This could be considered to be a follow-up of AI generated content is problematic

Can I draw your attention to this post on SE.Meta, Sites can now request to enable a banner to warn about their policy on AI-generated content.

In short:

  • There are two banners is one banner to choose from:

    • **Reminder**: Answers generated by artificial intelligence tools are not allowed on [Site Name]. Learn more

    • **Reminder**: Answers generated by artificial intelligence tools must be cited on [Site Name]. Learn more

  • We need to reach a per-site concensus, and then we can notify the CM team of our intention

So, there seem to be three two options:

  • No banner
  • AI is not allowed
  • AI must be cited

Please vote accordingly on the answers below.

Votes will be counted on April 1 2024, and the results taken at that date (unless there are any objections).

Citation is now default

Note: The citation is now by default, see this update, Proposed changes to Help Center articles to include mention of AI-generated content policy.

So, basically, the question now is whether to allow AI or not...

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe, there should be an option to ban AI but not have the banner - as yet another banner could be considered "just more clutter" on an already crowded UI..? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If the complete answer is generated by AI through a prompt inquiry, I fully support this (see e.g. this answer. However, those who wrote their own answer, but improve the text through AI should be tolerated, not everyone is proficient in English. $\endgroup$
