Should I perform a duck test when reviewing suggested edits?

Close votes queue is half-dead, can anything be done about it?

Should I perform a duck test when reviewing suggested edits?

The phrase "the goals of the post's owner" can be understood in many ways (as can "strive to"), and if there's any definitive official guidance on what it's supposed to mean, it doesn't seem to be ...

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 ...
