What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

Stack Overflow's /review page has staggeringly high numbers of "Low Quality Posts" and "Close Votes". This can discourage potential reviewers from contributing, as it can feel like a hopeless task.

It would be helpful if the /review page somehow communicated "yes, these numbers are large, but we are making progress".

This will look... abysmal on Stack Overflow... –  casperOne Aug 11 '12 at 5:10
    
Really? I've been keeping an eye on "Low Quality Posts" for the past few days, and it seems to go down by a few hundred every day. Slow progress, but still progress. –  Matthew Aug 12 '12 at 16:41
    
Follow-up: Since I posted this question, the number of pending "Low Quality Posts" has dropped from 41.9k to 27k. –  Matthew Aug 19 '12 at 1:33
