There's something wrong with some review audit like this First Questions one. I recognized the question from the Hot Network Questions (and the 6k views is also a giveaway - interesting that it isn't rounded!), so I clicked the upvote button. Normally, that would immediately make me pass the audit. Now, only the 'Other action' option becomes available and upon clicking that, you fail the audit.

I don't see any JavaScript errors in the console, and this happens both in the latest Firefox and Safari on macOS 11.6.1.

Here is a screencast.

Also reported on Meta Stack Overflow: I didn't pass when I downvoted a deleted answer that had negative score?

    Thanks for reporting. I'm looking into this right now. This is probably related to a recent change I just got out. Edit: I was mistaken, this is not related to my change (and fix linked below).

    Looks like I jumped to conclusions too quickly on this one - my linked fix is unrelated to your issue outlined here, your report just came in at the same time as I was seeing the other issue. I can't confirm whether this is an intentional change, I do see the "Other action" part being enabled after your upvote. Would that pass the audit properly?

  • @HamVocke I can try, but that would destroy the example. I'm not sure it's reproducible yet. I am glad you fixed the other bug, that one was way more important :)

  • @HamVocke no, that doesn't pass the audit: stackoverflow.com/review/first-questions/30293284 (don't worry about the failed audit, but this is the last time I'm going to do that experiment :P)

  • @HamVocke I've just failed this SO First Answers audit. I knew it was an audit as I was looking at the question and the answer wasn't there. Downvoting didn't trigger the audit response as before, so I selected other action, only to be told I'd failed the audit and was now review-banned. If up/down-voting is, alone, no longer sufficient to pass an audit it'd be nice if that was made clearer.

    @HamVocke it might be related to earlier bug reports of mine: meta.stackexchange.com/q/371240/295232 and meta.stackexchange.com/q/370631/295232.

  • @DavidBuck Downvoting and then "Share Feedback" will pass the audit (though the downvote is unnecessary if you know it's an audit). Hopefully, raising a flag will also pass, but I haven't tested that. Nov 9 at 13:57

    @AdrianMole Good to know - but until yesterday, downvoting alone was enough to pass an audit. Today, it's not and I'm in review-prison as a result...

    Oh, shoot me. I've just failed another audit for the same reasons as the OP and got a second ban - now for upvoting a good question. "We suspect that you are not actually reviewing the tasks." is a pretty unpleasant reaction for being banned for upvoting a good question. Why do you need to upvote AND click looks OK? Surely upvoting should implicitly be looks OK?
