On Stack Overflow you can make reviews, but there is a limit. This limit is not static.
Since I began reviewing, rules governing the review limit has changed a lot!

Where can I find the last updated rules on reviews?

  • hm I'd rather would expect these changes to be reflected in Recent feature changes... but as of now, there's nothing about review limit changes

  • I guess that since the review queues are relatively new, things are being tweaked as needed. Nov 15, 2012 at 11:36
  • Things also depend on the current state of the queue in question. On SO, the close and low-quality queues are currently quite large, so the limit on reviews has been bumped up from 20 to 40 for just those queues to help clear them faster. Nov 15, 2012 at 11:46

    @jonsca I'm looking for a more detailed documentation. Not just some partial response. Maybe only devs working on reviews limit can tell us how ALL rules are applied...

  • @Stephan I think that all that needs to be clarified by Shog9 there would be the "40" rule, which I think applies for any queue that has greater than 1000 items in it.

    For better or worse, it's not always easy to come up with "official documentation" for features on SE...

Recent feature changes... have been updated with details reflecting current state of affairs:

  • 2012-10-19: Review actions limits have been changed: after 20 reviews in a given queue, you're done for the day - if you want to continue reviewing, you can switch to a different queue. Limit is doubled for queues with large backlogs.
