Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I noticed that, when I review a low quality post, and I select "Recommend Deletion," I see the same post after few hours, when I restart reviewing low quality posts. Each time I restart reviewing posts, I click on the review link I see on the top of the page, and I click on the "Low Quality Posts" link I see on that page.

Am I supposed to see the same post twice? If I select "Recommend Deletion," I still think it should be deleted the second time I see it.
Reviewing low quality posts should be done once per post. Maybe it makes sense to show the same post when I select "Not Sure," but in that case it would make more sense to move the post at the bottom, when I review again low quality posts. (This would mean to record for which posts I selected "Not Sure"; I am not suggesting it should be done, as I understand it is not worth doing it.)

If this is the review feature that's in beta, then this is partially a dupe (it's been doing this for some time): The new /review is showing me stuff I've already reviewed – slugster Jul 15 '12 at 5:16

At the time, our review-invalidation logic was overzealous and not very user-friendly:

If many reviews were performed by the same user in a short period of time (as was the case for you), a fraction of them were invalidated. Then, those same tasks were given to you again, since you were no longer considered to have reviewed them.

This is fixed now: if a review would be invalidated, the buttons are instead temporarily disabled on the client, making it much more difficult to submit a review too fast.

It seemed strange that one could make so much reviews in few time, but I have would not have understood that would cause me to see the already reviewed posts. Thank you for your answer. – kiamlaluno Aug 9 '12 at 17:48
