So, the edit queue on SO seems to be full for the last days or so. That's a tough situation. What I saw is that every time somebody raises this issue here on Meta the queue starts to drop significantly (at least that's what I saw yesterday, when it dropped within 10 minutes by 50 edits).
This spawns the thought in my brain that there are actually many high-rep-SO-users here on Meta which are willing to help with that, but simply do not bother to look at the queue or even Stack Overflow itself (anymore).
Would it help if we had some kind of "status of the parent"-section here in the header of Meta, which displays such information and raises
bathelp-signal whenever the queue gets alarming high?
