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


I was messing around with site settings, something I often do to relax in the evenings, when I happened to glance at the /review queues. I recoiled in shock, unwilling to believe my eyes - the usually empty Low Quality queue suddenly sported over Twenty-One Thousand new items!

We are slowly finding ways to classify posts that need extra review so you may see this queue go up on occasion. Some of these posts may be ok and some of these may need a bit more attention.

We really appreciate any extra people who can help clear the backlog and help keep our quality high.
