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

If I stumble upon a post that is in my review queue, and I upvote/downvote it, edit it, or whatever would cause it to be marked as reviewed when reviewing, does it count as reviewed towards the new badges?

or only when you interact from that dashboard does the post count?

You need to interact with it (and click "I'm Done") from the review page. If you interact with it independantly before you see it in the review page, you will need to interact with it again to enable the "I'm Done" button. Similarly, if you encounter it in the review page, go to the actual post, interact with it directly, and return to the review page for it, the "I'm Done" button will not be active, and you will need to do something else to the post to get it to count as reviewed.

This is basically correct. (Source: I implemented it.) A couple notes: if you've already interacted with a post, we try not to give it to you in the review queue. Also, if you click through to a post from review and interact with it, you can then refresh the review page to enable the "I'm Done" button. – Emmett Oct 3 '12 at 18:17
Did not know refreshing the page enabled the "I'm Done" button! Thanks! – yoozer8 Oct 3 '12 at 20:18
