As the community mod pointed out here that they can help us get the controversial post banner if the community thinks we need one. Please discuss here and feel free to show agree/disagree by voting this post.

If Hinduism SE wants to have this feature on, you need to get a community consensus on having this feature and the text in the box. I think the first good step would be holding a meta discussion about it.

Also, please discuss the text content in the banner. Here is the banner used at IPS

    I have added the tag here, Please flag the post when the changes have to be done in the post and give the reference of the comment where discussion happened. Flagging comment is not much helping because a flagged comment either has to be deleted or the flag itself has to be declined. – TheLittleNaruto Mar 25 at 16:51

    I don't see a need for this yet. Maybe I will in future. As long as a scripture says something, and the correct meaning/translation is provided, that's all there is to it. Whether people of current day and age like it or not is no barometer of controversial-ity. After all, there are many ills plaguing society today that are caused by not conforming to shastras, so mentioning the remedy is paramount. – mar Mar 30 at 3:22
  • @mar That banner is no harm in any sense. It is only for educational purpose. We can still discuss in-scope things. – Mr_Green Mar 30 at 13:16
  • I see no point for having such a banner. If anything it will backfire. Controversial is a broad term, and the availability of such a banner will result in members flagging each and every post as controversial (even if the same has scriptural support). – Carmen sandiego Apr 9 at 12:06
