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

So I've been watching the numbers for the low quality posts in the review system and I've been noticing a distinct trend.

They seem to be going down. (As of writing this the count is at 43.2K)

I was just wondering on the the numbers before and if the trend was going up? Personally I think the system is great and encourages me to look more at posts but I think the system is only a success if the numbers show it is.

So what do the statistics say?

EDIT: just to be specific I was mostly intrigued by this number(below)

I don't know about total low-quality posts, but I can tell you that, before the new review system was put into place, the suggested edits queue was getting full on a regular basis (which requires 200 unreviewed entries, I believe).

Since the new review system was put into place, this queue is regularly staying in the low double-digits or less. As I write this, there are currently three posts in the suggested edits queue.

On Stack Overflow? Or Meta? – Mystery Aug 10 '12 at 3:07
On Stack Overflow. The suggested edits queue is essentially irrelevant on Meta. – Robert Harvey Aug 10 '12 at 3:08
Unfortunately I get the feeling the quality of suggested edit review has not gone up. (<-- read: gone down I think, but I can't prove it) – Bart Aug 10 '12 at 3:25
@Bart: Unfortunately, I think you're right. – Robert Harvey Aug 10 '12 at 3:34
I'm not sure what the original number was but I remember the queue being 46K a day or so ago. – James Khoury Aug 10 '12 at 6:18
