This appears to be intentional. As of 1700 UTC October 8, the backlog queue has been reviewed. The site-wide change is being discussed in this answer/question: https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/267080/165931 I'd like to try raising the reputation for getting enqueued to the Late Answer reviews to 50 and reconsider upping it to 100 at some point in the ...

You can always ask the author in [chat] or officially here on meta like you did. I can't see anyone getting too worked up if you are using a comment for kind, critical feedback to a poster. The text you selected is a canned response in the /review queue that you'll earn once you reach that reputation milestone.

This post from StackExchange Meta satisfactorily answers the question: Why review system disable the “First Posts” and “Late Answers” if I reached daily upvote limit? I think it is because the First Posts and Late Answers Review tasks not only allow you to make necessary edits as you see fit, but also upvote and downvote questions or answers which you ...

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 review task any more on /review but it'll still increment the top bar counter. If you've reviewed a post outside of a queue, you won't be able to review it again. ...

No - this is by design. (And you are correct it is a subtle point between how flagging works differently within and without the review UI). The review tool is intended to get people to close things naturally. Flags are for severe issues where the site is actively being harmed and not just for routine cleaning. Of course, when the site is new, you can't ...

This is a known behavior where others can take review tasks in the time between when you looked and when your request hit the server. To check on this, you can look at the review history for the queue that just has shown no tasks to see who handled the items that were just recently outstanding. This is far more common on large sites (like Stack Overflow) ...

Don't worry, this happens to all of us and therefore it's a good thing that Suggested Edits require two reviewers. You cannot change your decision, the system simply doesn't allow it. Even ♦ moderators cannot change your review, though of course we can review the suggested edits ourselves (just like two regular users would). What you could do is ...

Reviews are not changeable - if you mess up, you can always fess up. Moderators do it all the time - we chat or fix as needed when we mis click, mis read or just mistakenly think. Better to go back and fix it in my experience. Good thinking taking action to hunt it down and flag or otherwise get the result you wish you had chosen initially.

The exact algorithm used to denote whether a post is low quality has not been released publicly to prevent gaming the system. However, from the little information released on Meta.SE, it seems each post is given a score based on its content. Good things increase the score and bad things decrease it. The old 10k tools used to show this raw score directly, ...

You are always allowed to review pending suggested edits on your own posts. In this case, the user reviewed one of your edits to their question: https://apple.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/59018 The user will have received a notification like this in their inbox notifying them that their post has got a pending suggested edit: Clicking this item ...

I agree the naming of the options is confusing here. The solution you want is Looks Good. Basically Looks Good means I have reviewed the post and taken all the actions I can do. Skip always means I don't know what do to here - leave this in queue for another reviewer. See this question about what the buttons do and this one for why this came about

Yes - the edit history allows for this quite nicely. Click the time link to the edited by community icon and then roll back to the version you would have liked to keep.

I've had a look at your original question (including the full timeline) and thought I'd share my thoughts even though I wasn't one of the close voters. Is it on topic? I recall reading your question not long after it was posted and thinking to myself that it was probably off-topic for the following reason: Questions asking to recommend or find a Mac, ...

Some "answers" aren't salvageable, such as those which basically say "tried everything, still doesn't work, the software s*cks" or something along these lines. It's always ok to leave a comment in such cases, I tend to use something like You've posted this as an answer, which is only for things that directly answer the question asked. If you have a ...

If all else fails there is always the option of flagging a post for mod attention and including a message when flagging.

The following will now indeed read as quite broad. It lists the most probable of the possible angles to approach the problem I can think of at the moment. If the question can be edited into form again, I do not expect all aspects to be covered there: The problem – or goal – is arriving at an as objective measure as possible to enable informed decisions ...

It looks like the new site theme has fixed this problem:

[I know this isn't an answer, but just to keep it in one thread - not worth a separate question, I didn't think] Since I hit my 10k rep, this has become a constant source of irritation to my usually well-under-control OCD. More than half the times I refresh the main questions page, I see a number of flags. The number of times this matches the number of ...

There are many reasons why this may occur. If you've handled a post outside of a queue yourself, then you won't be able to handle it inside a queue. If you've handled a post in a queue that requires someone else (or multiple other people) to handle it too, then you won't see the review task any more but it'll be shown in the count in the top bar, for other ...

I presume you are referring to this review: https://apple.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/54954 Even though you've added a comment, it would appear that you selected the No Action Needed option. Even by 'reviewing' the post by adding a comment, the No Action Needed button is still enabled on the review page. It is possible that you may have ...
