Various images from the FAQ and privilege info pages are either low quality, outdated, or simply incorrect. For example, this image is of especially low quality:

Sure, it's not a huge problem, but it's an annoyance. These would be easy to fix with newer images specific to SE Gaming, like so:

Call it a pet peeve, but it just seems rather silly to have these things when the rest of the site is so professional.

Update

As an update to this, it appears that the various images are not cross-site, since SO-Meta has my updated image, but we don't. (If you think about it, that's pretty odd, since the image is SE Gaming themed, but whatever.)

Additionally, this answer on Meta Stack Overflow claims that the pages are community content and can be edited. While I don't appear to have the privileges to edit them, I'm sure some people do.

I propose we all try to create some new SE Gaming-specific images to replace the old inferior ones. If they are well-received, someone should edit them in. Who's with me?

    These images are used everywhere I believe, so we might need to migrate this to the system-wide meta.

  • Related: Pictures on the Established User privilege page are a little messed up. I'm unsure about the FAQ but the privilege pages, at least, can be edited. I never got around to doing it myself. Commented Mar 6, 2012 at 17:40
  • @agent86 Can I get an official confirmation that those are cross-site? If they are (and I believe you), then perhaps we can at least get some nicer images system-wide. Commented Mar 7, 2012 at 0:53

    @MatthewRead, was that perhaps deleted? I guess I don't have sufficient meta-rep to see it.

    @agent86 Looks like I accidentally deleted one character from the URL. Here we go: http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/107762/pictures-on-the-established-user-privilege-page-are-a-little-messed-up Commented Mar 7, 2012 at 2:56
  • Privilege wikis are pulled from MSO, but a) you need a certain amount of rep to edit them (2k I believe), and b) it's not automated. I'm not sure Gaming-specific images are appropriate; Stack Overflow is the biggest SE site by one or two orders of magnitude, and Sketchy is the default design for new sites.

  • @lunboks Not anymore. :) But yeah, we might need to update various screenshots that still refer to Sketchy.

The old FAQ was replaced with the much upgraded Tour, and the site's design was updated to a 'unified theme' with the rest of the network, which standardised a bunch of things, including the voting buttons and vote count positions.
