I was recently (in fact just right now) browsing the review queue when I saw an off-topic question. I tried to downvote, but then I got a message that the question was deleted and I couldn't vote on it.

I believe this is a bug. If it isn't then please correct me, but I don't see a reason for a deleted question to be reviewed.

Edit: I just read about review audits, but they aren't even active on here, so it couldn't be that either.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Dennis I didn't know you could link to reviews. Will do next time I ask a question like this. \$\endgroup\$ – FireCubez Jan 7 '19 at 13:48

This was most likely just bad timing.

I assume the question you were reviewing is What date encoding could this be?.

  • It was asked at 10:57:13 UTC.
  • It entered the review queue at 11:00:01 UTC.
  • It was deleted 11:12:35 UTC.
  • It left the review queue at 11:14:53 UTC.

So the question was removed from the review queue because it was deleted, it just happened with a delay of 2 minutes and 18 seconds.
