Most of the screenshots on privileges pages are outdated. Shouldn't they be replaced with screenshots of the new design?


Example 1: Set Bounties:

Current Image

Image 1

Updated Image

Image 2


Example 2: Create Tag Synonyms

Current Image

Image 3

Updated Image

Image 4


There are many other screenshots that are also outdated.

    While we're at it a lot of the help center needs updated images.... maybe a CW post is needed – angussidney May 13 '16 at 6:30
  • @angussidney it used to be that way actually - there was a single faq page, editable by high rep users, but it was all replaced with the (now not so new) help center. archived page – ShaWiz May 14 '16 at 16:56
  • @ShadowWizard What I meant was that we should make a post here on meta, then SE can simply copy each entry when they get the time. However making it mod or high rep editable would also be a good idea... – angussidney May 14 '16 at 21:50

    Your second screenshot is a fairly pointless update; naturally, PHP will continue to agglomerate more and more synonyms over time, but that's pretty unimportant. (The color changes might be relevant, and I can imagine the "php jobs" bit as well, but those aren't nearly as significant as the bounty example.) – Nathan Tuggy May 15 '16 at 0:01
  • -1, the "Create Tag Synonyms" updated image should have a hand-drawn circle. – Michał Perłakowski May 15 '16 at 16:36

    @NathanTuggy Actually, the second screenshot focuses on the change in style (colour and font) rather than the number of synonyms PHP has – Panda May 18 '16 at 23:01

I don't agree with updating screenshots to match changes in data that are, by their very nature, dynamic counters that'll change with time. Shall we update screenshots of the users list every time anyone's rep changes? But for UI/caption changes, absolutely. This is a problem with the help pages in general: they have not been kept up-to-date very well.
