The community sandbox will be at 15.4 shortly and all accounts and custom work will be removed as part of this. You will have to request new accounts once I post to the community that it is ready.
As a reminder, CA has graciously provided the sandbox to the community with a couple of stipulations that I need to remind the community of:
- The sandbox is not for commercial purposes.
- Only community members can have access and access is only granted via a request to the sandbox administrator from a link the the community.
- other guidelines are communicated when you receive your account.
- It took a lot of time and effort for the old Community executive to arrange the sandbox and CA is providing this as a courtesy and absorbs the cost of the hosting and maintenance.
I have noticed that there is some commercial development going on, this is to stop immediately. If it persists I will ban the user.
Others have been creating accounts for friends and colleagues, this is also to stop. When I find an account such as this, I deactivate both accounts.
I will not let the actions of a few to put in jeopardy the free sandbox that CA has provided to us. If you are a developer or a consultant and need a developing environment, please contact CA. This environment is to allow us to experiment and trial new features, not to provide a free development environment for your organization.
On a more positive note, I am cleaning up one of the lower environments to allow users to view a pristine version of 15.4 as the main sandbox is corrupted pretty quickly by those that cannot follow the guidelines. The access will be limited to non-administrative functions.
Sorry that I have to take a bit of a heavy hand, but I want to ensure that our community continues to enjoy the FREE sandbox.
I am making more time in my schedule to perform administrative functions. This will result in quicker turn around times in account creation and deactivation.
