No. If you feel that the post is improved by the edit, then the edit should stay. If I edit a fact into your answer, it means that I agree with everything you've said, I probably don't think I could've worded it better, and that the post can be that much better with this point you might've missed. Especially since we tend to delete "duplicate answers" (a ...

Here's the golden rule: Feel free to spoiler protect things, but if you don't heed the golden rule, you are doing it wrong. An example is this suggested edit of yours; hopefully now you can understand why it was rejected. I encourage people to edit posts that go astray of this golden rule. If you get bit by spoilers due to carelessly browsing through ...

If you feel something should be deleted in the low quality queue, go ahead and hit "Recommend Deletion". If it already has a comment, what I typically do is select no reason, but if you select the same reason as has already been specified, it won't leave a redundant comment. When a post hits 6 recommend deletion votes (and possibly with no "Looks OK" votes, ...

Since you've used up your daily votes, First Posts and Late Answer queues are hidden from you Because one of the key actions for the First Posts and Late Answer queues is to vote on them (in addition to whatever other actions are appropriate), those queues are apparently hidden when you've exhausted your daily votes. And there's apparently no message on the ...

It would be nice to have some comment templates that we could use as a base to modify, when the answer is otherwise valid but needs some clarification or extra detail that we (as reviewers and editors) cannot do ourselves. Something like this? Note: I copied the comment modal box from the 'Recommend Deletion'/'Delete' path. I opted to keep 'Link Only' in my ...

So you can filter to only review certain tags, but not to exclude tags. Not ideal, but it's all we've got for now.

I think If you don't put everything in spoiler tags you can go ahead. Basically the most secure ways to tell if something is worth to put into a spoiler tag are: If you don't know the part and just got spoiled If you already know the part and it is a major plot twist. Don't use it on stuff that's already 5+ years old and commonly known. Nobody wants a ...

According to What are review tests (audits) and how do they work?: This is currently active only on Stack Overflow, Server Fault, Super User, Programmers, Ask Ubuntu, Mathematics, and Puzzling. In other words, audits aren't active on Arqade. This is probably because (as you said) our review queues are usually pretty short. Barring exceptional ...

In the First Posts and Late Answers review queues, only 1 "Reviewed" or "No Action Needed" review takes the item out of the queue. While comments stating that a post is not an answer are nice, all of these posts required further attention. In these cases, the correct action would have been to flag the post as Not An Answer, marking them ...

TLDR: Don't focus on the giving of rep, focus on signalling to the editor whether their action was useful/helpful or not. You are focusing on the wrong thing. Don't focus on the giving of rep (you only give rep when you award a bounty), focus on the edit. The first thing to do is to decide is this edit good or not. To see if it is a good edit, lets looks at ...

For the first review See the review in question here. I reviewed it as 'Not an answer'. The actual review can be found here. As you can see, you reviewed the post with "No Action Needed". Hence the part of the feedback message saying If a post does not attempt to answer a question, then please flag it as Not an Answer. For the second review ...

As this is still an issue, I felt it would be best to (finally) post an answer to this. The solution to preventing blatantly plagiarized tag wikis and excerpts is to google the suggested edit text. I will attest that this takes no more than 15-30 seconds, at the most, even on mobile. If you, as a reviewer, do not feel that you have the time to spend less ...

The "too minor" rejection reason has been removed. The current advice is to either reject as incorrect (if applicable), or improve the edit if there's more to be improved. See this answer for details.

The red dot icon has always been a bit buggy in my opinion but this seems to be status-bydesign from what I can find about how the indicator works. (It might have been updated but if so I missed it). According to this main meta post the red dot will show for a queue if there are >=2 items in that queue at the time. That post also mentions the following ...

Indeed, there're only seven days in a typical week, you aren't mistaken. The skipped review tasks don't count either (so weird it would be otherwise). The review audits do count towards daily reviewing limits and towards the badge. Most possibly, the reason is the ambiguous terminology regarding time spans. As you may know, Stack Exchange considers an ...

This has been fixed on March 6th, 2019: Starting with the next build, we'll be showing an error message same way as we do on regular question pages:

Are they review items you completed or skipped? If it's the former, go to your profile, select "All Actions" then "Reviews". If it's the latter, things are a bit more difficult, and someone has had to perform a review action. Go to the review queue, then select "History". You can also filter to just your own reviews from there as well. If you're still ...

Nope, once you vote, it is a binding vote. The system is not set up for vote-takebacks in that sense. It's partially design, and partially because you are supposed to make sure that you review things carefully and accurately to avoid people robo-reviewing just for badges and the like. (See also review audits for more ideas of how SE is trying to make sure ...

For the original error it appears to be a one off error, someone goofed or Tim lost his keys. It appears to be that the error occurred after the delete vote was submitted but before the review was completed so probably as it tried to complete the review. Therefore, when you opened the review again (refreshed the page) as you had already actioned it you ...

Just want to say that it's fixed now.

According to Jarrod Dixon, Review is probably our heaviest database hitter, so we've had to add caching to those counts; usually it's 5 minutes on them. So this is a status by design via caching.

1. Question title Your title could be clearer, I'm not sure what this is asking: ELI5 — Steering Non-linearity A question title should be the actual question or problem you face: what is it about Steering Non-linearity that you need help with? From what I gathered from reading your question, you want to know the difference between Steering Non-linearity and ...

At present, the current way to use these queues is to either leave feedback using the canned comments, (which get written on the post by the Community user), mark the post as "Looks Ok", or edit the post in question. You can also perform an "Other Action" (see below) to also finish the review item. You can flag the post if it needs it, ...

Yep, the redesign is part of a wider overhaul of the Review queues that the Stack Exchange team have been (and continue to) work on. See this post on Meta SE for more information: Visual design changes to the review queues.* It's not something we had to sign up or 'opt in' for - as per the rollout plan at the top of that post, on Feb 23 the design was ...

They are combined using OR; I couldn't find a source on Meta Stack Exchange but here's some proof: this strange combination is just for science, of course There's no way to make it an AND filter, but as @pppery notes, it's not meant for a site like this with small review queues. You'd miss almost all items.

If you have at least 10k rep, once you've completed reviewing all items in a queue, or you go to a review queue with no reviews in it, you will be presented with this page. If you have less than 10k rep, you can also use the history portion of the the queue to view your previous reviews, and clicking the checkbox will allow you to view skipped reviews.

Comments have been getting some refactor-love, but not without a few issues. This should be fixed now.

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 ...

The Close Vote queue exists for one specific purpose: To determine whether or not a question should be closed. Editing a minor grammar or formatting issue is not a Close Vote review action. Open the question, do the edit outside the review queue. In the queue, you should only perform queue-relevant actions. An edit that doesn't change anything about whether ...
