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.

I noticed that some posts I definitely already reviewed at some point show up again.

It is impossible for me to suppress these; clicking "review answer/question" increments the review count, but the post still shows up when I reload (and the review count correctly resets, which shows that at some level the system knows these posts are already reviewed).

In case a dev wants to have a look at the database, this is one of the posts that keep showing up in the low quality posts tab, no matter how many times I review it.

I do have 1k reputation and the Strunk & White badge, by the way.

is this still the case ? – waffles Nov 11 '11 at 1:56
@waffles Yes. . – lunboks Nov 11 '11 at 15:13
I am also having this issue as of yesterday. It was working fine before. Specifically, I'm looking at the Month filter of the Late Answers section. If I review an answer, the review count increments, but if I refresh the page or leave and come back, the post reappears and my count drops again. This has been happening with several posts, not just the same one every time. – Kris Harper Nov 16 '11 at 14:38
This is still the case. Another question on this issue was closed but this is still happening as of right now. – Ben Brocka Nov 23 '11 at 22:20
@BenBrocka Did you by any chance start reviewing right away when the feature was unveiled? Because those posts that won't disappear are mostly older ones I reviewed the day it was introduced. Might just be a coincidence, though. – lunboks Nov 24 '11 at 6:25
This has been happening for a few weeks now, if you disable random sorting in review and select "all", clicking page 1 again after reviewing the entire 50 posts will give you the same 50 posts and they are reviewable again. I figured this was because a posts needs a certain total number of unique reviews before clearing the low quality list? – chown Nov 24 '11 at 7:09
it is still happening to me. It happens only to some post not to others. I was opening a bug/question about the problem on meta and I got to this question. There is someone being aware of these comments and taking some action ? I mean, there is not any answer here...There is something I could do ?. This behavior is very upsetting. You are visiting the same posts again and again and again... – joaquin Dec 10 '11 at 11:28
Same here. I thought we could get the number of remaining posts to review down to 0 in no time. – sjngm Dec 13 '11 at 17:38
Same issue here on Programmers.SE. I'm stuck with 40 late answers for the "year" panel, and the "all" panel, and they don't disapear, whatever I do to them. – Matthieu Dec 16 '11 at 14:31
Has been reported on Super User as well @waffles – Sathya Dec 18 '11 at 11:12
For example this post doesn't disappear from my review list (late answers / month). – Matthieu Dec 20 '11 at 15:25
This is still still the case for me too. – mattdm Dec 21 '11 at 13:59
Retains the same 48 questions on superuser.com/review/… – jonsca Dec 22 '11 at 2:21
@waffles: I provided a video in my similar question. – animuson Dec 22 '11 at 17:32
I actually had a dream about this bug being fixed. Read into that what you will. :) – mattdm Jan 9 '12 at 15:04

This happened cause my implementation was a bit naive.

When removing posts from the global list:

  1. I removed all posts that were reviewed by 2 reviewers
  2. I removed all posts you reviewed in the last 7 days.

I assumed that someone else will review all the posts you reviewed in that 7 day window.

Clearly I was wrong.

Yes, when going through the thousand-post-deep review backlog with random ordering, that's not a likely event. As far as I can tell, this is fixed. – lunboks Jan 23 '12 at 14:00
Yay! Reviewing is fun again! – John Feb 5 '12 at 4:26
I always wondered why edited posts appeared in review, from reading this I take it that it needs two of edits/upvotes/flags/closevotes to disappear? – Neil May 5 '12 at 23:40
