Corey, I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Could you expand? Where is this preview meant to be shown (where does the reader and/or editor see it) and so what are you thinking would be the work flow to see the sanitized version vs the article version you describe?.

We are also looking into implementing “Article Previews” over the next couple months. As a middle ground it may be a good idea that we sanitze the sentence in the preview, but leave it untouched in the article. Best of both worlds?

I am interested in constructive feedback and discussion on how to solve
the problem of first sentences not being very readable on mobile
devices. Feel free to begin such a discussion.

"Feel free to do my job for me" is not an appropriate answer to a volunteer. Cc Rachel.

Nemo, while I have always deeply appreciated your level of engagement, I'm not sure that was necessary. It sounds like there's frustration around roles, but part of what empowers everyone within this movement is that one is able to begin a discussion on how to improve something. Has that ever stopped someone in the past? What's stopping you now? Am I missing something?

I welcome conversation about roles of volunteers or any other frustrations about communication and collaboration on my Meta talk page or via email (it would probably be counter-productive to get into this on this thread).
