What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I was reviewing today and noticed a couple of tests, I knew they were tests because Community raised them.

The tests are great and I agree 100% with "kicking blatant abusers out of the queues automatically" as per http://meta.stackoverflow.com/tags/review-suspension/info

Is it possible to camouflage these tests by hiding Community? The tests would be better if they were disguised and came from real users (who have generously written some tests)?

Dunno why, but I've always(>=80% times) failed those audits. :-/ –  hjpotter92 Mar 9 '13 at 5:44
    
I'm up for writing some bad questions and answers if moderators want it. I'm usually constantly refreshing the review page anyway just to have something to do. –  Prof Pickle Mar 9 '13 at 6:03

I don't think people whom these tests are made for will notice. –  Juhana Mar 9 '13 at 6:57

See Stop using real accounts in suggested edit audits

Suggested edit audits are special. During the audit, the edit will be (falsely) attributed to a random user on the site. Once the audit is passed or failed, the user is replaced with the Community user so that the reviewer isn't confused into berating the random user (who has no clue that the system is impersonating him)

Sorry I think I made a mistake.

I was reviewing again and what I believe I saw was Community is only revealed once you pass the test.

I cant go back (browser back button) to confirm.
