The difficulty of some review audits in the /close and /reopen queues has been brought up here a few times recently. It's true: a few of these audits are difficult, if not outright misleading. We've tweaked the criteria for choosing them a few times now, and I'm reasonably happy with the results - but there've been some interesting suggestions for improvement too, and rather than trust my gut on this I'd like to make this a bit more democratic.

I'm providing links to 3 different sets of questions. Each represents a different strategy for choosing "known good" audits suitable for the close and reopen review queues - that is, questions which should not be closed.

Please review the questions in each set and vote for the set(s) you think are suitable. Down-vote the sets you think are unsuitable, and if you find a particularly poor example, post it in a comment under the corresponding set.

I won't mention the criteria used for each set at this point, in hopes of making this somewhat objective - but you can probably figure some of it out if you're paying attention. Just try to focus on the suitability of the questions themselves.

(Note that there is some overlap between these sets, since they were pulled from the same time period)

Could you generate similar sets for ServerFault and post it on the meta there? –  Ward Sep 14 '13 at 4:03
    
Just for clarification, all answers in the examples are considered for not to close/migrate, since I'd see some migrate candidates? –  bummi Sep 14 '13 at 7:11
    
Depending on the results of this review, I'll expand round 2 to other sites, @ward. The hardest part of this is choosing criteria that produce enough results, and this gets a lot harder on smaller sites. –  Shog9 Sep 14 '13 at 16:12

All of these examples expect a "leave open" or "edit" response, @bummi –  Shog9 Sep 14 '13 at 16:13
    
Why are you unwilling, apparently, to consider the obvious criteria for reopen audits -- that the question was actually reopened? –  Rosinante Sep 22 '13 at 22:25
    
Because there are so very few of those, @ros. Ridiculously few. "Didn't I just get this review?" few. –  Shog9 Sep 22 '13 at 22:38
    
@Shog9 In that case, is there any chance, on the other hand, of convincing you to implement the appeal button? We all know that the audits can't be perfect. But the 'failure' wording is strong to the point of giving offense to many. An appeal button might actually give you useful information, and would soften the offense. –  Rosinante Sep 22 '13 at 22:50

FWIW, none of these lists were picked randomly. –  Shog9 Sep 14 '13 at 18:49
