When browsing questions for a given tag, a review indicator has recently started showing up that links to the open review tasks for that tag. For example, this is what I see when viewing Python questions:

enter image description here

The number 187 in the screenshot above would link to

https://stackoverflow.com/review/close?filter-tags=python

However, clicking on that often opens review tasks that do not have the tag in question. For example, it opened the following on successive attempts:

https://stackoverflow.com/review/close/4853626 (c)

https://stackoverflow.com/review/close/4853008 (java)

It seems that the filters are broken.

A sample screenshot (note the mention of the filter on the review page):

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

  • The ElasticSearch one is an audit... not sure why the other would show up though. – Charles May 20 '14 at 7:07

    I can confirm this. It is happening on a lot of occasions here too, last time I was trying to filter for close reason "opinion-based" and a question showed up that asked for "unclear what you're asking" close (and had no other close votes and was not an audit). I have a screenshot if necessary – PlasmaHH May 20 '14 at 15:05
  • I've been experiencing some glitches on the filters too. Like setting a tag not taking effect at once. Or not having any tag set and being filtered by tag. – brasofilo May 22 '14 at 7:40

The issue was that the front-end didn't correctly handle the query string filter-* parameter. After the initial review it started loading items filtered with the user's default filter settings. Fix rolled out in build rev 2014.5.22.1619.

  • Does it apply to all sites, or only to SO? – ShaWiz May 22 '14 at 9:35

    @ShadowWizard it applies to all sites.. Since recently the filtered review queue links are shown on superuser too, plus the filter-tag and filter-closereasons query string parameters work on all sites - regardless if you see a link or not. They are just made more prominent on SO and SU. – m0sa May 22 '14 at 9:40
  • All seems to be working well now. Long live the filters! – devnull May 22 '14 at 16:47
  • Looks like it's broken again. – devnull May 28 '14 at 9:35
  • @devnull that was an audit – m0sa May 28 '14 at 17:16
  • @m0sa Oh, sorry. Was too quick to conclude that it's broken. – devnull May 28 '14 at 17:39

I was about to ask the same question - the answer is "Yes, the filter by tag is broken."

I've just filtered by Android tag. The first was about Android, and the following ones in order were:

So... Broken...
