AI Policy

At Pro Wrestling Stories, we are committed to authenticity and the human touch in our storytelling. Authors are accountable for accuracy, fairness, originality, and quality in their writing. This is a policy for how writers, editors, and other employees will use AI in relation to working with our website.

The main points are:

  • Authors are accountable for accuracy, fairness, originality, and quality in their writing.
  • AI outputs are always reviewed by humans for accuracy.
  • We believe in transparency in the ways we use AI.
  • We use AI as an assistant without using it to supplant human insight or creativity.

We May Use AI For:

  • Inspiring content ideas, brainstorming topics
  • Suggesting headlines and meta descriptions
  • Help with grammar, spelling and rephrasing (Grammarly for Instance)
  • Help creating outlines and structuring posts
  • First drafts of social posts
  • Summarizing information
  • Sparking ideas for interview questions
  • Repurposing existing content to use in other settings (such as summarizing a video interview to help turn it into an article.)
  • Fine-tuning content for more specific audiences
  • Making templates for routinely sent emails or messages.

We Do Not Use AI For:

  • Research. We may use AI to assist with summarizing research but not as a source of research itself.
  • Fully writing articles- AI is used as a writing and brainstorming assistant, not as an author.
  • To make artwork. We use licensed and fully credited images along with original artwork submitted by the creators themselves.

AI and Privacy:

We do not put sensitive information such as client names, contact information or private identification numbers into ChatGPT or other AI chatbots.

  • ChatGPT records and stores transcripts of your conversations. This means any information you put into the chat, including personal information, is logged. It’s easy to accidentally give ChatGPT private details without realizing it, especially if you use it to proofread personal or professional documents.
  • A simple heuristic is the Reddit Rule: if you wouldn’t post it anonymously on Reddit, don’t put it in an AI tool without a clear understanding of their data policy.

Updates to This AI Policy

Policy Created January 12th, 2024. AI is moving quickly. This policy will be updated over time should our usage of AI change.

Ethics Policy

We adhere to a strict ethics policy, emphasizing fairness, context, and a commitment to diverse perspectives. Our stories are crafted with an understanding of the broader implications and potential interpretations, ensuring a respectful, unbiased, and inclusive approach.

Public Figures and Privacy

Our focus is on public figures within the professional wrestling industry. We respect the privacy of individuals who are not in the public eye. Our aim is to cover real historical wrestling stories that are fascinating, while at the same time avoiding any sensationalism or invasion of personal privacy.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity in voices and perspectives is central to our editorial policy. Our team of writers and editors comes from varied backgrounds, ensuring a rich array of viewpoints that reflect the diverse world of wrestling fans.
