Our review system is... no longer in beta. Yet I still find review links (mostly here on Meta) that use /review-beta/. If I didn't look at the URL for everything, I probably wouldn't notice that I have to remove the -beta from the URL, but even so it gets annoying after a while.

If any passing community moderator has the time to hack up a script, it would save a lot of people a small annoyance while browsing older posts.

This is an issue network-wide, especially in comments, so it would help if this was done for all "post bodies".

    I don't think anything should be done. If it's in posts, edit it. Otherwise, we can't control ancient contents, especially in comments. Things change. – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Jun 26 '16 at 19:18

Here is a simple SEDE query with all posts on this site containing /review-beta/:

SELECT id AS [Post Link], CreationDate
  FROM posts WHERE body LIKE '%/review-beta/%'
  ORDER BY CreationDate DESC

It returns only 116 hits, which should be doable by a couple of users.

As @nicael mentions, using the regular search function works better. It is down to only 6 hits now, so it seems we're done.

  • Note that just removing -beta from the link is below the 6 character limit. That conveniently enforces users like me to further improve the post... – Glorfindel Jun 26 '16 at 20:21
  • That is convenient... Maybe it was deliberate! – wizzwizz4 Jun 26 '16 at 20:22

    SEDE isn't necessary here, and also it gets more difficult to find the un-edited questions with this query, since it's updated once a week. A better way would be to search for url:"*/review-beta/*" – nicael Jun 27 '16 at 10:34
  • It looks like all of the edits have been suggested. We just need about twenty or so approved. – zondo Jun 27 '16 at 11:14
