As much as I’d sometimes like to school editors, I’ve found that it’s not really worthwhile as your places for explaining stuff like this are extremely limited and it’s unlikely that the editor would come back to see the change if they’re not alerted to it. I mean, you can leave a comment to alert them (@name the editor manually), I just don’t tend to do ...

Yup, this was a bug that was introduced to the query yesterday and a fix is rolling out shortly. TL;DR; We've been dealing with a lot of query performance issues since we upgraded to SQL Server 2019 at the end of March. The query to populate the First Post Review Queue has been a nagging problem on some of our sites (mainly Math Stack Exchange). After ...

You have made the maximum of 20 suggested edit reviews today, see the statistics page: That means you can't review any more items until tomorrow, and therefore the queue is not shown in the menu.

You do have some kind of hammer in the form of the 'Improve Edit' and 'Reject and Edit' options. Those let you singlehandedly decide the outcome of the review. There are a couple of reasons for requiring two reviews: it's very easy just to click the Approve button without really paying attention to the edit itself. Some people do this deliberately (the so-...

Having a look at the revision history of the question you reference, it seems an edit was suggested by a user and was later reviewed by a >2k user, who has full edit privileges. The reviewer used the Improve Edit review choice to edit away the VBA tag, which makes sense as that question was not about VBA. The crux of the issue was the reviewer choosing ...

There's a timer which runs every 5 minutes (or perhaps more or less often, depending on the sites) which creates review items when necessary. From my observations (which might not be 100% correct): First Posts: immediately (as soon as the timer runs) It might happen that a user's first post is deleted; at that moment, the user's second post (if any) gets a ...

Posts by unregistered users do appear in the queue. What you've stumbled upon is a post by a deleted user. The user deleted their profile almost immediately after posting the answer. We don't pull posts from deleted users into the queue because, with it being a deleted user, we don't actually know anymore whether it was a first post. It could very well have ...

What difference does it make if he/she accepts/rejects suggested edit or make the same edit himself/herself? I think the difference would be that in the latter the 2,000+ rep editor has their own name on it. In the former the name of the inexperienced editor, who may be very inexperienced, is put on the edit, so it would be good for more than one ...

Your observation is correct, though incomplete ... On ALL sites, and with a few exceptions, no posts are being added to the First Posts review queues. This appears to be the case since yesterday afternoon / early evening (CET). There seems to be a few exceptions, such as on SO, where there are currently only 4 (FOUR !!!) completed reviews. And for one of ...

The stats count from 0:00 UTC, not the last 24 hours; my colleague Eddie has made 9 reviews since then (the red line below indicates 0:00 UTC): To confirm, you can either manually subtract 10 hours from the current UTC timestamp (which is shown in the achievements dialog): or, more conveniently, as so often with dates/timestamps on Stack Exchange, hover ...
