So, there was a vote on whether or not to delete the Sandbox Talk Page, the result of which was Keep... however, this does essentially mean that the Sandbox Talk page is to be treated as any other page on Uncyclopedia and therefore you are allowed to add a section to it, but not treat it as you would the Sandbox itself.

Personally I think this is silly because given that it is of course linked with the Sandbox, it'll invariably end up getting shat all over fairly regularly (as has just happened with a well-meaning IP "resetting" the page.) Should IP's and or users get banned for it? What do you do if someone adds a section of bullshit?

so, please cast your vote under the relevant heading. NO AGAINST VOTES -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 11:11, February 18, 2011 (UTC)

Treat as a standard talk page (the status-quo)

  • It's a talkpage. Talkpages are for talking. Sometimes things merit talking. This is talking. Shouldn't it be on the talkpage? Or something. What? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 11:20, 18 February 2011
I'd agree with you, except for the fact that it's a talk page for a page you can do anything the fuck you want to, and that this is made clear on the page itself. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 11:22, February 18, 2011 (UTC)

Which is a bad idea in my opinion, if you have a question about it, go directly to an admin, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Otherwise, they'll leave it on the Sandbox talk page, nobody will notice it and it will go unanswered -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 00:27, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Do as Wikipedia and treat as a sandbox page

  1. Symbol for vote For. - In the grand scheme of things, it's just a bloody talk page and treating it as a regular talk-page is misleading and silly. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 11:11, February 18, 2011 (UTC)
  2. Symbol for vote For. It's a sandbox, so why not keep it but user it as a sandbox. Here, I'll do a sandbox thing, and someone can erase it if they want to. Aleister 3:29 19-1-'11 Place

Disable it, make it redirect to Sandbox and lock it

  1. For This makes the most sense. Nothing of value is on that talk page, or on any of the site for that matter, so I don't see why we should bother wasting time pretending there is. Also, has anybody seen my three wolf moon shirt? MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 11:26, February 18, 2011 (UTC)
  2. For. --Roman Dog Bird 03:20, February 19, 2011 (UTC)
  3. For Even though I don't use the sandbox. Is there any advantage to using it over a user page? Jackofspades (talk) 03:28, February 19, 2011 (UTC)
    For most users, no. For IPs or noobs trying to figure out how to do something, yes. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 03:32, February 19, 2011 (UTC)

  5. Symbol for vote For. - I'm voting for this as well, because in the grand scheme of things, whether it gets treated as an additional sandbox or a locked redirect, it makes sense -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 14:58, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

  1. We've regularly had blankers and other vandals vandalizing the talkpage, while they were well aware of the vandalizing aspect of their edits. If we do anything else than violently protect it from the vandals, the vandals win! *shrugs* Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 11:17, 18 February 2011
