The review queue sizes on the /review page on Stack Apps (and maybe other sites as well) are off. When I visit https://stackapps.com/review/ in a private browser window (or while logged in with a sockpuppet), I see that there is 1 item in the Low Quality Posts review queue and 1 in the Suggested Edits queue. Yet when I or my fellow moderator rene view the page while logged in, they are nowhere to be found.

I know that Low Quality Posts are sometimes invalidated for particular users after viewing them, but Suggested Edits ... There are no skipped items in my review history, and the API can't find them either. The last suggested edit is from May 3rd already, so if this is some kind of caching, it's not configured properly.

  • Maybe it is caching for 6 to 8 weeks?

    There are two review items there, both from 2020. The suggested edit baffles me and the LQP reciew... should be invalidated because the flag that created it was cleared? 1 2

  • @animuson now I'm curious how you found those two review items. Could we have found them for ourselves?

  • They both showed up for me in the queues. shrugs No idea why.

  • FWIW, I see the same review items in the queue (from 2020) as @animuson -- I haven't visited the Stack Apps review pages in a while, in case that is relevant. May 7 at 7:12
  • @animuson thanks - I reviewed both of those before I became a moderator. But it still doesn't explain why rene doesn't...
