how to move content from my sandbox in order to create a new page

I want to create an article, I have it ready on my sandbox, and it’s ready to be published. In order to publish it from my sandbox I need to take certain steps. Could somebody please just confirm for me that I’m correct about the following? First from my sandbox, I click the “move” tab and I see three boxes: above one box it says: “new title”. Inside that box there is the word “user”. I can scroll down from “user” to “(article)”. I think I should do that. It makes sense. The other box says “Oxcross/sandbox” which is me. I think I should change that to the title of the article, which will be: Tanya Berezin. The third box says “reason”. I will type into that box “creating an article”. Last, I click on the “move page” box.

That’s all. Thank you in advance very much. Oxcross ( talk) 19:09, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Hey Oxcross. In short, yes. The first box is the namespace the article will be moved to, the second is the new title of the article once it is moved, and the third is (obviously) the reason for moving, which in this case is to create a new article. Wood 19:15, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much for that. Oxcross ( talk) 19:27, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

... @ Oxcross: and very nice it looks too! It'd be a good idea to add some categories and there are several articles mentioning her name where you could create links. Thincat ( talk) 19:35, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you, Thincat -- will do. Oxcross ( talk) 19:52, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
