I was messing around with site settings, something I often do to relax in the evenings, when I happened to glance at the /review queues. I recoiled in shock, unwilling to believe my eyes - the usually empty Low Quality queue suddenly sported over Twenty-One Thousand new items!

What terrible catastrophe would cause such a sudden backlog?

We are slowly finding ways to classify posts that need extra review so you may see this queue go up on occasion. Some of these posts may be ok and some of these may need a bit more attention.

We really appreciate any extra people who can help clear the backlog and help keep our quality high.

  • Note, 21k is rather small compared to the massive cleanup effort from 2011. Well, perhaps not rather small, but definitely not huge.
