This may be related to my question A review audit tells you there's 5 close votes already.

I just failed an audit in the First Posts review queue. The question clearly stated that it was closed (Possible Duplicate link and everything) so I clicked No Action Needed. As the closed link was at the top of the question this seemed to be a reasonable course of action (more fool me).

I don't have a pre-audit screenshot as I wasn't expecting to need one. It basically looked exactly the same as the below apart from the score, which was displayed as 0.

Aarrrgghh

Here's the review link

  • Hmm... The post was apparently chosen because it was deleted by the community shortly after it was closed, so the bug is the presence of the "Possible Duplicate" banner on a First-Post Review, as you wouldn't have known that the post was closed otherwise.

  • The pre-audit screenshot would have shown zero votes, with no mention of [closed] in the title. The bug with the close votes being exposed has apparently been fixed already.

    Yes @Robert, it might be simpler to exclude questions closed as duplicates entirely from review audits to stop this from happening (though I didn't see the 5 close votes so it looks like that got fixed!) Jan 14, 2013 at 22:32

Posts that were closed as duplicates are now never chosen for audits. Good catch.
