I skip the question, just as I would where I don't feel that I fully understand what is going (that's often a problem when I do reviews over on Stack Overflow). Unlike Stack Overflow, we have a surfeit of willing and qualified reviewers to provide the review feedback we need, so the risk of harm to our site quality from skipping reviews is very low compared ...

A grey dot appears next to the review queue if there is something to review in that queue. This grey dot turns red if there is a sufficiently large number of reviews within that queue, denoting some urgency in reviewing that specific content. At that time, the actual review queue button also gets a red dot. Here is that view on Stack Overflow: The Reopen ...

While only some of the larger sites have automated review checking, the moderators are in a position to suspend review privileges for users if necessary. Thus if you believe there is a pattern of behaviour to be addressed, raising a meta question about it may be appropriate. Ideally, such a question won't 'out' an individual but will rather highlight for ...

This was introduced on September 5th, 2014. This is live across the entire Stack Exchange network. I've used it once. The motivation for providing this options stems from the ease with which certain insignificant edits are considered helpful when the moderation requires additional edits. That is, when someone makes an edit that the moderator (anyone with the ...

Well indeed I don't take it seriously because it's not a serious feature. Some users already took away its functionality long ago and as barbara mentioned I've not seen a single new user question in the reviews since a year and some months. Probably the review system distributes the reviews to some users and locks for others to (wildly guessing here) reduce ...

There is a difference between "not acting on a close vote" and voting to "Leave Open" a question. Not acting (or choosing "Skip") removes the post in question from your review list, while voting to "Leave Open" has an impact on the review list displayed for other users (read further). You are able to view the previously reviewed close-votes by clicking on ...

You have to refresh yourself – or install a browser addon, what does it for you (update: builtin function in Opera). To answer the question in comment: I am a happy user of Firefox and can only say something about this, but for a start the search keywords for addons of other browsers should be “automatic tab reload” or “automatic tab refresh”. I found two ...

Since you now have more than 10K reputation, the number in the status bar no longer displays the number of reviews in your queue, but the number of questions currently in any queue, see https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/212225. (This is in addition to the caching issue Werner pointed out, see https://meta.stackoverflow.com/a/266018.)

This has been updated to something that clearly reflects the possibilities available to the reviewer; an updated mouse icon as well: Yes, please change this. The following highlights some of the visual problems: "No Action Needed" is inactive, while "I'm Done" and "Skip" are active: The differences are barely visible, even on mouse-over (apart from the ...

Keep in mind that the processes are set up for the entire network, and in some (many?) cases the nature by one of the largest networks - Stack Overflow - governs the implementation. There you typically deal with a sharks den of coding experts. Voting still reigns supreme in terms of the Stack Exchange ranking mechanism. We tend to favour the one direction (...

Two suggestions here: We already have a method for converting answers into comments - flagging a post for moderator attention. Don't let the review queues define your actions. Go to the post and flag it. If it does warrant a review, you can find still find the post by viewing the Low Quality Post history tab. Alternatively, click the Back button on your ...

It seems that the review queue for First Posts is broken. This non-answer (now deleted and only visible for 10k-users) showed up in the queue for "Low Quality Posts", but not for "First Posts".

It seems the "First Posts" review queue is working properly again. Congratulations to everyone who was part of the "150 reviewable First Posts" party in the late evening of March 27th. ;-)

I don't like the automated version of screening every detail on the site, though I see the need for it clearly. But We should be able to discuss this issue with robo-reviewers instead of ignoring the individuals and handling them super indirectly with a major code implementation. We had this discussion mostly with Papiro and others but they don't care. I ...

Here's a less hack-ish (but still suboptimal) way: If you don't want to take an action, go back to the list of review queues (using the "back" button or by clicking on the "Review" link on the top left). The post you were just looking at will be temporarily removed from the queue, so if you select it again, you will see a different post. (I don't know at ...

Did you ever have similar thoughts/concerns? No. The use of the review queue should not guide you on things that require attention. If you see something that needs attention and it's not in the review queue, that should not deter you from doing something. You can use the review queue as a gauge, but if something needs addressing, manage it. Users are ...

This is status-bydesign as certain review-related actions are considered rate-limiting. The following was taken verbatim from Why am I unable to continue reviewing first posts after reaching the vote limit?: Yes, it's definitely by-design. The following tools are available to you when reviewing first posts from the review queue: Voting up/...

1. Ignore I will suggest just to ignore such childish behaviour. Any harm the robo-reviewers may do is negligible and do not hurt anybody. Actually, I earned two badges one of the last days for something I did not know exist. First, I accepted an minimal edit somebody had done (obviously I reviewed the question according to the system). Thereafter, I had ...

while i agree with Charles Stewart that there are problems, i sometimes want to look at the item again, and skipping precludes that possibility. hitting the "back" arrow on the browser leaves open the possibility to return. (i'm quite happy to skip an item that i know nothing about.)

A few weeks ago, we added the ability to see reviews you've previously skipped. If I understand this request right, the existing skip option now behaves like the defer option you were asking for, so this request is now obsolete (or, if you're feeling charitable, completed).

Here's a hack-ish way to defer your review: Remember the URL (copy-and-paste it somewhere), and click Skip. While this will remove it from the review queue view (since it's been skipped) you can still access the review via the copied URL. When you're ready to re-review the item, paste the stored URL; Click the Skip button but remember the post involved in ...

What I'll propose is a little bit different of the review tests as they exist now. What I've noticed is that the post is cleared from the review queue when it's seen one time. What I can be done it's to modify the system and let the post on the review for 2 or 3 review, or for X minutes AFTER the first review. In this case if robo-reviewers make a different ...

I'll just briefly say some ideas I have concerning the improvement of the review quality: Comments on reviews: Each suggested edit would have a comment thread, allowing the reviews to be commented. These comments would be received by the reviewers and possibly the editor (but I'm not sure whether that would make a good idea). Review flags: This has been ...

It appears that the new bar at the top will display a real-time notifier to the left of review (on the right). It's not exactly the functionality that was sought after here, but it's close enough.
