have the right to know if I'm being reviewed Maybe... I mean, we're all being monitored in the sense that everything we do here is seen by other users. On top of that, the lowest rep users have most of their posts fed into review queues, you will have your edits scrutinised before being approved until you hit 2k rep. And anybody can flag something of yours ...

According to https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/158678/280883 Here are the full details on how the ban works. Most of the steps take into account the length of any previous review bans you've faced, including manual bans imposed by a moderator: If you fail three audits within a (rolling) 30-day period, you will be banned for 2 days if you have no ...

I COMPLETELY concur with @Zanna with the advice in the question. I have made the same categorical plea to specific users who have committed the same pattern of "reviewership" in the community where I moderate. When I did, I am careful not to come across as scornful, but with an advisory tone. Of course, everyone is free to review however they feel is ...

That particular comment is automatically generated by the system through the Low Quality Posts review queue. I'm not sure if there is a list of these (so you can copy them) but you can see all options here: Nowadays, the comments have some links in them, but the text hasn't changed significantly over the years. Other interesting links: Repository of ...

Review audits are frequently intentionally tricky and weird. It's a common practice on the Stack Exchange network designed to teach the reviewer to stop, look and listen. It's not unusual at Stack Overflow to find audit questions in the close vote review that have an accepted self-answer posted by the author of the question. My first instinct would be to ...
