Today on one of the answers, I saw this banner or notice. The answer was a complete copy-paste from quora.com.

I want to know what kind of banners does Hinduism.SE use. Is the above the only one in use for answers?

Are these banners standard SE templates or can they be customized for the site? E.g., can the above banner be modified and linked to one of our FAQs?

Seems like we have separate banners for questions and answers. Can someone list all banners in use to know what they are and see if they can be improved?

There is no way to customize post notice but if it's really needed in future, then we can ask the Stack Exchange team for support. But for now I didn't encounter such a need.

Anyway the meta post you linked also answers your question.

Notices available for Questions & Answers:

  • citation needed

    Some of the information contained in this post requires additional references. Please edit to add citations to reliable sources that support the assertions made here. Unsourced material may be disputed or deleted.

    Most commonly used here on the main site (Hinduism.SE) when user doesn't mention any scriptures in support of the answer.

  • current event

    Post is related to a rapidly changing event.

    I think it's not used here yet or at least I didn't encounter it.

  • insufficient explanation

    We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

    Second most commonly used one, when the answer has the potential but lacks details.

Then there are protect, locked and bounty notices.

'Protected' used to protect a question from unwanted answers, sometimes few questions (especially the HNQ ones) attract off-site users too and they present comment like answers and sometimes it happens internally on the site too, 'protect' will restrict new users from answering. It can be added or removed by moderators. Click this tool (available to 2K+ users only) to see all currently protected questions.

'Locked' is used to stop any action on certain post, for various reasons listed below:

  • Content dispute

    This post has been locked while disputes about its content are being resolved. For more info visit meta.

  • Off-topic comments

    This post has been locked due to the high amount of off-topic comments generated. For extended discussions, please use chat.

Bounty notice can be checked by any user who can award bounty.

  • Yes, the "citation needed" would work fine. – Pandya Jan 11 '17 at 7:51
  • @Pandya I am sure I have added insufficient explanation too few times but not as commonly as citation needed. And protect is also not that uncommon. – Ankit Sharma Jan 11 '17 at 7:52
  • Wow, there are so many choices among banners. With these many banners, most of the answers can be retained without compromising the quality. – iammilind Jan 11 '17 at 11:30
  • @iammilind I can see only 2 applicable for us most of the time and already been applied a lot – Ankit Sharma Jan 11 '17 at 14:34
