I am participating in the review queue for (nearly) the first time, on Stack Overflow. I see that in the upper right hand corner, we can view our badge progress by hovering over the bar, as described here. This progress includes progress toward Copy Editor and Electorate.

However, this is confusing for me because in the review queue (for Triage) I don't see the ability to vote on posts, or to edit them. I can only comment and vote ("Looks OK", "Requires Editing", etc.).

What am I missing?

It's all explained here. The idea of triage is:

The primary goal of Triage is to quickly sort potentially-problematic posts into categories that can be routed elsewhere...

Voting is possible in some conditions, like if you're the third reviewer to choose [Looks Good].

Read the post for the full mechanism of the triage queue.

  • Ok so voting is sometimes possible, but what about editing?
