What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Earlier there was a review link (a link to http://stackoverflow.com/review/) 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: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/75953/… - 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. – lunboks 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 SO.com/review (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. meta.stackexchange.com/q/110880/165129 – 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 meta.stackexchange.com/questions/110935/… – 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
