I noticed this answer (now since deleted, and 10k-only) on SO that had a number of canned comments which indicated to me that it had entered the Low Quality review queue.

Noticing the answer was still around, I went to the Low Quality queue to cast my delete vote to clean it up. However, when I went to the review queue, it showed 0 items to be reviewed. When I clicked on the "Low Quality Posts" link, I got the message:

There are no items for you to review.

However, when I went to the History tab, I saw the answer in the history. I then saw Bohemian's vote for the question, and clicked on the "Delete" link next to it, and I was taken to the review page where I could then cast my vote.

The question: if this was a valid item for review, how come it wasn't showing up in the review queue? I had flagged it as Not An Answer; could that cause it to be excluded from my review queue list?

Update: It happened again with this answer, which I hadn't flagged, so it's reproducable and not related to flagging.

I haven't naturally seen a LQ question in the queue in weeks; I've had to look at the history tab and vote from there.

My guess is that someone already "reserved their slot". So to keep 50 people from overrunning the same post, it only appears to the first N people who click on it. Then they have X amount of time to review it before they give up their opportunity. – Mysticial Apr 22 '13 at 15:16
My first instinct is caching. – Servy Apr 22 '13 at 15:24
@Sklivvz - so this isn't a bug? Can you please explain what it is? – LittleBobbyTables Apr 24 '13 at 15:24
