I just noticed on the main site that I lost review privileges, and after a bit of confusion, noticed that it was because the rep required was brought up to 500, which I lack.

However, I noticed the description of the privileges description for 125 rep still mentions gaining access to the review queue, which is now inaccurate. This should probably be fixed.

Not sure if this should be considered a separate issue, but I still have access to the review page, just not access to any individual queue. Just a page of grayed out links – StephenTG Jul 26 '13 at 15:10
You don't even need to be logged in to access /review - that's by-design. – Shog9 Jul 26 '13 at 15:13
Yeah, I just checked that on this site. However, it might be best not to show the link before I can use it. – StephenTG Jul 26 '13 at 15:15
Yeah, good point. – Shog9 Jul 26 '13 at 15:18
On a related note, why was the rep minimum brought up? Just wondering. – Gaelan Jul 26 '13 at 23:10
@Gaelan Because we needed something to give to people when they reach 500 rep (or at least, someone thought we needed something for this). It was semi-arbitrarily decided that the review queue would be a good gift. More information here. – Cody Gray Jul 27 '13 at 4:13
@Cody Thanks for the explanation! – Gaelan Jul 27 '13 at 6:14
@CodyGray I must say I agree with this change. I was reviewing with 200+ and I was going to write to propose an increase on the minimum. Users must be prepared enough to review Q&A in my opinion. Thumbs up for the decision. – Andrea Jul 30 '13 at 9:36

I've edited the privilege page for 125 reputation to remove the mention of Review; it will take a little while to propagate to all sites, but the change should be live everywhere soon.

How long is it likely to take to propagate? – StephenTG Jul 29 '13 at 13:37
And I see that it's now live on SO – StephenTG Jul 30 '13 at 14:07
