When passing a review audit, the number of review tasks completed is increased, even though the audit is not a real review task.

My question:
If I passed the audit by flagging the post (for example, flagging a new post as low quality), why shouldn't my "helpful flags" counter be incremented as well?
Shouldn't this flag be counted just as the review task is counted?

    If I'm right it isnt even possible to flag an audit for something because if you press the flag link you have already passed the audit. – Daanvn May 23 '13 at 10:00
  • Which review audit? You're not able to flag during edit/CTV reviews. – hjpotter92 May 23 '13 at 10:01
  • @hjpotter92 I believe this is relevant mainly to "first posts" – Shai May 23 '13 at 10:03
  • let's not worry about whether you can or cannot flag. @Shai is just greedy and wants extra flag count to get badges :P – ronalchn May 23 '13 at 10:11
  • @ronalchn - you see right through me... can I flag my own question? ;-) – Shai May 23 '13 at 10:37

You can't flag the post given for review-audit.

If you click the flag button, then the system will show you the message

So, the flag count will not be incremented as you didn't flagged it(even after flagging one can get increment in flag count when that flag was found helpful by any moderators/ 10k + users).

  • well, the fact that it is technically difficult to implement does not change my argument: should or should not these flags be counted. How to do it - it's an alltogether another question... – Shai May 23 '13 at 10:05

    @Shai: you didn't flag anything when you click on flag on a review edit. Why should that count as a valid flag? You don't even get to choose a flag reason. – Mat May 23 '13 at 10:08
  • Is it also true that clicking the flag, on an audit where flagging is not appropriate, is enough to fail an audit? e.g. browsing reasons why it might be flaggable... – hayd May 23 '13 at 11:30
