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

First, know that I discovered this on the game dev SE, but i think it might apply to many SE sites that don't have a ton of questions.

Review Lists

On the review tab I noticed the total next to each option to review. Then when you actually click on one, surprisingly it would be empty.

Review First Answers

It took me a few moments to figure out that this was because it was on the day setting. To actual match the total you would have to click the "all" button. Essentially what I am saying is that this behavior is unexpected and maybe a more intuitive way of doing it would be to send the user to the page with "all" selected, therefor you wouldn't default them to seeing 0 posts.

These queues will eventually be replaced by "proper" review queues that fit well into the new review system. We won't be correcting the display of item counts for old review queues since we'd rather just build new queues out of them instead. :)

First Answers and First Questions are already turning into First Posts. Once the issues with the new queue are ironed out, the old ones should be removed and I believe Late Answers won't be far behind in one way or another.

oh wow somehow i ignored the top part and just looked at the outdated review, thanks – TMP Sep 16 '12 at 5:30

No, that wouldn't be a good idea, especially on Stack overflow where those counts were (previously) in the tens of thousands (that's a lot of work to compile the list).

Aside from that, these panels are in the process of being replaced anyways, so you won't have those options day, week, month, year, and all anymore. Just a single post at a time, until the posts run out. Cheers, the counts will match up. :)
