About the Sandbox
Invented by the ancient Romans in order to keep minute grains of sand as souvenirs from their travels.
Its popular usage today derives from the fact that in order to sample a country, they could inspect their grain of sand, thus having an experience of the country without actually being there.
However, a sandbox also recalls the childhood box-like area filled with sand to play in that could be easily cleaned by either raking the sand smooth or just putting in more sand.
In a wiki, a sandbox is there for editors to play around with changes in formatting etc., without actually editing anything of significance. Then when you have finished, you can delete all your changes i.e. sweep the sandbox clean! For BRWiki, we have included various sandboxes above. Go play in the sand!
