Here you can create a sandbox page for drafting and reviewing. Feel free to go ahead and make a page - you don't need to apply to join or be a member of the main wiki. However, note that each user should only have one Sandbox page with their name as the title - or a small, controlled number of other sandbox pages if necessary. Please do not create an individual page for every draft.
Please note: if you want your sandbox page to show up in the sidebar, make sure you don't have a colon in your URL. Wikidot parses colons in page URLs as denoting separate categories (for example, "forum:" for all forum-related pages), and the module in the sidebar is designed only to show those pages not in a category. The best way to ensure that this function doesn't lead to problems is to not include a colon when typing the title in the "Add a New Page" section.
Your page will be added to the sidebar automatically after being created: if you do not want your page appearing on the sidebar for whatever reason, tag it as exclude.
The sandbox and main site use a "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License", which means that a) anyone can create a derivative work of anything on the Library, but have to release it under the same license - and b) the work is almost impossible to profit off of, since people can legally create a derivative work and release that for free.
However, if your article is not based on something which uses a CC Attribution Share-Alike license (being in this case the Library, the Foundation or any related concepts), you can release it under a different license. One which means that your express permission is required to profit off your work. Just copy/paste this at the bottom of your page:
