We categorize the possible large-scale behaviors of one dimensional nearest-neighbor hopping "sandpile" slope models on a circle of N sites with nonconserving noise, via decimation. Defining the height at site i to be hi, we find a continuous infinity of fixed points of the decimation, parametrized by an index $n (1\leq n \leq 2)$ with $\langle(h_O-h_{N/2})^2\rangle \sim N^{2/n}$. The fixed point n=2 corresponds to our ordinary notion of a rough interface, while the others are new and far rougher.
