I just got this question – Conversion from WebM to MP4 in Ubuntu is slow and bad quality – in the Reopen Review Queue. The question displays a command and its CLI output, and makes an attempt to diagnose part of the problem:
It also does not play with Windows Media Player. (The reason for this is the mpegv1 to which the file is converted.)
And, most importantly, it was not closed! I opened the revision history and saw that slhck♦ had closed the question, edited it, reopened it, and answered it, all within a 23 hour period on Feb 5 / Feb 6. (The OP also made substantial edits during this period.)
Since the review queue was asking whether I wanted to reopen a question that was already open because it had been reopened by a moderator, I concluded that it was an audit (although, clearly, a poorly constructed one), and so I voted to reopen it. Naturally, the audit orc jumped out and hit me with his cudgel:
(This image links to a full-sized copy of itself.)
I guess I have two main points:
- All non-audit entries in the Reopen Queue are closed. So audits in the Reopen Queue should display (in the Review Queue) as being closed. A question that displays as being open is too obviously an audit; even a robo-reviewer could learn to recognize that. (Presumably any reviewer who follows the link to look directly at the question should see its true status.)
- If an RQ audit shows a question that is really open (whether it’s one that has never been closed, or one that that’s been closed, improved, and reopened), the “correct” action (the one that lets you pass the audit) should be reopen. The audits should not require the reviewer to vote to close (or leave closed) questions that five users (or one über-user) have chosen to reopen.
P.S. Why does it say
“If you’re unable to fix these problems by Editing, you should Close such questions.”
in the Reopen Queue?
It should say “…, you should leave such questions Closed.”
or “…, you should vote
Leave Closed on such questions.”
And why is it still saying “Stop! Look and Listen.” when there’s no audio?
