Incorrect review 'counter'

The top bar counter isn't specific to your user, whilst the /review page counters are. This means… Reviewing a post in the queue that still requires 1+ other users review too, you won't see the ...

Force vote for close reason as opposed to immediate closure due to badge privilige

Why are my edits rejected (and why am I suspended from editing)?

When I process the review queue, I keep several points in mind: Does it improve the question? Is it timely? Is this a new user who needs to gain some reputation for increased engagement? Does it ...

Force vote for close reason as opposed to immediate closure due to badge privilige

You could leave a comment suggesting the question is a duplicate, rather than cast an actual vote, and hope someone else (perhaps even the author) picks it up from there. A workaround would be to edit ...

Revert a mistakenly approved Suggested Edit

What's the significance of the occasional red dot on the Review Queue button?
