You may have seen a similar policy announced on StackOverflow's meta. While it's not enforced network-wide, we the moderators feel that the risk of posting plausible-sounding generated answers rather than correct answers is too high.
In particular, users have been observed using ChatGPT to farm reputation from low-activity questions with bounties across many StackExchange sites - including ones where they lack the domain expertise or even language comprehension to judge whether the answer is correct - knowing there's a chance their generated answer will be awarded the bounty by default even if it is incorrect. This practice is actively harmful to users posting questions and bounties on this site, so intervention to reduce this abuse of the system is warranted.
For these reasons, we will follow the same policy announced for StackOverflow:
- the use of ChatGPT or similar large language model AI to create posts here on gamedev.stackexchange.com is not permitted.
- Posts created with ChatGPT or AI are subject to deletion without notice.
- If a user is believed to have used ChatGPT after the posting of this temporary policy, sanctions will be imposed to prevent them from continuing to post such content, even if the posts would otherwise be acceptable.
