SE has recently announced that sites can now request to enable a banner to warn about their policy on AI-generated content.

This feature might be beneficial for Web Apps SE, where the community consensus seems to be that any ChatGPT-generated or similar AI-generated content should be properly referenced and verified, as per this meta post: “Should GPT / ChatGPT generated answers be banned?

This would help us prevent uncited, low-quality AI-generated posts from cluttering our site.

Should we request to enable the banner?

We should have a banner to inform users about our policy on AI-generated content. This would dissuade users from posting uncited and/or low-quality AI-generated content in Web Apps SE.

I don’t see any drawbacks to having such a banner, and users can also dismiss the banner easily. Once dismissed, it won’t appear again for logged-in users, so it won’t be annoying.

For now, we have to pick one of the two banner text options. I propose we go with this one:

Reminder: Answers generated by artificial intelligence tools must be cited on Web Applications SE. Learn more

This option is more consistent with the community consensus that we established in the meta post: Should GPT / ChatGPT generated answers be banned?

    The banner has been enabled. The relevant help center article also reflects the site's policy on the matter (and it is mod-editable, in case it needs tweaking)
