Related question - Where to ask for advice regarding a review audit?

I just ran into a review Audit:

enter image description here

The question for which the first post occured was: Are certifications worth it?

I checked the question, but could not find the answer on the page. In the review box, it wasn't possible to either down/up vote, nor flag or comment the post, since the quesiton is marked as wiki. The only actions available were: share(on the answer), Nothing needs to be done(review), Skip(review). Since the answer wasn't visible on the question page and I couldn't find the user, I clicked "Nothing needs to be done", assuming that it had already been deleted.

In retrospect, "Skip" probably would have been the better choice, but is this really a good review audit scenario? First-posts on wiki questions aren't even possible, are they?

  • The audit appeared on the "first posts" queue. The (up/down)vote on the answer should have been available, as should have been the "edit" and "delete" (for higher rep users) links under it. This smells like a bug.

This is indeed a bug, the answer shouldn't have appeared in the review queue (neither as an audit, nor as a regular review). The reason is that the question is locked, therefore it and its answers cannot be voted on or edited.

This is an old bug that resurfaced, I will let SE know about it.
