Would it be useful to have an on-post link to the review queue when the post still has to be reviewed? It could look like this (notice the button in the bottom right):

enter image description here

Of course, a tiny link would do to (perhaps next to add comment or the share/edit/flag links).

What problem would this solve?

Sometimes, I review posts where someone else has edited out the useless text already, or commented with a request for code, or explained why it is off topic. The review task actually has been done by that other person, and I think he would deserve the review count instead of me. With a button, you'd immediately notice when a post needs reviewing, and you can decide for yourself whether you want that or not.

This also helps reviewing posts earlier, which can be useful on sites with a small reviewing community (I'm not sure if there are any), and of course is extra service to the (new) user.

The point of review is to get eyeballs on stuff that might otherwise be overlooked. Questions that might need to be close, low-quality stuff that might need to be deleted, etc.

That doesn't preclude doing useful stuff outside of review, but if the system is asking for more reviewers then there's a reasonable chance it actually needs more eyeballs on something, attention from folks who wouldn't necessarily be looking at the post anyway.

This would kinda ruin that.
