No. There are at least a couple of reasons why review audits are, in my view, useless at best. Nobody's been banned due to them, so they're either not needed or not working. Emrakul said he doesn't think anyone has ever been review-banned due to failing too many audits. So either there are no reviewers sufficiently bad to deserve banning (in which case, ...

It's obviously impossible to comment on a specific user's reasons, but I think generally: Conflicts with author's intent — On other sites in the network, this is purely about the core point of a question/answer, which is usually fairly unambiguous. On Puzzling, however, things get a little more subjective because the presentation is often an integral ...

There should have been an "I'm Done" option that's normally greyed out until you take an action. Here's the same dialog box from Stack Overflow: I suspect the "I'm Done" button is invisible in your screenshot because of the recently added design. So I'll check with Stéphane on that. It turns out you flagged the answer as "Not an answer" right after it was ...

You approved several edits that added blatantly incorrect formatting (and incorrectly rejected others). You voted to reopen / leave open several posts that were obvious duplicates. You claimed that a number of posts that clearly go against site policy "Look OK." Likewise for questions that should have been closed. Oh, and this one—come on, seriously?! I ...

I was posting this response as a comment originally, but it soon became far too long! So here is my personal feedback on this puzzle (meant well!) as somebody who was actively trying to solve it... Personally, I don't think there was any rush to reveal the solution to your puzzle in your answer to this question. Some alternative actions could have been ...

Because this: Every one of your First Posts reviews were "No Action Needed," and many were in quick succession. I went through and quite a few of them could indeed use some sort of action, whether it be an edit, comment, vote, or something else. Please consider each review carefully and avoid "robo-reviewing." The queue exists for a reason, and simply ...

Normally, audits aren't enabled on sites of this size; there just aren't enough reviews (or enough posts that meet the criteria for becoming audits) to justify it. And that's true here as well. So, enabling them here was probably a bad idea at the time; the person who prompted the change should've been either banned for a longer period of time (something ...

Ah, I've found what it is. Since I've used all of my available votes for today, I can't access the queues that I normally can, since they require being able to vote up/down if necessary.

Please do let us know about this! You can do so by flagging any one of the user's posts as "in need of moderator intervention": Provide links to all relevant reviews, and the appropriate action will be taken if necessary.

There are currently no review audits on Puzzling. Puzzling did have review audits in the past but they were switched off by Shog9 after the community asked for it: Normally, audits aren't enabled on sites of this size; there just aren't enough reviews (or enough posts that meet the criteria for becoming audits) to justify it. I've disabled audits here until ...

I also rejected this suggested edit. We've had previous joke tags which haven't usually lasted long. I don't think honeypot is going to be a useful tag, although something clearer with a similar meaning like unsolvable (insoluble?) might be.

There are review tasks, but you aren't seeing them. Since you're a newly moderator, the only reason why you wouldn't be seeing a review item would be if you've already acted on them¹ (for close and reopen, that includes having cast a close/reopen vote before becoming a moderator). Note that the review counter is not personalized. I see 6 close items, 1 ...

If you click of a review without having taken any sort of action, SE will count it as a 'skip'. This means that the review will disappear from your queue, even though it is still actually there. If you manage to manually find it, then you can still vote. However, the queue can be quite... buggy. This is probably a small bug, or perhaps the action that the ...

Yes, this is by design. Every time a new user (0 posts) makes their first post here, it goes into the First Posts review queue. Every time a low-rep user (<50 rep) answers an old post, it goes into the Late Answers review queue. The rest is a matter of Venn diagrams and non-empty intersections.

Because AJ and I were too quick for you. The answers you refer to did show up in the First Posts review queue, but by the time you reached the review queues they'd already been reviewed there and flagged to send them into the Low Quality Posts review queue: https://puzzling.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/24412 https://puzzling.stackexchange.com/...

We didn't even give the poster 48 hours before his answer was deleted entirely, receiving 5(!) downvotes in that period as well as attention from a moderator. Note that users can still see their own deleted posts, edit them, and flag them as "in need of moderator attention" in order to get them undeleted once fixed. That being said, it's probably a good ...

Nobody believes that my puzzle is solvable so I will provide a solution below. Obviously this means that I will not be putting a bounty on it because the puzzle's solution is now available on the internet. The goal was to create a scavenger-hunt style puzzle that has lots of hints that look like typos and grammatical mistakes (every typo and grammatical ...

You can also see this happen if you get banned from reviewing by a moderator. To see the reason for which you were banned, you must open the review icon in a new window, or manually navigate to /review. There exists a request on Meta Stack Exchange to make the warning more clear in this case: New review navigation does not tell review-banned users what ...
