Over the past week or so, on some SE site, I failed an audit review. And this happened after I used the "edit" link during such review. It was about a terribly formatted question, so I used the "edit" link to be able to read the source of it.

To double check what I seemed to have noticed, later on I (intentially) repeated a similar "edit" during a similar review (which I recognized as an audit review also, sorry for "testing" in production ...). And sure enough: I also failed that audit review.

So I suspect that what I asked about before, in "Missing cancel button when editing some audit review questions/answers reveals it is an audit review" (still tagged with right now), no longer applies.

I cannot find any kind of announcement (or question tagged with ) about this change in such reviews, hence my question: Does edit of an audit review question/answer now always result in a failed audit?

    @DWin I don't understand your comment, want to try again? – Pierre.Vriens May 12 '18 at 4:55

    This happened to me to on SO just yesterday. Same situation: poorly formatted question, tapping "Edit" immediately failed the audit. This has to be a fairly recent change; previously, submitting a suggested edit would pass the audit. – JonathanDavidArndt May 15 '18 at 22:35
