About two weeks ago I performed some reviews from Low Quality queue. Per my recollection, back then I commented on about 60-80 link-only answers.
Today, I checked posts I commented from review queue.
As far as I can tell almost 40 posts remained unchanged. About 7-8 answers have been improved by their authors. The rest of commented posts may have been removed, but I can't tell how much because comments made to deleted posts disappear from the list at my profile page.
That so much of my comments appear to be in vain made me wonder how this review is expected to work? Was I supposed to check it later, maybe after a month or two, or three or more?
