A post on main meta is stating "Sites can now request to enable a banner to warn about their policy on AI-generated content", so given that it seems to be general consensus on SFF that we should not allow AI content, should we request to enable this feature?

I understand the ultimate decision will probably have to be initiated by our "diamond moderators", but I feel it worthy for the community to discuss the issue or for the moderators to let us know what they might be planning already.

    Chances are those same users won't even read, let alone notice, the banner, but I'm all in favour, in the off chance that it can help.

    @Clockwork - Even if it only dissuades a few, that's still worthwhile.

    Thanks for creating this post. Ping a mod in a week or two, when this has had enough time that the consensus is unarguably clear, and we'll slap a status-review tag on it to get this implemented.

    @Randal'Thor I see the status-review tag has been added. Does this mean it is in the hands of CMs to implement?

    @Skooba Yes, should be.

    Apologies for the long turnaround time on this request. The banner is now enabled, with the "Learn more" link leading to the AI Policy help center article.

Yes, absolutely we should ask for this to be implemented with immediate effect.

There was an overwhelming consensus in favour of banning AI-generated content (26:1) with no dissenting posts in favour. The vast majority of ChatGPT and Bard copied answers we've seen on this site are of a very low quality, typically filled with 'hallucinations' and generally misleading content, always without sourcing.

In short, having a big banner saying "Don't do that" would be a useful addition.

    Possibly referencing that the AI can be a starting point for making an answer, but is not an answer itself, the same way that Wikipedia used to be referenced.
