Type of submission (Please choose one)[edit]

  • Presentation (one-to-many)


Show how this or this works.

  • Using a sandbox nursery garden for article development (very assistive).
  • Placing the tool is extremely easy in English Wikipedia. When creating a user sandbox, replace {{user sandbox}} template with {{user sand box}}.
  • Only 4 article templates (generic & 3 biographies) have been filled in, the rest are empty as the structure is supposed to be checked and revised.
  • Custom user article templates can be easily built, with the ability to edit them at will with a few clicks, add/remove them from the appearing list, while at the same page a full list view of all templates created is given.
  • Custom article templates assisting programs or editathons can additionally be injected by an instructor.
  • Creating an article from a sandbox (moving the page correctly), is foolproff.
  • Gives way to translate an article to a sandbox, for editing more before publishing in the article space.
  • Gives ability to easily put formed bibliography and add explanatory notes in addition to citation references, using the visual editor (generic article template).
  • Featured bite-proof protection.

Expected outcomes[edit]

Make editing easier, more effective and more organized, for newcomers, for education programs, editathons, but also for veterans.
