I went to review some close questions.

The first question I was given for my filter was


I clicked on the title to view the full question and edit it ( I wanted to remove one of the tags), but the link went to a page not found page


Why am I being asked to review a question that seems to have already been removed?

    The question was deleted about a week ago. It was either an audit or a review that started before it was deleted (but didn't get cleared). Nov 30, 2013 at 18:13
  • @JeffMercado surely the bug is that it should get cleared?

  • @JeffMercado it was an audit, I just tried to close it via the review page Nov 30, 2013 at 18:14
  • @benisuǝqbackwards that question seems to suggest my missing question was there as a 'tester' to make sure I was paying attention, jeffMercado suggests its a bug, do we know which it is?

  • @psubsee2003 in that case could the close page tell me its an Audit?

  • Click on the review link again. It was an audit... it says so now. Nov 30, 2013 at 18:21

    @TobyAllen the point is that it is an audit to test you (not a bug). As soon as you complete the review, it will tell you that it was an audit and whether you passed or failed. Nov 30, 2013 at 18:28
  • @psubsee2003 I understand that, but I didnt complete the review I click on the question link and it looked like a bug, I'm just suggesting it tells you its an audit when you click on the question also.

    Wouldn't that defeat the point of the audit @Toby? Nov 30, 2013 at 19:37
  • It might reduce the number of people like me who think its a bug!

  • @TobyAllen honestly, if the users who thought it was a bug searched meta first, they would find one the dups we linked, or now they will find your post which will point them back to the original. Nov 30, 2013 at 19:57
