Wiki help for Background music refers only to legacy skins?

In the Help page for "Background music in albums" there are instructions for only 5 skins
1. Turtle
2. MrBurn5
3. Lumen
4. Matrix
5. Matrix slide
all of which appear to be discontinued. A search on the "Browse all skins" page returns either " - did not match any skin" or else displays another skin which is presumably the successor to the missing skin (although this relationship is not explicitly mentioned).

Should these be replaced by instructions for currently supported skins?

For example, maybe the instructions for "Turtle" and "MrBurn5" could be renamed as "Tiger, Projector, Animatics" and amended if the instructions need updating.

(and maybe there could be could be an explanation on the skin search page when a different name from the search is returned, so that the searcher understands that the mystery skin found is actually a replacement for the unfound skin?)

I’d suggest deleting the page. It’s the sort of thing that risks always being out of date and should be covered in skin manuals.

Yes, that's a moving target, and it will always be out of date. The manuals for my current skins that support background music - Neptune and Saturn - have instructions, so no reason to duplicate them elsewhere.

I have hidden the content and added a simple note to read skin manuals, rather than leave the page empty or with obsolete information. I have just added rem statements at the beginning and end, so it is easy to undo if anyone wants to do so.

If it is generally agreed that the page is obsolete, then someone in team Sweden can delete the page at their leisure. For information, the page is linked to only from the 'Learning more' section of the Tutorials page.
