FAQ says there's audits for Close Votes queue. But I've noticed there's no audits when you filter to duplicates only.

Is it intentionally?

  • Seems to be the case, just did my 40 today with duplicate filter on and didn't get a single audit either. Perhaps duplicate audits would be too obvious, and/or given duplicates inherently require more time than normal close votes it's sufficiently obvious when someone is screaming through one from # of reviews/time period that audits aren't necessary?

  • I don't see why duplicate audits would be any more obvious than the suggested edit audits. We're not trying to trick people, just make sure that they're paying attention @joe Jul 29, 2013 at 10:47
  • They'd be either more or less obvious than other close audits, because they have to include a duplicate. I guess you could choose random questions and random duplicates, but if you're looking for voted-against-duplicates that aren't debatable, I think you'd have a hard time finding good (obvious but not too obvious) ones automatically.

  • Another possible duplicate audit would be to simply give an exact duplicate as target, same user and everything. Maybe a new word in the title so its clear that there are two questions. Like @CodyGray, said audits arent tricks just tests to check that you are awake. Aug 2, 2013 at 15:38
