The all new /Review system is awesome. On SF we've burned through the Low Quality queue but the Close Vote queue seems stuck at 1.6k.
It appears that the size of the close vote queue is only reduced when a question is actually closed. This means that people can do considerable ammounts of work and have little to show for it as they didn't cast many final votes.
I think a better way to count the work would be to sum the total votes currently required to clear the queue. Using this accounting method when people work on the task the total will drop by the number of close votes cast so they can see that the work they did achieved something. Presumably Don't Close would do something too.
Sure, it's just numbers but numbers matter and seeing them change is more incentive than seeing them stay the same.
