Recently new help boxes for Review Queues were displayed to users. E.g.:

help box

The box above is about a specific queue. There is also a main box for queues in general like shown here.

After dismissing, such boxes will never appear again for a user.
Is there a way to display them again? In particular I need that to verify translations on ruSO.

    I don't have much time now to further dig but here on MSE I can switch the toggle for the suggested-edit review queue back to false by executing this in the console $.post('/users/toggle-flag/8388608/false', {fkey:StackExchange.options.user.fkey, userid:158100 }) Notice that 158100 is my userid, replace that with your own. The unknown bit is 8388608. I'm not sure if that is per user / per site, so I need a couple of others to keep the dev console open and observe what is being posted on that /users/toggle-flag endpoint.

    Does this answer your question? New onboarding for review queues: "This information can be revisited at any time by clicking “Learn more” under the page header." - The learn more links show the exact same modals as were originally shown. Commented Apr 23, 2021 at 8:29
  • @Nick right, that's probably easier than fiddling with the JavaScript. It doesn't work for the general information though, which is also what αλεχολυτ asked about.

  • @Glorfindel, good spot, I only tested it for a few queues, didn't think to do it for general info. Seems more like a defect to me that it doesn't and that clicking learn more on the "all queues" page should show it Commented Apr 23, 2021 at 9:19

The easiest way, which as @Nick noted is in the announcement itself, is to use the 'Learn more' link in the queue:

enter image description here

That doesn't work for the general review information, though. As @rene discovered, it's possible to reset the popups through fiddling a bit with the site's JavaScript. In the snippet below, replace [USER_ID] with your user ID on that site, and [FLAG_ID] with the ID of the flag, which can be found in the following table:

Review Queue Flag ID Bit
General information 32768 15
First Posts 131072 17
Late Answers 262144 18
Close Votes 524288 19
Reopen Votes 1048576 20
Triage 2097152 21
Help & Improvement 4194304 22
Suggested Edits 8388608 23
Low Quality Posts 16777216 24

You can also sum flag IDs to reset multiple flags at once; 33554431 will reset all popups (but this include lower bits as well; see below what those flags are for; for just the review queues, the target number is 33456128).

  {fkey:StackExchange.options.user.fkey, userid:[USER_ID] })

Execute the JavaScript in your browser console and you should see the popup(s) again.

@rene did an excellent job (again) for finding all flags; just execute StackOverflow.Models.UserFlags in your browser console and it'll show the equivalent of this table:

    Okay, if you flip all flags to false, do you still have a diamond on Chess.se?

    That would be interesting. Perhaps you could try flipping all flags to true and check if you'd become one?

    There is probably a thin-line between a honest experiment and abuse. Maybe wait for a dev to confirm how much damage we can do here ...

    I've found them all: StackOverflow.Models.UserFlags in the console is the Enum that is used.

  • Source is in dev.sstatic.net/Js/full.en.js search for // StackOverflow.Models.UserFlags but that part is generated based on the header found a few lines above that model definition
