When the expanded user cards privilege was made universal, the minimum summary comment length was reduced from 28 characters down to 6 in 2020.

However, the create posts page in the help center still lists the minimum as 28 characters:

Replace [your text here] with your desired summary (of at least 28 characters)

[emphasis added]

Can the help center be updated to reflect this change?

    The images are also wrong. I don't think any profiles show the shadow effect.

    As an aside, I'm not entirely sure it makes sense for this to be under "create posts". I understand it was probably just moved to the existing 1-reputation privilege page, but it seems disjoint from the rest of information on the page and is very hard to find by looking at the top-level /privileges page. I don't know if it's a significant enough feature to warrant its own 1-rep entry though (e.g. this terribly worded mock) or just changing the existing summary... though that's likely a separate conversation.
