Basically, title says it all: 25 reviewed late answers on a Wednesday morning (German time) - and all of them audits (on the bright side, nearly all of of them passed).

Audits-only started a bit before midnight, last "real".

Bug or feature?

Edit: still stuck, so the last real above marks the absolute time it started.

Edit2 and bump:

bug seems to be back again, audits-only since last "real" review - this is rather suboptimal as the late-answers are accumulating (causing yet another review stampede whenever it will be resolved) - anybody listening?


review queue stuck again, last real - wondering why this seems to be happening to the late answers only? The answers are fed into to first posts queue (if they are first as well as late)

  • Is this a 10k only? I wasn't able to see anything related to audits. Mar 20, 2013 at 9:07
  • @AbZy hmm ... don't know: I see the type of review by opening the history and then click on a link of the second-last column

  • When I click that link, I see only my reviews.

  • @Ren - thanks, then it really seems to be a >10k (or >20k, don't remember when I started seeing them)

  • No problem. I've managed 7 now just opening the queue to see if there was anything in it even without the review page saying so. They were all audits though. Going to stop as I think the queue is indeed bugged.

I was optimizing the SQL yesterday to lessen the server pain on these reviews and make them run faster...however when you put 2 Ids in the query backwards it doesn't work very well at all.

A fix will be built out in the next few minutes to get this queue going again.

    "...it doesn't work very well at all." But they did run faster, right? Mar 21, 2013 at 12:10

    @SulfurizedDemonbobby - 10.2mil reads down to a little over 2k and ~8,600ms of CPU down to ~120ms, so yep Mar 21, 2013 at 12:12
