Should we allow answers by Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Language Learning Model (LLM) allowed on this site?

Please no. These answers are often just a list of possible solutions, untested possible solutions. We have too broad question as close reason. And these answers are actually too broad answers and ...

Giving a good answer that is not being accepted or at least upvoted

SE used to have such a mechanism. It was simply showing the user's acceptances as a percentage of the number of questions that user had asked with upvoted answers. In my own case, if the person asking ...

Can I post questions that I have answered on drupal website (d.o)?

I would say yes, with the caveats: The question doesn't already exist, in some form, on DA. You're not blantly just copy/pasting over content in bulk. It's summarizing a long winded thread/page to a ...
