The image (3.png) was originally uploaded in 2013 on the Erich Manstein page. It was overwritten in 2017 for the profile image on the Harper Thompson page. So I reverted the change and reuploaded the Harper Thompson profile image.
It mentions a Legion invasion coming soon. So what you're suggesting is that Magni was woken up for a invasion that would take place 4-5 years latter, aka more time than he had been communing with the earth.
The whole thing with the "Five year time skip" is not lore as there is nothing that states it happened. You're fine to use it for your own roleplay, but it should not be on lore pages as per the wiki policy.
There was something in beta with Demon Hunter quest: Rise of the Illidari wherein a freed Demon Hunter said: "A decade with only the voices inside my head. I thought I would go insane." But it was changed later on. I haven't made a Demon Hunter on Live yet, so this would explain the disconnect.
There's also a Demon Hunter joke:"10 years in stasis will give you such a crick in the neck." But Dave Kosak said it shouldn't be interpreted as canon.
It was also stated that the Demon Hunters were imprisoned for 10 years at Gamescom, evidently this was retconned.
So yes, there is no longer anything stating such. I was simply operating on information that I didn't know was outdated.
You need to remember that saying "10 years" or "a decade" (especially saying "a decade) has a good chance that it was rounded up (or down). Like how someone might say the "The Beijing Olympics was a decade ago" when it was actually eight years ago. Just something to keep in mind.
Yeah, I couldn't really think of something that was 11 or 9 years ago for an example. What I think happened in Blizz's case was that Black Temple was 9 years ago IRL, so Kosak got mixed up. Given that they seem to have purged all mentions of "a decade" or "10 years" between Beta and release, I would say they're using their general tactic of "let's hope the playerbase forget we stuffed up".
