This idea isn't new, but so far I have only found it in answers or in more complex feature requests. So I want to propose this small (and hence hopefully doable) change to the site:

There should be a page which shows the number of questions in the close vote queue by tag.

This proposal is inspired by this post in the current burn down activities: From that post, I was made aware of a tag that needs more reviewers, and where I actually have the knowledge to do this. So the purpose of the proposed page would be to attract reviewers for tags which need them most urgently.

What is probably important for the implementation is that these number could be cached. They neither need to consider any overlap between tags, nor do they need to reflect how many questions are actually reviewable by the current user.

The information could for example be presented as shown in this UI mock-up, but really just a flat list would already be helpful.

Sounds like a good idea, here is what I have in mind: (show it after applying a tag filter)

  • This is not the feature that I'm proposing! You seem to want the feature requested here, which has been deemed to data-intensive to be implemented. My proposal is more simple: I just want the total number of question per tag to be shown, regardless of whether you have already reviewed them or not.

  • @oberlies right, but what you have in mind, where will we have such list? Commented Mar 6, 2014 at 15:21
  • The numbers could be shown in different places, but as explained in the question, there should at least be a list of tags with the numbers somewhere, so that I can get inspiration on which other tags I could also start reviewing.
