Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This may be related to my question A review audit tells you there's 5 close votes already.

I just failed an audit in the First Posts review queue. The question clearly stated that it was closed (Possible Duplicate link and everything) so I clicked No Action Needed. As the closed link was at the top of the question this seemed to be a reasonable course of action (more fool me).

I don't have a pre-audit screenshot as I wasn't expecting to need one. It basically looked exactly the same as the below apart from the score, which was displayed as 0.


Here's the review link

Hmm... The post was apparently chosen because it was deleted by the community shortly after it was closed, so the bug is the presence of the "Possible Duplicate" banner on a First-Post Review, as you wouldn't have known that the post was closed otherwise. – Robert Harvey Jan 14 '13 at 22:26
The pre-audit screenshot would have shown zero votes, with no mention of [closed] in the title. The bug with the close votes being exposed has apparently been fixed already. – Robert Harvey Jan 14 '13 at 22:32
Yes @Robert, it might be simpler to exclude questions closed as duplicates entirely from review audits to stop this from happening (though I didn't see the 5 close votes so it looks like that got fixed!) – ben is uǝq backwards Jan 14 '13 at 22:32

Posts that were closed as duplicates are now never chosen for audits. Good catch.
