The FamilySearch Wiki Sandbox is a page designed for creating new content, and testing and experimenting with wiki syntax.

The Sandbox was created as a place with fewer rules and policies than other pages on FamilySearch Wiki. For example, you don't have to follow the Manual of Style or reach community consensus before making a major change. However, it must not be used for malicious purposes, and policies such as no personal attacks, civility, and copyrights still apply.

If you have a FamilySearch Account, you can create your own sandbox in your userspace. You can find your user sandbox here. (And if it doesn't exist yet, feel free to create it!)
