Why can't we list out the most close voted questions first in the review queue? While reviewing duplicate questions I noticed that the least close voted questions (1 close vote) and the most close voted questions (4 close votes) get listed in no apparent order.

Why can't we sort the questions, starting from most close voted to least close voted? It would help to close questions sooner.

  • The order is now random, as far as I know, no sort whatsoever. Sep 9, 2015 at 12:51
  • Also any reason you don't use the period character and upper case letters? Sep 9, 2015 at 12:52

  • @CRABOLO my observations in SO close queue (~25K reviews so far) suggest that it works the way described over there
