This question already has an answer here:
Though correlation doesn't imply causation I think there's a link between me hitting 10k rep and seeing this review count in the top bar:
It makes no sense at all and is always more than 200. This even happens when I reviewed 20 of almost each queue and certainly had nothing to review. The count doesn't add up even if I subtract 200 from the number.
What does the number exactly mean? If it's broken I'm gonna ad-block it because it harms my attention for no reason.
