While reviewing posts in the Low Quality Posts queue I noticed that the available delete reasons were alternating between different options.

Every second time the first option says:

This does not provide an answer to the question. Once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post; instead, provide answers that don't require clarification from the asker.

And the other half of the times the first option says:

This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post.

What is the reason for this alternation? And can it be fixed?

It depends on the reputation level of the person whose answer you're reviewing. If they have too low a reputation to be able to post comments, the first option will be used. If they have enough reputation, the second will be used.

  • You are right. I hadn't realized that one of the users had enough reputation to comment and that that actually triggers a change in the wording. It all makes sense now. Thank you. – kasperd Jul 22 at 7:43
