I just got back to reviewing on SO after a few months of inactivity, and I've been very surprised with the new review system, it seems to have changed a lot since the time I was using it a few months ago.
I like the new review system, but I don't really understand how the new limitation work.
Before, I used to be able to review hundred of posts in any category I wanted and do as I wanted. I actually found it fun to review posts.
But I've just tried again, and here is what I noted, which is probably intended in the new system, but I'd like to understand why the limitations:
- It seems to me the queue is almost always empty. Before, the queue was always full, I always had many posts to review at any time of day or night. Now it looks like I can consider myself lucky if the queues have 5 items to review in them. And they go out really fast, literally in 10 seconds the queue is empty again, so I can barely review 1 or 2 posts.
- Depending on the review category, I get a limitation after for example 20 or 40 reviews and have to wait 2 hours.
I'm just trying to understand why review was limited? I'd be happy to review hundreds of posts, but if I have to do this in increments of 20 an hour (and that's if I'm lucky if the queue fills up), I'm probably not going to do it anymore. This may be just me, but I find it quite counter productive, but maybe I do not understand the reasons why this was done as such.
Maybe this has been posted earlier on meta, but I haven't found it.
