No, you should not. Skip them and let somebody with a clue decide if the addition makes sense or not. I skip many such edit suggestions myself.

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 ...

No, it's not a bug. Upon accessing the review queue, answers dating all the way back to a few years ago can be seen, as the reputation thresholds for Late Answers have been changed. Answers are now eligible to go into the queue if the person answering has any less than 50 reputation earned on the site rather than just 1 reputation. It may well have been is ...

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, ...

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 ...

Thank you! It is indeed a bug — it is fixed and the patch should be rolled out shortly. See also 404 after recommending deletion in "Low Quality Posts" queue.

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 ...

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 ...

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:

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Grace explains the problem: As determined from earlier discussions, the retag privilege serves a lot more confusion and a lot less of its benefit due to the suggested edit system. It must be done away with. It will be done away with. ♪ In light of this decided course of action, we're going to need a new snack for the road between "Create Tags" at ...

You can review suggested edits at 2k, and tag wikis at 5k. Previously, we didn't have an easy way to separate them, so you got access to the whole thing at 5k. Now, you get access at 2k and just don't see the stuff you can't handle.

You can see the details here but basically Leave Open/Closed will remove the item from the review queues after 3 "leave" votes (or one mod leave vote) and the votes will start to age as if the question had 100 views, even if it doesn't. So if a question gets 3 leave open/closed votes it's less likely to actually be closed, as the votes will start to age and ...

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 ...

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.

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.


2

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.

From the MSO post about changes to "Close as Duplicate" (emphasis in original): So here are the changes we made: We've changed the instructions everywhere to indicate that the answers to the original question must solve the dupe’s problem. That means that the original must have an answer † When a question gets closed as dupe, instead of just ...

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 ...

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

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 ...
