Posts I've already reviewed show up in the review section again
I see the posts I review more than once

Today, while using the "Close Votes" task in the new review tasks on Stack Overflow, I was presented with a (book recommendation) question that I could not vote to close. It turns out, I had previously voted to close that question while browsing questions on the site (not from /review), and the close vote has since expired.

I believe this new close vote queue already avoids showing me questions where I have an active close vote; could the existence of expired close votes be added to that filter (since I still cannot really act on the post's need for closure anymore)?

I've marked this as a bug, rather than a feature request, since it seems like this is just an oversight.

  • How come the possible duplicate link got removed?? Commented Aug 9, 2012 at 12:34
  • @ShaWizDowArd kiamlaluno realized his close vote was a mistake (because it's not a duplicate of that question), so he removed the auto-comment. Commented Aug 9, 2012 at 12:36
  • Hmm.. don't think this should be possible as the close vote is still there. Commented Aug 9, 2012 at 12:37
  • @ShaWizDowArd You can still see the close vote count, though. And you can navigate through the close vote menu to see what the target question was. Commented Aug 9, 2012 at 12:41
  • True, but it's still confusing. Asked to fix this now.. :) Commented Aug 9, 2012 at 12:44

  • @razlebe That's about the old review system, and it's a different problem. That's seeing the same post in /review more than once, this is seeing a post in /review for the first time, but I can't act on it because I voted to close it in the past outside of /review. Make sense? Commented Aug 15, 2012 at 13:28
  • Also, that was marked as fixed in January, and Emmett just fixed this a few days ago o_O Commented Aug 15, 2012 at 13:29
  • @jadarnel27 Yes, you're right. Apologies.

  • @razlebe No worries. You're the third person to mistakenly vote-to-close this question, so I'm starting to think I was unclear somehow =) Commented Aug 15, 2012 at 14:02

This is fixed.

Now, if you have ever cast a close or delete vote, you shouldn't see that post in the close vote review queue.
