After passing a review audit, and after the congratulations screen is shown, I sometimes click the
stats-link to find out how many additional posts need review.
I noticed that the actual number shown, say
X, is usually (always?) 1 less then the actual number of posts that still need review (=
X+1). Because if I then just continue reviewing (using the
start reviewing now-link), it turns out that there is usually (always?) 1 more review (total =
X+1) that I can perform as compared to what was initially shown as need review (=
X). This seems to happen on all sites where I perform reviews (and which have audit reviews enabled), for either first posts or late answers. Obviously, this to the extend that
X+1 does not exceed my daily maximum reviews of 20.
Of course, while completing the remaining reviews the number of posts to be reviewed could indeed change. But I find it suspicious that very often there is a difference of exactly 1 as described above.
What's the actual reason for this apparent difference, or is it simply a bug (like "completing an audit review should not decrease the number of posts that need review")?
For a real world illustration, which happened when I completed this audit review:. The value that was shown for
2, but nevertheless in the next 2 minutes or so I was able to complete
3 more reviews, i.e. this one, and this one, and this one.
Note: in case
X=0 you better click the
start reviewing now-link, because often times there is 1 (=
X+1) review outstanding anyway ... as in this audit review.
