    What are your views concerning out-dated articles. I'm talking about articles that *gave* good advice back in the day where CSS and Web Standards were practically non-existent?

    Articles like The Condensed Version On Designing Your Site and Using Slices and Save For Web In Photoshop that give the wrong idea of how a website should be created ... shouldn't these be deleted or moved out of public view?

    When new member stumbles upon articles like that, and replies
    very good for beginners. nice =]
    it makes my heart skip a couple of beats ... I'm afraid it doesn't give a good image of the forums where we strive to advocate Web Standards and CSS for layouts, etc...

    Just a thought

    I think you could just add a post to the bottom that says that the article's outdated and link to a better one that covers the same information but with modern techniques. Going through and closing all obsolete articles would, I think, be a bit too time-consuming for us moderatores, though...

    I'd say mods should edit the top saying when this article was posted (even though it's already stated in the post header), and state that this information is out of date.
