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

Due (largely) to the massive influx of edits because of, the suggested edit queue is very very nearly full.

To stop the cleanup grinding to a halt (users won't be able to edit once the queue is full), can those with the approve-edit-privilege pay extra attention to the queue size until we're done?

In other words... can we activate the bat signal?

Some of the questions those edits are on look like they'd be better of deleted than edited. (Mostly the future ones that are looking for speculation) – Flexo May 1 '12 at 14:44
Vote to delete or flag to delete old crap questions, don't edit them. – user7116 May 1 '12 at 18:41
@sixlettervariables And flag for moderator attention if they are too old to gain enough close/delete votes. – casperOne May 2 '12 at 13:58
You used the wrong symbol :( – Manishearth May 4 '12 at 15:23
It would be great to make the edit queue visible to everyone with edit privileges at times like this. – razlebe May 4 '12 at 16:03

@random - great! Thanks – razlebe May 4 '12 at 16:26
seems like the 50 vote cap is a bit inconvenient during this time of heightened activity. I just burned though 50 votes and the edit queue was bigger at the end than when I started! – shanethehat May 5 '12 at 15:08
Saw the link in chat, dropped it here. Guessing it's a look at the latest made, not the latest pending @mrl – random May 8 '12 at 14:08

Currently at 154... Most of them by:

  1. vyegorov doing quite a good job of cleaning up questions from what I've seen.
  2. whiteknight who seems to be removing on a number of off-topic closed questions.

According to Waffles answer on Do we need a Bat-Signal on Meta, calling in help when the edit queue is full?, the extended queue is almost full...

One last bump because I'm out of votes and it's still at 144. Over to you all...
