Published without formal review


{{editprotected}} As far as I know, we never publish anything without peer review now. Should we get rid of this perpetually-empty section? Heavy Water (talk) 17:51, 29 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

And, while we're at it, Collaboration requests should go, it's just transcluded from Disputed. --Heavy Water (talk) 17:59, 29 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
I didn't do this (yet) because I think it is possible for articles to get published without a formal review if an admin or reviewer goes rogue. And there are always attempts to self-publish by various other users. Though they would not show up on the main page, I think they would show up here.
As far as the second issue, I think if you look at Wikinews:Newsroom/Collaboration it is possible for other articles to show here. I think (maybe) there is a template or category to use to request collaboration/assistance on undisputed articles. These things said, I have never been good at interpreting the code used for dynamic page lists. Cheers, SVTCobra 22:47, 29 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Is my assessment correct then, @Heavy Water? You probably have more CSS and HTML knowledge than I do. Cheers, SVTCobra 05:22, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Yes, it is. My fault, "REMOVE these from Category:Published...unless {{peer reviewed}}" makes clear it is an undesirable outcome, but for some reason I did not understand.
As for Collaboration, there is a deleted article displaying there right now, and I thought that would update itself. My understanding now is: Collaboration shows all disputed articles, and developing articles tagged with {{helpneeded}}. Heavy Water (talk) 14:15, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
And, occasionally, a deleted article or two. Heavy Water (talk) 14:15, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
I am not seeing any deleted articles on my end at this time (and don't remember seeing any ever). Do they still show after a refresh/purge cache? SVTCobra 19:55, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Yeah, after purging again it's gone. Heavy Water (talk) 19:57, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Purge buttons or URLs often don't work for me at first, with the exception of the Main Page one. Heavy Water (talk) 20:01, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
As an aside, @SVTCobra, as one of the original authors of DPL (with all props to Brian, who maintained it for years), if you ever need help interpreting a DPL call, just ask.) - Amgine | t 04:13, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply

A mobile friendly version of Newsroom!


The current version of this page on mobile view does not appear user-friendly and presents difficulties in navigation. I request that we consider developing a mobile-friendly version to address these issues. This can be achieved by implementing a 'nomobile' CSS style div section only for desktop devices/version and a 'mobile-only' CSS style div section specifically for mobile devices, along with a modified rearrangement of the boxes- on mobile view.

If the mediawiki platform does not already have a CSS code for this purpose, we can utilize the following code snippet:

 @media only screen and (max-width: 390px) {
	.nomobile {
		display: none !important;

@media only screen and (min-width: 391px) {
	.mobile-only {
		display: none !important;
