I was wondering if the VTC backlog was only on Stack Overflow, or if it existed on other Stack Exchange sites. If it did exist on other sites, that might mean that the system for all Stack Exchange sites may need to be changed.

    There have been many discussions on this.. but as far as I know, the VTC queue is only backlogged on SO. – Josh Crozier Dec 10 '13 at 1:28
  • Shog9 has pretty much confirm that the bulk of the SO VTC queue is the long tail of old questions, which suggests it is exclusive to SO. – psubsee2003 Dec 10 '13 at 1:30
  • I would guess that as I don't see major posts about it, but wasn't sure. – hichris123 Dec 10 '13 at 1:31

    I just checked Super User, and it's at 300 something. I was more curious for the trilogy and major sites, as beta's don't usually get as much off-topic stuff. – hichris123 Dec 10 '13 at 1:34
  • There are a few other sites with non-zero Close Vote queues, but I wouldn't necessarily call them backlogged the same way SO is backlogged. – Adam Lear Dec 10 '13 at 1:39

    On most sites the toilet needs at most a little baking soda and vinegar. On SO, the entire septic tank has made itself into a backyard pool. – random Dec 10 '13 at 1:41

    @random At least the kids aren't playing in it. – hichris123 Dec 10 '13 at 1:42

  • Clearly, there's a backlog on all those sites, just not as bad. – Cole Johnson Dec 10 '13 at 4:08

    Even the largest of the backlogs on Ubuntu and SU are trivial in comparison though. – Charles Dec 10 '13 at 4:26
