I think users who have earned the gold badge in a queue should be allowed to review twice as many posts.

Right now, I see

and

on Stack Overflow. I have the gold badge in each of these queues, and I'm willing to do more reviews. I think users with the gold badge should be allowed to do twice as many reviews.

I agree with this answer, which points out that

If you have earned a gold badge for a queue, you can get more reviews in it. Because if you review after you got it, you review for the quality of the site, not for badges.

    I think everyone should have higher limits on the reviews, then everyone is happy. – Unihedron Nov 10 '14 at 16:29

    @Unihedron Robo-reviewers are a huge issue. If you got higher review limits from day 1, when you're trying to earn the badges, you're more likely to robo-review. – Mooseman Nov 10 '14 at 16:33

    I don't think reputation is a good metric for deciding who to give more revs to. – bjb568 Nov 10 '14 at 16:36

    I think this should be based on relevant stats. Since review tasks taken isn't a viable scale, we could work with net helpful flag stats, much like the maximum flag per day system is in place. – Unihedron Nov 10 '14 at 16:38

  • @bjb568 Absolutely not. The audit system is rather fallible. – Mooseman Nov 10 '14 at 16:40
  • Well, what else is there? Flags aren't really related. Number of anything will increase robos… – bjb568 Nov 10 '14 at 16:41

Note: this answer doesn't repeat what the question said, because it was posted when another revision was present.

I agree with what bjb568 says:

I don't think reputation is a good metric for deciding who to give more revs to.

You said that most 10k users have the gold badges. Any stats for that? And even if most 10k users have them, there certainly are 10k users around who don't have them and if they get more reviews, they might start robo-reviewing.

What might be better? If you have earned a gold badge for a queue, you can get more reviews in it. Because if you review after you got it, you review for the quality of the site, not for badges.
