While your fellow students can find your sandbox page by looking through your course's Dashboard page, other editors on Wikipedia can see it too. Sometimes people will look through another person's edits and check out their sandbox out of curiosity, while in other cases your sandbox may appear on someone's radar because it contained plagiarism.

Essentially, anything you write on Wikipedia (no matter where you write it!) can be viewed by anyone else, so be careful about what you add to your sandbox and userspace. Your sandbox is a space to do things like draft your article, collect sources, or practice editing. Click here for a list of content you should avoid adding to your sandbox.
