Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

There is a user who has been foiling my suggested edit rejections, and I noticed they currently have 237 approvals with 0 rejections. That struck me as a little odd, because I figured they would have at least rejected an audit or two. Then again, maybe not.

So, being bored, I started going through their review history, and I can't find a single instance of a suggested edit audit, either passed or failed.

I figure this user would have to be a prime candidate for an audit, so:

  • How does the system determine who gets audited and who doesn't?
  • Is this particular instance a case of the user not being audited, or simply detecting and skipping all audits for some reason?

How does the system determine who gets audited and who doesn't? My guess is you won't get an answer for that and that it will remain "undisclosed". –  Servy Feb 21 '13 at 16:05
@Servy - that was my gut feeling as well; hopefully this will at least help the algorithms being used to be refined –  LittleBobbyTables Feb 21 '13 at 16:07
I am really interested in the second option though; perhaps there will need to be some mod tool to indicate an overly high percentage of skips on audit items (if such a thing doesn't already exist). –  Servy Feb 21 '13 at 16:09
A couple of days ago there was a post mentioning 1 in 20 reviews. –  Toon Krijthe Feb 21 '13 at 16:16
One reason for skipping obvious audits is to save the prescious votes for something better. I sometimes consider doing that, to earn an extra reject vote. :-) –  Bo Persson Feb 21 '13 at 16:34
