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 – gnat Nov 15 '12 at 11:27
  • I guess that since the review queues are relatively new, things are being tweaked as needed. – Martijn Pieters Nov 15 '12 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. – Martijn Pieters Nov 15 '12 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 Nov 15 '12 at 12:17
  • @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. – jonsca Nov 15 '12 at 12:21

    For better or worse, it's not always easy to come up with "official documentation" for features on SE... – jonsca Nov 15 '12 at 12:22

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.
