Some sites have review audits, and some don't. Which ones currently do and what is the criteria for activating this feature?

    You'll know they're enabled on a site if you fail one. ;)

    @Laura But seriously, the FAQ on audits should mention which sites they are on. Right now it says "StackOverflow only", which is obviously out of date... not to mention inconsistent with branding guidelines.

  • @Thisismuchhealthier. The MSE faq posts are pretty much entirely community maintained. They're going to be a little out of date. (I don't know offhand a complete list where they're enabled, which is why I didn't post a real answer.)

1 Answer 1


As per Rory's comment on the FAQ you linked:

currently they are active on Stack Overflow, Super User, Programmers and Server Fault. – Rory Mar 29 '13 at 12:34 [emphasis added; note the timestamp is a year old.]

This answer-in-a-comment seems to omit Mathematics, as per the comment you linked, and Ubuntu according to @Thisismuchhealthier. (Thanks!)
Please feel free to edit in any others as they arise, or comment with some kind of supportive link, and I'll edit it in myself.

Can't speak to the criteria for implementation, but I'm guessing this is decided internally on a per-site basis, maybe sometimes spurred on by feature requests from users (e.g., Drupal has one going).

    They are also active on Mathematics, as far as I know.

    @Werner Correct, I get them all the time. This FAQ post needs an update. Here is the filter for review-audits tag covering all meta sites. I found Programmers and Ubuntu in addition to those already mentioned.

  • @Thisismuchhealthier.: yup, I don't see any meta-sites other than Programmers in that filtered search's list of results except Drupal, which is requesting review audits be implemented. Commented Jul 24, 2014 at 0:23

    I'm pretty sure these six are all: SO, SF, SU, Math, Programmers, Ubuntu. My search for "audit" on the metas of other large sites turned up nothing. cc: @Werner

  • @Thisismuchhealthier.: I updated the FAQ post knowing that it was on Stack Overflow, but wasn't sure about other sites. Then I posted this question to collect that information.

  • @Werner Okay. Now I edited these six in. By the way, I disagree with faq-proposed, the existing FAQ post on audits logically collects the information in one place.
