has to endure the constant updates being made to it.

He owns the Sandbox, but he is not a Sandbox. Fill the blank below with your own suggestion in the comments. Upvote your favorite suggestions!

Community : Stack Exchange :: _______ : Sandbox

Someone from PPCG should create original art for Sandbox. Heck, you could even make a pop contest out of it if you took the time to write a solid-enough spec.

    \$\begingroup\$ I went ahead and applied these changes, and also threw together a really terrible avatar image as a placeholder until a better one is made / found. (Fun fact: The Sandbox user currently has 58 notifications.) \$\endgroup\$ – Doorknob Sep 22 '14 at 21:17

    \$\begingroup\$ For a name, I keep coming back to the idea of the rakes people use to keep golf bunkers tidy. Seems fitting, but I don't know how to work that in. \$\endgroup\$ – Geobits Sep 23 '14 at 1:39

    \$\begingroup\$ @Doorknob Maybe the website should be the address of the sandbox? (The avatar really isn't that bad) \$\endgroup\$ – user16402 Sep 23 '14 at 19:28
