Since a recent change in notifications, I see more than I should:
I see no reason to see 134 posts are awaiting review, when there is literally nothing I can do about them. I think it is a bug, because notification is meant as something that will make me act. When I know I usually can't, obviously I will start to ignore it.
If it's not a bug, please remove bug tag and explain how it is supposed to be useful, or how can I switch to only seeing notifications about things I can act on.
Note that apaprently there are no flags for me, neither. I see only stats, migrated, close, delete, there, as if there was no flags waiting:
If you expect us to click on it every few minutes
just to see personalized numbers next to queues, why don't you simply query for personalized numbers every few minutes and cache them for us? It should cost you similar, in database usage, and will save us a lot of clicking and frustration.
If all this number means is "there might be reviews, or not" or "for sure there are none"
it would be simpler just to hide "review" link in the second case. We don't need two links with the same function next to each other, thank you, one is enough, and meaningless numbers are only irritating.
