The last two days (since the flag-bug to be exact) I noticed a delay of about 3 seconds when reviewing late answers, but only right before an audit which makes it easy to guess.

Is there a reason for the delay? Or maybe, am I the only one who sees this effect?

Nice catch, this query was taking way too long, and making audits obvious to anyone paying attention.

We've deployed some optimizations to the SQL query, so hopefully this is fixed now.

  • Shoot. Now I can't spot the audits without thinking.
