The Theory of Moderation blog post has some outdated information:

Im pretty sure it is still a suggested edit at 500 reputation. (I tried it C++ templates with derived classes)

The privileges screen doesn't have it either, please update the blog post as well.

    There used to be such privilege, it was removed six months ago. I suspect many blog posts are outdated, both text and screenshots, won't harm to update them to prevent confusing people. Nov 7, 2013 at 9:23

    I think it's quite reasonable for old blog posts to be outdated, provided they are not regularly referenced as containing definitive information. Do any official SE pages link to this blog post? Nov 7, 2013 at 9:26

    @Duncan yes: stackoverflow.com/review the you on the right is the reference

  • This is an exact duplicate question of this deleted one, where @Duncan said that people will forgive it since it is out of date. Also any moderator's page links to that blog.

    @hims056 Ah, well I would retract my statement now that I know it's directly referenced as gospel by SE pages. Nov 7, 2013 at 9:47
  • @hims056 too bad you asked to disassociate the question from your account, otherwise we could undelete and revive it! :) Nov 7, 2013 at 10:04
  • @Duncan That particular blog post is also referenced on every election page. See, for example: programmers.stackexchange.com/election/1 (the link under "accorded the highest level of privilege on our community")
