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

During the review beta, it seems that deleted posts don't count against the daily maximum 50 close votes that may be cast per user.

However, I've noticed users voting up to 80-times, seen here from the beta review close stats:


How is this cap exceeded to such extent?

Not sure, but have you checked whether "Do not close" and "Skip" counts towards the number of reviews? – nhahtdh Jul 18 '12 at 6:13
I rarely select "Do not close"; but I often click "Not sure" to skip which has never counted as a vote. – Jason Sturges Jul 18 '12 at 6:15
I'm pretty sure at least "Do not close" counts. – Daniel Fischer Jul 18 '12 at 6:15
This actually has been brought up in the review beta thread, but I haven't checked whether they have changed anything to the mechanism. – nhahtdh Jul 18 '12 at 6:19

Both options "Do Not Close" and "Edit" also contribute to the action count. The option "Not Sure" does not contribute to it. It's basically like a tracker for how many posts you took action on. You know, that silly word "actioned" in the Reviewer badge description. Since this doesn't actually keep track of how many posts you've looked at overall, I'm guessing that badge is going to change when the new system goes out of beta.

The same logic is applied to all the review tasks. Anything that's not a "Not Sure" or "Skip" increases your action count.
