So I've been watching the numbers for the low quality posts in the review system and I've been noticing a distinct trend.

They seem to be going down. (As of writing this the count is at 43.2K)

I was just wondering on the the numbers before and if the trend was going up? Personally I think the system is great and encourages me to look more at posts but I think the system is only a success if the numbers show it is.

So what do the statistics say?

EDIT: just to be specific I was mostly intrigued by this number(below)

I don't know about total low-quality posts, but I can tell you that, before the new review system was put into place, the suggested edits queue was getting full on a regular basis (which requires 200 unreviewed entries, I believe).

Since the new review system was put into place, this queue is regularly staying in the low double-digits or less. As I write this, there are currently three posts in the suggested edits queue.

  • On Stack Overflow. The suggested edits queue is essentially irrelevant on Meta. – user102937 Aug 10 '12 at 3:08

    Unfortunately I get the feeling the quality of suggested edit review has not gone up. (<-- read: gone down I think, but I can't prove it) – Bart Aug 10 '12 at 3:25

    @Bart: Unfortunately, I think you're right. – user102937 Aug 10 '12 at 3:34
  • I'm not sure what the original number was but I remember the queue being 46K a day or so ago. – James Khoury Aug 10 '12 at 6:18
