If you are moving content from your sandbox into an existing article, care should be taken to integrate the content into the existing article as coherently as possible. If you have copied information from an article into a sandbox to re-write it, look for changes that have been made since you copied the material from the article, to make sure you aren't undoing improvements that others have made. Copy changes section by section; don't copy your entire sandbox into the article.

Be sure to copy text from your sandbox while the sandbox page is in 'Edit' or 'Edit source' mode. This ensures that the formatting is transferred correctly.

Make sure that you make it clear where the new content came from, especially if several people worked together in a sandbox. Adding "copied content from [[user:example/sandbox]]; see that article's history for attribution" is usually sufficient.
