I am fairly new to reviewing suggested edits (as you can see in the picture), and I have noticed the existance of fake suggestions, which are used as tests to avoid users blindly approve them.

Fake suggested edit

However, all these tests I have found are edits that should be rejected, but are there tests of suggested edits which should be approved?

I am asking this because I maybe tend to consider too many suggestions as minor edits, and when I check the status of some of them, they have been approved by users with more experience in reviewing. I don't know if for users like me who aren't used to this system it could be useful to have this "good examples" that shouldn't be rejected as a reference.

I also know that if the edit is correct, more users will approve them and these rejects won't have too much repercussion, but I think the earlier we learn how to distinguish between minor and good enough suggestions, the better is going to work the reviewing queue.

    The problem is with people auto-approving everything, so no, there are no audits that require an approve. – Martijn Pieters Mar 19 '13 at 21:41

    These audits are not acting as guide to train reviewers but rather as "honeypot" to catch those who don't pay attention at all. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Mar 19 '13 at 22:52
  • By the way, keep rejecting as too minor if you think it is too minor. – Doorknob Mar 19 '13 at 23:10
  • Actually, it should only be rejected as too minor if they missed other stuff that needed editing. If it only needed one minor edit, then let it be. – Lance Roberts Mar 19 '13 at 23:46

No, there are no audits that should be approved (so far).

The goal is to let people know that they're doing it wrong, and hopefully get them to pay more attention.

  • Thanks for the answer. I asked this mainly focused on being less exigent with the suggestions, even though I know the common complaint is exactly the opposite. – A. Rodas Mar 19 '13 at 23:45
