Did I create, then fail my own review audit?

Why is this audit spam?

Can the review system be fixed?

Sorry about that; this was completely broken for a few days, but it should be all good now.

I messed up. What can I do? => This is an audit test

This is advice I recall receiving when I complained about failing an audit several years back: It isn't necessarily about whether the question should be closed or not, but about whether you as a ...

Failed a few tests recently for reasons that fail

I'd guess the pass action on this would be an upvote or No Action Needed review. Exactly. Your first thought would, preferably, been to upvote the high quality and helpful content. Comments should ...

Failing Review Audit because I added a comment that it was a duplicate post

I then added a comment recommending they search for previous questions and gave them a link to the duplicate question and answers. You should have flagged as a duplicate instead of commenting they ...

Strange audit result

As outlined in the FAQ the criteria for "bad" Close/Reopen audits are questions which are quickly closed with no answers. AFAIK downvotes also play a role. This particular question was downvoted and ...

Why are review audits so bad and are there any plans to improve them?

The downvotes so far would seem to indicate people don't like to be told they have to try harder. If you can't get an audit right, you weren't paying enough attention. Audits are a PITA, that's for ...

Why did I fail this review audit?

It could be improved quite a bit. The formatting could be changed to a list. Proper punctuation could be added. Proper capitalization could be added. That's an example of a low-quality answer.

Should we look up existing answers when reviewing?

It is certainly best practice. There have been many occasions when I've reviewed, particularly Late Answers, where the post merely duplicates an existing answer. Sometimes an answer from a new user ...

Ramhound's answer is very thorough. I'd like to clarify his answer to "Why shouldn't I have downvoted?" There is no reason to not downvote a technically incorrect answer. In my opinion, therefore, ...

Why does the audit system think this is a great answer?

This answer is not correct (as observed by one person who commented). So the author of the answer should be pinged so they can fix the answer. Why shouldn't I have downvoted? 54 random people ...

TIL: Answering 10 minutes after a question is asked is "late."

Now, before this review, I wouldn't have exactly considered 8 minutes and 50 seconds to be very late for an answer here. The audit system is automatic. The audit system pulls from answers and ...

TIL: Answering 10 minutes after a question is asked is "late."

Why have the review audits not been fixed?

There is no real way that the answer you were reviewing "Looks OK". It has several red flags that, at the very least, warrant some kind of investigation or action. Firstly the formatting is awful ...
