Due (largely) to the massive influx of edits because of https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/128315/the-great-stack-overflow-tag-question-cleanup-of-2012, the suggested edit queue is very very nearly full.

To stop the cleanup grinding to a halt (users won't be able to edit once the queue is full), can those with the approve-edit-privilege pay extra attention to the queue size until we're done?

In other words... can we activate the bat signal?

    Some of the questions those edits are on look like they'd be better of deleted than edited. (Mostly the future ones that are looking for speculation)

    Vote to delete or flag to delete old crap questions, don't edit them.

  • @sixlettervariables And flag for moderator attention if they are too old to gain enough close/delete votes.

    You used the wrong symbol :( i.stack.imgur.com/HWIXw.png May 4, 2012 at 15:23
  • It would be great to make the edit queue visible to everyone with edit privileges at times like this.

  • seems like the 50 vote cap is a bit inconvenient during this time of heightened activity. I just burned though 50 votes and the edit queue was bigger at the end than when I started! May 5, 2012 at 15:08
  • Saw the link in chat, dropped it here. Guessing it's a look at the latest made, not the latest pending @mrl

1 Answer 1


Currently at 154... Most of them by:

  1. vyegorov doing quite a good job of cleaning up questions from what I've seen.
  2. whiteknight who seems to be removing on a number of off-topic closed questions.

According to Waffles answer on Do we need a Bat-Signal on Meta, calling in help when the edit queue is full?, the extended queue is almost full...

One last bump because I'm out of votes and it's still at 144. Over to you all...
