 @blvtomoya Also, of note, if you truly wanted to suppress these notices,
 [https://wordpress.org/plugins/adminimize/ there are plugins available]
 that can set custom Screen Options for all users.

 > Are we updating or adding content to the Help regarding this? (the help
 dropdown next to the Screen Options is contextual depending on the admin
 page you are using. I don't have a recommendation but utilizing it could
 be useful to consider too.)
 In regard to the "Help" section next to the screen options, it'd be great
 if there were a new "About the Classic Editor" section that described a
 short synopsis of what this editor was designed to do and another minor
 callout to Gutenberg.

 FWIW, it won't be long until we start to see plugins that don't have
 compatibility with Classic, and of course, the core features are being
 developed for the new editor. Something like:
 > **About the Classic Editor**
 > The **Classic Editor** was the default editor before 5.0. It uses an
 older approach toward content authoring, encouraging shortcodes, metaboxes
 and lots of things. etc.
 > For all the latest features in WordPress, we recommend you switch to the
 new editor, which is significantly more powerful for authoring, media
 management and publishing. You can do everything that you can do in
 Classic, and more! To learn more about the new editor and how to switch,
 read here.
 (^Also, please revise this first draft!!)
