As per this answer.

I have <2k rep, so I can only review first posts & late answers, and I'm getting bored. Can our lovely mods tweak the SQL statement to add another few thousand posts to the late answer review queue? Then we can sit back and wait for someone to complain about how the queue jumped by ~10k overnight. Or, is it possible that we've cleared out the backlog? Methinks not.

    Wait, I really got a downvote for expressing enthusiasm for helping to clean the site? Wow. Commented Nov 2, 2012 at 17:18

    @MichaelMrozek I know what voting means on Meta. I just find it hard to believe that this is such a disagreeable request. Commented Nov 2, 2012 at 17:24

    That was me, which I removed... I actually misinterpreted the request as badge hunting in the review queue, but seeing you are not doing that much reviewing (in terms of volume), I realized your interest appears to be genuine. Commented Nov 2, 2012 at 17:24

    The First Posts queue on Stack Overflow was never anywhere near 50k.. am I missing something here?

    @Emmett not 50K and not First Posts, but about a week ago, Late Answers (also available for <2K users) were at something about 5K. Ahh that was a good hunting... ~50 flags a day, all helpful. Much more fun than boring, mind-squeezing close votes queue :)

As of our latest build, the Late Answers queue will grow slowly and gradually—in theory you'll hardly notice—until eventually (~4 months from now) it includes every late answer ever.
