Welcome to Codidact Meta!
Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.
We had this discussion over at Software Development: Should we allow answers generated by ChatGPT? The general consensus so far seem to be that such answers shouldn't be allowed. Mostly because they are low quality content.
But now I'm seeing such answers popping up on other Codidact communities as well. Rather than having every single Codidact community come up with their own rules for this, I think a network-wide policy would be more sensible.
Particularly since that means that community-specific moderators might get backup in spotting and moderating such posts - they aren't easy to spot at a glance. It would also be nice if all such answers would be moderated after the same standard & methods of spotting them no matter which Codidact site the answer was posted at.
Given that we decide not to allow them, we should also standardise disciplinary measure across the sites. As in: the punishment for posting something generated by an AI undisclosed, pretending to be the author. After "Someplace Else" introduced their policy against such answers, posting one leads to a 1 week suspension at the first offense.
Whereas examples like this where they openly state ChatGPT as the source shouldn't lead to disciplinary measures IMO - just post deletion.
Matters to discuss:
- Should we have a network-wide policy against AI generated answers and if so how to phrase it?
- How to moderate such posts? "Someplace Else" has not publicly shared how moderators spot such AI-generated content, but there are various online programs for this, of diverse reliability.
We have posted our default policy for generative-AI content. It's more of a clarification than an actual change; as poin …
