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

In the last few weeks, the 'review' button at the top of has become very slow. I can count to 20 in some cases (but not always).

In a perhaps related phenomenon, I believe that test questions in the queue often trigger a level of extreme slowness all their very own. If I click on a queue, or 'next' after a review, and the periods sit there throbbing for a good long time, chances are that what will show up will be a review audit.

I've noticed this only on SO. Chrome (latest) Windows 8.1. – Anonymous Penguin Apr 13 '14 at 16:24
Same on Mathematics. By the time an edit audit loads, I already know what it is, and am hovering over reject button with some impatience. – How About a Nice Big Cup of Apr 13 '14 at 17:56
Happens here for SO, too. On Win 8.1 with a 150MB upstream and downstream internet connection as well as on my iPad at home with a total different connection. Since approx. 2-3 weeks. – Uwe Keim Apr 21 '14 at 12:23

After the next build, review performance been improved with some much needed caching. Some days you just can't have enough cache!

Geoff, caching appears broken today:… – gnat May 8 '14 at 8:28
@gnat is correct, accessing took over two minutes for the second time today so was going to report. – Shadow Wizard May 8 '14 at 11:03
@ShadowWizard It seems to be working now. Currently i´m getting a lightning fast response. – Jehof May 8 '14 at 11:48
It's still unstable and audits are still reported to take long time to load. – Shadow Wizard May 22 '14 at 11:45
