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

So it seems that my question about review audits feedback from yesterday was shut down because it was too similar to a previous question (for which I must add the sole answer to was less than satisfactory). So let me rephrase the question in a more focused fashion:

  • Is there a lack of positive feedback for Suggested Edits reviews audits on purpose?
    • If it's on purpose, what is the purpose?
    • If it's not, how should I/we do to get this feature implemented?

Since you're asserting that this should be changed, why do you feel that it's important to provide this positive feedback? What benefits would it provide? – Servy Mar 6 '13 at 21:53
It would allow me (or other reviewers) not to come to Meta and ask about the crazy number of users or bots that are trying to introduce vandalism at an alarming rate! – joce Mar 6 '13 at 21:54
It would also be consistent with the types of reviews for which the audits provide a positive feedback. – joce Mar 6 '13 at 21:55

I have not noticed that as a problem. If it becomes a problem at some point in the future, then perhaps we can address it then. – Servy Mar 6 '13 at 21:55
@Servy So if you don't think it's a problem, then it's not a problem? – joce Mar 6 '13 at 21:59
@Joce No, I'm saying I haven't noticed people making requests of that nature on meta. Do you have links to a significant number of such posts, to the point where it's clearly disruptive to the meta community? I'm not saying those posts aren't bad, I'm saying they just aren't being posted. – Servy Mar 6 '13 at 22:01

  1. It is on purpose. We kinda felt it was unnecessary given how blatantly bad the audits are.

  2. If you think they'd be useful, post that as a feature-request and describe why you'd like to see them.

I personally think it comes down to a UX / user expectation thing. Being told that I correctly flagged a late answer (for example), I come to expect to be told when I correctly passed any and all types of audits. I would say SO should either be silent or be explicit for every types of audits. – joce Mar 6 '13 at 22:55
FYI: feature-request posted.… – joce Mar 6 '13 at 23:21
