Review audit questions in a foreign language need a translated version so we can easily see if they are SPAM, migratable, or should simply be deleted

No, you're supposed to reject posts in a wrong language to the site. Requires editing means "The post is almost OK, it just need some formatting improvement". It should NOT be used when the ...

The point in keeping them is to see how often posts are being picked out as review audits and whether or not people are passing or failing the audits. Let's say someone complains that the audit is ...

Closing a question that's being used as a known good audit should immediately remove it from the audit pool

I dug into this and implemented a fix that I think should resolve the issue. Basically I added in a check when a question is closed: is this question a current audit and is it a "known good post&...

Review audits should not be counted to the count of daily reviews

Review audits are useful and should count (credit) towards the 'total number done', but shouldn't count (decrement) against the 'total number available'. As soon as the audit is revealed you should ...

How should you handle reviews when out of flags?

My mother used to say, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Same thing applies here. Never do something wrong just because you can't do it right. This applies to ...

Review ban reason and warnings

This was a manual ban by a moderator. That is the only way to get a review ban without failing audits. This is also why you didn't get a warning. Moderators don't have to give warnings to bad ...

Closing a question that's being used as a known good audit should immediately remove it from the audit pool

I'd go further: any action that would invalidate the audit should remove it from the audit pool, whether that's a downvote or a close vote. People often attempt to fix bad audits by opening the post ...

Answers which are considered too short to be a good answer shouldn't be used for review audits

They usually included a short (non comprehensive) description of the solution and a link to a howto with the full solution. So if the link breaks, there's no more a solution, and the answer is ...

Is it just me, or is this an obvious way to see in an instant whether or not a post to review is a test?

For example, if I have an Opinion-based filter, whenever I see a post that have been flagged as Needs details or clarity, I know it's a test (I enjoy clicking on the link to text posts before casting ...

No; pending reviews - including audits - are excluded from the timeline by design.

What does "Reviewed" mean in review audit results (vs "No Action Needed")?

"Reviewed" is always the result of doing something and then clicking "I'm Done". That can be flagging the post, up- or down-voting, commenting or editing. It's the same for audits, although you do ...

Audit fail message and our more friendly community

The intention of that message is to get your attention and to get you to slow down when reviewing. It seems like it accomplished both objectives, so I'm not finding an issue with the tone.
