Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

While processing the reopen queue on Super User I was presented with this:

I was immediately suspicious as a) the question was quite detailed and b) the only revision appeared to be the addition of an extra image.

When I got to the bottom of the question I saw this:

enter image description here

Now as a question with an open bounty can't be closed and a bounty can't be added to a closed question this is clearly an audit so all I had to do was click the "reopen" button.

I checked the actual question first just to make sure.

So one of two things needs to happen here.

  1. Don't pick questions with an active bounty to use as review audit questions.
  2. Don't display the bounty notice if you are using it as a review audit question.

Granted, I guess most robo-reviewers wouldn't even think about the logic behind that—if in the first place they knew that questions with bounties can't be closed. – slhck Feb 28 '13 at 13:02
Since you saw that on Super User site shouldn't you post this on SuperUser's meta? Or are you assuming the issue is "stackexchange" wide? – Mike Feb 28 '13 at 13:04
@Mike - I'm assuming that the issue is network wide. I see no reason for Super User to have special code in this regard. – ChrisF Feb 28 '13 at 13:05

Starting with the next build, we won't be picking questions with bounties as possible reopen queue audits.

I just saw a new Reopen Review with a bounty. – S.L. Barth May 17 '13 at 8:02
I just saw another one. – Michael Hampton May 18 '13 at 17:24
I would like to notify the SO team that this bug is apparently back: another Reopen review with a bounty. – S.L. Barth Jul 29 '13 at 14:56
I just found another one – p.s.w.g Dec 19 '13 at 23:40
