This answer appeared in the Low Quality Posts review queue because of it's "length and content", according to the description of the queue. Since the answer was quite long, I assume that length wasn't the factor. I understand that the heuristic may not be public, but can anyone shed some light on this?

Was this a consequence of the migration, the rapid accumulation of downvotes, or some key phrase in the answer? I presume it wasn't a review audit.

    I'm guessing, but I think it's likely the downvotes. – C. Ross Sep 24 '13 at 14:06

    It looks like someone flagged it for being of low quality. The interface is anything but clear on what is actually going on. – George Marian Sep 24 '13 at 14:11

    @GeorgeMarian That possibility didn't occur to me, but since closure flags are funneled into the review queues, it makes sense that other flags would be as well. – John Bensin Sep 24 '13 at 14:26

Quality related flags heavily influence this, and the post had one quality related flag which was deemed helpful by a moderator, and the collection of down votes. While we do run quality metrics on questions and answers, we normally don't raise automatic concern unless a post is excessively long, or too short.

That wasn't an audit, but could very well become one in the future - the quality related signal is what we use to find those, and why mods are so particular when it comes to validating them.
