On tex.sx, the review tabs that I (>5k user) can see are usually empty. It'd be useful if there was a summary tab in the /review section so that we could see at one glance that there's nothing to do.

For the cases in which there are questions to be reviewed listed on the summary tab, the reason why they need reviewing would have to be indicated, obviously.

I would assume other smaller stackexchange pages are in a similar situation; and although stackoverflow certainly isn't lacking material to review, this tab could still be useful for users who'd like some variety in their reviewing.

  • Empty review tabs? On a site just shy of 14K questions? What's your secret, TEXopedians? – yannis Jan 17 '12 at 16:29
  • @ZaphodBeeblebrox: Hard to say. I like to think the world of TeX and friends is a fairly specialized field, mostly academic, and users tend to express themselves in a pretty structured way (and LaTeX encourages them to do so). This makes the posts pretty good on average. On top, most of our higher-rep users (i.e. those with the required privileges) are quite actively pursuing moderation chores. The stackexchange concept seems perfect for this field. – doncherry Jan 17 '12 at 16:38
  • Actually, it seems I was exaggerating slightly: Currently, there are four posts to be reviewed :) – doncherry Jan 17 '12 at 16:40
  • Well, the Programmers.SE review page is empty right now. Let's see how many seconds that will last. – yannis Jan 17 '12 at 16:43
  • By default it shows posts for review within the current day only. Are you looking across all available data? – Yuck Jan 17 '12 at 16:44
  • @Yuck If you are asking me, I don't even dare... Just the daily posts are enough, thank you. – yannis Jan 17 '12 at 16:45
  • @Yuck: Yes, that's how I found the four posts. – doncherry Jan 17 '12 at 16:45
