I have for weeks now been wondering why do I always see a certain number of reviews pending but when I go check the reviews' queues there are none.

Today it got worse when on the main page of the site I see 6 review pending :

And when I go on the review page the number becomes 8, however all review queue are empty :

Am I missing something ? Is there anything in the 10k tool that allow me to review items aswell and that I wouldn't have noticed ?

  • I never see that number at all! (even though I do have a Review button) Is that something that appears above 10k or something?

  • @Simon, there's an under-10k version that just shows suggested edits. It then starts showing all reviews once you hit 10k. Sep 17, 2014 at 12:48

Did you skip any? If you skip a review, the existence of the review in the queue hasn't gone away. However, their presence in your queue runs (which are what the counts on the left side of the page you linked are based on) has been removed.

For example, I just did some reviews on a single queue over on another site, cleared straight through the suggested edits queue but I skipped two. Now the count at the top is two higher than the total number of items I see in queues, as Suggested Edits is listed as "0" since from my perspective as a reviewer I've cleared that particular queue.

  • That is entierly possible. Is there anything about the wrong number in the notification or should I just avoid skippind reviews ?

  • @WizLiz The notification tells you how many reviews are left on the site, period. We were looking into some changes that'll change the icon to reflect whether or not you as a user had reviews left, but the number will still stick around since it still indicates "I may have skipped some stuff but there's still stuff that needs someone's attention".
