An interesting reflexion.
The SO content becoming outdated is also a question wich hits me recently as I was landing in a row on several answers where the accepted solutions were provided with jQuery which in the meantime could actually be solved in "native" JS as the platforms evolved.
I don't know how they are going to manage, this UX wise and generally speaking, but sounds like to me something Stackoverflow should be concerned of.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
