I just saw this over at History (part of the question is included to show the exact location of the header):

Text of header above the answer, for the visually impaired and in case of image removal:

Want to improve this post? Add citations from reputable sources by editing the post. Posts with unsourced content may be edited or deleted.

I think being able to add this is a neat feature, can we have something like this?

That's a so-called post notice, and it's available on all sites in the network. The 'problem' is, only ♦ moderators can add it:

I'm a moderator on three other sites in the network and regularly apply answer notices when I see a low quality answer (often after it has been flagged as Very Low Quality) of which I think it might be able to be edited into a proper answer. I guess you could use a custom moderator flag asking to apply a post notice, but I haven't seen anybody do that so far and I'm not sure what the moderators here think about this.

    $\begingroup$ I have not ever looked into this option, so thanks for this answer! A lot of posts we close need more than just citations to be improved (or are troll questions), but this looks like it could be helpful. $\endgroup$
