I'm wondering why the 'First answers' review item for an answer by Cordel Michael to 'Can Kakashi use the jutsu he copied without the Sharingan?' is invalidated, as shown in the timeline for the post.

The timeline shows that the answer was not modified (no edits/deletion/undeletion) after posting. It is possible that some modification might have happened during the 5 minute edit grace period, but I believe even if it were so it couldn't have invalidated the review item based on the rules for invalidation as well as the timeline of events on this post.

  • The 'First answers' review item was created at 2021-11-13 03:50:56Z, simultaneously with the creation of the post. It was invalidated around 36 minutes later at 2021-11-13 04:26:45Z.

  • The corresponding 'Late answers' review item was created at 2021-11-13 04:10:20Z, which is around 20 minutes after the post was created1. This review item was not invalidated, since I was able to complete the review around 2 hours 50 minutes later at 2021-11-13 06:40:40Z.

  • I have looked at the following posts on Meta Stack Exchange, but none of the reasons given there seem to be applicable here:

So, why was this 'First answers' review item invalidated?

1: This makes sense since an eligible post cannot enter the 'Late answers' queue before 15 minutes from the time of its creation, and the process that sends it to the queue runs approximately once every 5 minutes (source).
