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

If I vote on a bunch of suggested edits and few other users are reviewing there are two behaviors that waste my time:

  • the orange indicator on the nav bar fails to recognize that there are edits I've already reviewed, and continues to indicate there are edits to review (though it's possible there's no action I can take) -- I have to visit the edits page to determine this!

  • Upon visiting the edits page, I see fully expanded edits for which I must scroll to see that I've already acted.

Thus, two feature requests:

  1. The edit queue indicator should show only the number of edits I have potential action on
  2. Edits in the queue I've acted on should appear as "compressed" (shrunk to just the title, like when I'm the second accepter or rejecter).

I've already requested part 2, with a slight variation. Post your suggestion as an answer there, to keep the discussion in one place? – Gilles Jun 28 '11 at 9:53
Agreed on both parts. I suggested something similar to your part 1, but it only makes sense after using up all the day's votes:… -- here's hoping whoever fixes your part 1 gets mine in the same pass. :) – sarnold Jun 29 '11 at 3:02
It'd also be nice if long posts, when accepted or rejected and moved to the top of list, didn't require me to scroll back up to find the next one in the list. :) And I also want a unicorn! – sarnold Jun 29 '11 at 3:16
