Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Earlier there was a review link (a link to in the top menu but now there's not. What happened to it?

Here's how the top menu looks for me:

No review link

Since I can see the review link on sites where I have more reputation I guess the amount of reputation required to have it shown has been increased. Am I right?

Looks like it is currently visible to users having >1k or >2k reputation points. I can see the link on SO but it is hidden on MSO. – Aziz Shaikh Nov 1 '11 at 9:36
Could be related to:… - see waffle's last comment - "Established user" is 1k rep. – Mat Nov 1 '11 at 9:39
@Mat I noticed this the last week or something so that may be it. – N.N. Nov 1 '11 at 9:50
Looks like the trigger is 1k. M.SO I have 1.4k and can see it. SU I have 3.4k and can see it. SF I have 930 and can't see it. – tombull89 Nov 1 '11 at 10:12
It's probably worth mentioning that the review section is still accessible if you type out the URL or bookmark it. – a cat Nov 1 '11 at 10:16
I just downed the requirement to 100 rep ... and added the awesome progress meter ... we need to update the answer here... – waffles Nov 11 '11 at 0:12
I used to see the link (when I had around 300 rep ... or maybe even less!) and I did do a few reviews. Although I can manually go to (the link is no longer there) I notice 500 rep is now required for the most basic review tasks. I suspect this may be because I failed a few of the 'tests' :-( – vegemite4me Aug 19 '13 at 8:43

You need to have 1000 rep (be an "Established user") to see "review" link. See comments to these posts:

Have you got a link to any source confirming this? Is there anything else that triggers the appearance of the review link, e.g. getting the Deputy badge at <1000 reputation? – N.N. Nov 2 '11 at 20:12
I asked similar question and got comment about it. – Andrei Petrenko Nov 2 '11 at 20:13
Could you please include the relevant information by editing your answer? – N.N. Nov 2 '11 at 20:15
confirmed ... I bumped up the review requirement, in general we want established users reviewing – waffles Nov 2 '11 at 23:24
@waffles This requirement makes sense in most cases but not in all, therefore I've put forth a suggestion… – N.N. Nov 3 '11 at 9:55
@AndreiPetrenko Do you mind updating your answer according to Waffles comment to my question and his updated answer I linked in the former comment? – N.N. Nov 11 '11 at 7:25
i used to have the Review Capabilities on several Stack Exchange sites and now I don't have the link anymore, is this like a sliding scale for the "Established User" Status? – Malachi Jul 29 '13 at 21:58
