Well, while approving edits today.. in my opinion I came across a slight problem. Users serial-approving edits without even checking the content.

I question whether there should be some sort of penalty for this.. if x amount of approvals a user has made have been rejected by every other user doing the approval at the time... lock the privilege or something?

For the record, I do understand there are various other questions regarding this very same thing, however in my reading, while there were propositions for dealing with such.. what I had in mind didn't seem to appear.

    There are regular review audits with penalties if you fail too much of them. – Toon Krijthe Mar 4 '13 at 21:41
  • @ToonKrijthe The "penalty" is just an interval when you can't review I believe. Perhaps this needs to be stronger (altogether different discussion though). – Asad Saeeduddin Mar 4 '13 at 23:07

Let's stop with the calling out of specific users. This sort of public shaming never ends well and it looks like a few folks here have already started retaliating.

Just flag one of the user's posts, explain what you're seeing, and let the moderators handle this privately.

For what it's worth, we already have an audit system in place that blocks folks from /review if they fail too many audits.

    I honestly didn't mean for the shaming to happen. I rarely review and this was the first case I saw. – Daedalus - Reinstate Monica Mar 5 '13 at 0:14
