Other points aside, "wont be useful to others" I disagree with. Language is even broader, with more niche edge cases, yet there's language SEs. As someone who frequents a network that routinely handles highly specific - and highly unspecific - engineering questions, I think a prompts SE can work fine. — OverLordGoldDragon 55 secs ago

...Or is this just about showing solidarity to those who want to strike, regardless of whatever they are striking about? It's your choice to make. All actions that you want to consider doing (or in this case not doing) is voluntary. You can always not do voting/reviewing/editing etc. regardless of strike. But if your aim is to just cause maximum damage to SE as shown in your last line ("A user strike would really hurt.") not posting anything (questions/answers/comments) will probably be effective. If a post goes viral (has lots of view/votes, etc)... — user13267 20 secs ago
[ Boson light ] New comment posted by user13267
"Should you"? Depends on you. All moderation activities by users/moderators are voluntary. You don't have to do any moderation regardless of strike. But what is it exactly about? Do you support the extreme length that some users are going here regarding AI, that is, banning any post that contains any kind of AI? Or do you support the more logical view of responsible AI use where users should be allowed to choose any tool they want, AI or not, to produce their posts, as long as it's not vandalism and actually useful to the end user?... — user13267 31 secs ago

@user13267 Yours is a good question, to which I do not have a good answer. Reason is that GPT posts tend to not last long on MSE. Even after mods' strike started, users who are unaware of or unconvinced by the strike continue to downvote and close the obvious nonsense. There is a list of 10 such posts here, and there is another one that I linked here, but they all point to posts that got deleted since, thus only visible to users with 10k+ rep on MSE, which you do not appear to have. — dxiv 24 secs ago

@user13267 I completely disagree. Simple fact is that GPT posts continue to waste the time and patience of participating users, to the detriment of good-faith questions and answers. And SE's attempt to pretend the problem does not exist only compounds the aggravation. If what you are looking for is hard numbers and specific examples, maybe asking on a site meta could give you more satisfying answers from the mods directly, especially a site where you have the right to view deleted posts. — dxiv 26 secs ago

I'm not looking for any hard numbers. I have seen some people here who claim they have seen 1000's of GPT non-sense gone unchecked, and some who say they recognize GPT generated posts just by looking because they have seen that many. If GPT nonsense is this rampant I would assume I should be able to see many with just a casual browse of the site. If they are indeed getting deleted before a casual user (who cannot view deleted posts) even encounters them, then my layman understanding is that the moderation system of the site is working — user13267 51 secs ago

What you're saying (looking at lots of posts with basic grammar errors like not capitalizing 'I' is pretty annoying) is true, but I don't think there's really any way to categorize any given post as lazy or not. I guess there is a review queue called triage in SO, may be that can be used for users to vote on whether a post is 'lazy' before it actually goes to other users for edit reviews — user13267 30 secs ago

[ Boson light ] New comment posted by user13267
I think we should give any user the benefit of doubt before claiming they are just lazy. May be they wanted to post a quick question first (so that at least the question gets out there, sometimes it can take hours or even days before a question is viewed by someone who knows the answer) and would edit it after some time to clarify grammar, or may be someone was doing it on mobile and it was too annoying to fix small things like these. There can be ay number of reasons besides just 'lazy'. I would take this an opportunity to get quick reps or badge — user13267 6 secs ago

That's one option. It's completely your decision. Your time is also valuable, you should get to decide which post gets your time.

As said by others here these issues might not be due to laziness.

Thanks for the answer. There is really no excuse for not capitalizing "I" unless your caps lock is busted. I'm not sure what to say about the lack of paragraphs though. I applaud you too for taking that on. Its grunt work at best, but at least it presents the site in a way that is more professional. — Kalamalka Kid 5 secs ago
[ Boson light ] New comment posted by Catija
@KalamalkaKid Not all users are fluent English speakers and many languages do not capitalize the first person pronouns... in general, it's best to avoid judging people's spelling and grammar. It can be frustrating to constantly see issues in posts but, at the same time, you can choose who to help - there's plenty to edit, so be choosy. If seeing lowercase "I"s makes you grumpy, then find another post to improve - or come up with fun stories about why they can't use the capital letter. :) — Catija ♦ 36 secs ago

Note that your statement "prompt design" has only been a thing for at most six months is not really true.

This isn't about me, this is a critique of moderators on this network. And, yes, I do think they're the problem. I've answered this on numerous occasion.

Not that you dispatch your friend circle. And, moreover, that channel isn't used to improve and edit questions. It's used to collect close votes, they do it openly with tags like cv-pls and whatever.

I use [double space] new lines all the time in QAs here, but only true [double return] paragraphs to better separate ideas. I get the feeling that newbies when they first post can see one return doesn't actually make a new line, but don't extrapolate that 2 returns would work, & certainly no-one's ever going to guess 2 spaces + return will work, so they just leave it as-is. — Tetsujin 45 secs ago

@NoDataDumpNoContribution I can't speak for the others, but for me, once the pro-tem council was closed and the time came to elect the first proper one, I just didn't want to be a part of it since it seemed like it was going to be something much more official and "heavy" than I was interested in. The main reason it died, IMO, is that it was badly defined from the beginning allowing different people to expect too many different things from it and end up being disappointed. — terdon on strike 37 secs ago

@KevinB But it didn't have to be without community approval. The moderator council could for example have seen itself as a conduit between community and company, filtering and shaping, asking the community if necessary and telling the company in clear words what the community wants and needs, not just be used as potential badge of approval. To me it looks a bit as if there wasn't enough interest on both sides. Of course one can ask what this council was actually good for. Maybe it simply wasn't needed by anyone. — NoDataDumpNoContribution 34 secs ago

You can go on strike for as long as you want. Maybe they want to replace human moderators with AIs and you're just falling for the wrong controversy.

@AndreasdetestsAIhype I know, which defeats the whole purpose of this entire company. But at least we would know if they are pro-AI spam or not, instead of guessing that they are pro-spam. I know it's obvious they want to shove AI down our throats but they can't see we are fed up (pun intended) with this. The company treats the moderators as free labor, and it's users as sheeple who go for anything they do. Honestly, our feedback is just being thrown to /dev/null, because they have decided they want AI garbage.

These kind of questions are on-topic at Electrical Engineering, but with some reservations. You cannot ask where to find/buy something there. In general ask about technologies over specific products. You'll also be expected to link the datasheet to the part you are asking about, since nobody will want to track that down on their own just to help you. That being said, I'm pretty sure your question as-is would be considered fine, just add a link to the datasheet and other relevant info like app notes etc. — Lundin 48 secs ago

@RussellMcMahon "I have not yet tried it but it looks sound. I've never used Python." - yes; that's the exact problem.

It doesn't have ideas at all. It only has an extremely sophisticated model of what words are likely to follow what other words, taking a rather large amount of context into account, using much more sophisticated algorithms than older attempts at AI. — Karl Knechtel 44 secs ago
