This little box*

enter image description here

occasionally tells me to review the suggested edits, in this case telling me that there are 5 of them that need review.

When I go to the review page, and review them, the number doesn't change, it just stays at 5 until I go to another page or refresh the current page.

It'd be nice if it was updated as I did the review, so I can see how many are left as I am going, so that I can have the satisfaction of watching the box number decrease while I am reviewing, topped with the warm fuzzy feeling of finally making it disappear.

I believe this used to happen with the previous suggested edits queue. – animuson Oct 11 '12 at 19:10

The real-time suggested edit count in the top nav was disabled a few weeks ago due to performance/inaccuracy issues. We may re-enable it in the future.

In the meantime, we've made the suggested edit count live again while you're actively working through the Suggested Edits review queue. That is, you should see an updated and accurate suggested edit count after approving or rejecting a suggested edit.

That's actually all I was asking for, really, was for it to update while I'm reviewing. – Peter Olson Oct 18 '12 at 23:10
