I was browsing through the tabs to see if there was anything new to review and no posts were showing up but when I went past "low quality posts" I noticed that it said "1 post" at the top but hadn't seen anything below it, so I went back to the tab and sure enough there was nothing there:


As I continue to refresh the low quality posts tab, it keeps saying there is still 1 post but nothing is showing.

Do you have any ignored tags? – John Nov 23 '11 at 19:31

That has happened to me several times as well, and I have no ignored tags. – Shawn Chin Nov 23 '11 at 20:21
This is still happening. At one time the "first answers" tab showed 1 post, the "low quality posts" tab showed 1 post, and the "late answers" showed 3 posts, all tabs not actually showing anything. Just to reiterate, I do not have ignored tags blocked, so it shouldn't be hiding anything. Where are these posts? – animuson Dec 1 '11 at 8:29

Apparently not the only cause (or the cause for this specific case), but one way for this to happen is that you have ignored tags and the post is (correctly) hidden from you for that reason. It still says that there is one post to review because, well, there is.

I have confirmed this by going here, ignoring the tag , refreshing, and observing that the "8 Posts" at the top does not change even though the page now only shows 4 posts.

The "Hide Ignored Tags" option that I am talking about is located at Profile -> Preferences.

Would that be something new? It's always shown me posts from ignored tags before, it just dims them like with any other list. Even if that is the case, should it not exclude those from the total count then? – animuson Nov 23 '11 at 19:34
Posts with ignored tags are faded, but they are still listed. – NullUserException อ_อ Nov 23 '11 at 19:36
@Null even if the user explicitly sets them as hidden (which is possible from your profile)? – John Nov 23 '11 at 19:51
I haven't set anything as 'hidden' though. I've only ignored a few tags that get faded. – animuson Nov 23 '11 at 19:52
@Null See my edit for why that is not always the case. – John Nov 23 '11 at 20:25
