I am not able to review any post although I have enough reputation (more than 1400) on my Stack Overflow account.

However, the review queues always show zero contents.

Up until now I've only reviewed one item. Is something broken?

  • Ah okay, so the queues you have access to are simply empty. – Bart Nov 12 '13 at 11:24
  • Could you post a screenshot of what you see when you access the review page? – Damien Pirsy Nov 12 '13 at 11:36

    The "First Posts" and "Late Answers" queues (which are all you can review before 2000 Rep) are actually empty most of the time, as there are a lot of potential reviewers (anyone with at least 500 Rep). I at least see 0 almost all the time. – Ral Zarek Nov 12 '13 at 11:41

    @Duncan - After reopening just vote to close it as a duplicate of First post and late answer review queues always empty? – Himanshu Jansari Nov 12 '13 at 12:42
  • @hims056 Ha, didn't realise there was a duplicate. Oh well... – Duncan Jones Nov 12 '13 at 13:41
  • No issue for me @Duncan – Vinodh Nov 12 '13 at 13:53

At your current reputation, you can only see the "Late Answers" and "First Posts" (I believe). These queues are often empty and, even when they're not, a large group of users constantly patrols the queues and will snatch up the opportunity to review.

Once your reputation increases, you'll gain access to some queues that typically have a handful of items in them at any one point. Once you reach 3k, you can drown in all the close reviews you can handle...
