Hello.

This is just a public service message regarding that our forum system manager has installed a new sandbox function in this forum, in which you can hopefully prepare and save drafts for your new discussion threads.

That is all. I hope that you will find it useful.

Also, there may or may not be some downtime in the coming days, so please do not panic if you temporarily cannot access the forum.

Here is where you find the sandbox function in the mobile view:

I share the above opinion and want to say that's pretty good, at least for me who sometimes working long enough on thread but later limited to exit this thread making because of fear that draft wouldn't save everything(which without irony happened sometimes with me).

Since I and a lot of other people perform a lot of work on mobile, would it be possible to add an image dictating where mobile users should go to access their sandboxes in the OP?
That is hard for me to find, given that I do not use the mobile layout myself, but I would appreciate if somebody else can screencapture an image of where to find the Sandbox in this viewing mode and then share if with us.

As someone who is not familiar with the function, is a sandbox thread visible for public, or is it limited to the creator only? Or can its visibility be edited somehow?

So I have my draft for a CRT that I wanna make later and I want to put it in my sandbox. Is it supposed to only be visible to me when I click "Post Thread"?

Yes, they're private, and so only you can see what you post.
There's still some moderation around in any case, so please don't do something that breaks rules.

This sandbox function is kinda neat. It's like a private space where you can make as many threads as you want. Just that someone's sandbox is probably not visible to any other person.

Yes, we specifically asked our forum system manager to set it up in a private manner, but I am not sure whether or not it worked yet.

When I click on the Sandbox button, I currently cannot see any threads created by others though.

I tested it. I sent a link of my sandbox to a few members and this came up.

So the privacy portion is working perfectly fine.

Okay. That is good. It seems like the sandbox function works exactly as intended then.

That's actaully pretty neat no more public wanking
But can we post more than 20+ images on the sandbox are We still limited to 20+
 
I do think that it'd be helpful if we could maybe find a way to share sandboxes with specific people. It'd be extremely helpful for anyone who'd like to post a CRT and has a sandbox that they'd like a fellow supporter or knowledgeable member to give their thoughts on before they transfer it to an actual thread for the general public.

I've already suggested this to Ant as well, but we have yet to see if it can be done in the first place.

My friend also has to pay our forum system manager for the work done, and we do not have advertisements set up quite yet, so this forum has just been an expense for him so far.
