Recently @Community♦︎ has been constantly protecting our beloved Sandbox.

enter image description here

Our rep threshold for meta has been decreased specifically to grant new users access to the Sandbox so they can post their proposed challenges. Having the Sandbox protected, conflicts this raising the rep requirement up to +10 to post an answer.

It seems that because of some new users deleting their / posing new sandbox posts or some other reason, @Community is assuming the Sandbox is attracting bad quality answers.

Can the sandbox's auto-protection somehow be disabled or at least the threshold for auto-protection be changed? I don't know if this is possible, but I can ask nicely :3

I've disabled auto-protection on this meta site.

Or rather, set the relevant thresholds (answers from new users) to 10,000.

That should keep things under control for a few weeks.
