bugstatus-planned The posting states, We are also showing a popover to users who earned access to review queues in the past, but have never done a review or haven't reviewed in the last 30 days. I am seeing the popover for queues where I have reviewed within the past two days on the very same site (specifically Stack Overflow). Here's a screen shot of a &...

bug status-planned The popup shows even when I have used the review queues a lot on other SE sites. I am aware of how the queues work. I don't want to be diverted to looking at how they have changed since last time I looked a few minutes ago. (Hey maybe they have, why would they alert me if they haven't?)

bugstatus-planned There's a grammatical error in Most posts require x votes to close it posts is plural, so the last word must be them.

bugstatus-declined Daily review limit You can review 20 tasks a day per queue. I see that on sites where I'm a ♦ moderator and I consequently don't have a daily review limit.

feature-requeststatus-planned I really like the idea of notifying new users who have just gained the review privilege. That's cool! And I can understand that you might also want to show it to old hands as well if they haven't reviewed for a while. However, many of us are active on many sites, so now I need to dismiss a popup telling me that I can learn about ...

bugstatus-planned The Suggested Edits modal looks like: I don't think we are able to delete posts from the suggested edits queue (unless that's a new feature you haven't told us about)... Looks like it made its way there by mistake.

First of all, this proposal is extremely difficult to understand, since it's not very clear exactly what you are requesting. Closing a question doesn't stop it from being seen on the main page, by the way. It seems like you want it so that when OP edits the question, it's immediately reopened until people reclose it. This is an extremely bad idea for various ...

Your current suggestions aren't any friendlier to the people that get them, because they leave out the important instructions. All your suggestions will do is end up with someone who, at best, just gives up because they don't know how to ask a new question. In a worst-case scenario though, this user ends up being so frustrated they start lashing out at other ...

discussionstatus-planned It's probably too late for this, but if the goals included: a new onboarding experience for the review queues and to provide upfront instruction and guidance for successful reviewing. (my emphasis) ... then I would suggest that veteran reviewers be excluded from the target audience. Consider excluding people who have one or more ...

status-planned The reopen vote queue popup talks about 'recommend closure flags' that will be declined. As far as I know, recommend closure flags are marked helpful when a post is closed, and you can't flag a post that's already closed to recommend more closure. Shouldn't this line be in the close vote popup instead, saying such flags will be declined if ...

bugstatus-planned The Low Quality Posts queue has questions as well as answers (except on Stack Overflow); the guidance popup seems to be solely directed at answers. Questions cannot be deleted from that queue (unless you are a ♦ moderator); they can be voted or flagged for closure.

discussion proposal status-planned Screenshot for reference; suggestions/issues listed below: "Welcome to Review queues" I would suggest that "the" be added here... articles do wonders for readability: "Welcome to the Review queues". The feature toast already does it this way: Help improve question-and-answer quality! ...

Inconsistent capitalization: vs. Unsure why "Review" is capitalized.

I would like to reiterate something I brought up in Improving Review Queues - Design overview I: Onboarding and updating workflows regarding the workflow of the Reopen Votes queue. The main problem with it currently is that any1 edit on a closed question sends it to the reopen queue. This means that "meaningless"2 grammatical/formatting corrections ...

status-planned I have a problem with the Late Answers modal: First of all, it should probably state that you need to choose I'm Done when you're done, but we can let that slide as it's pretty obvious. I'm more worried that it doesn't say anything about skipping and makes it look like those are the two options: action on the post, or looks ok. That worries ...

One of the central tenets of our moderation policy is that people should be given a chance to show if they've changed their behaviors and we do that in various ways. We allow one question every six months from a question banned user. Suspensions generally max out at a year without staff issuing a network-wide suspension. Chat suspensions generally max out ...

feature-request Can we please get the same onboarding for the 10k-tools, seeing as they are under the same dropdown menu in the UI.

bugwording In the modal for the close vote queue it says: "Most posts require 5 votes to close it." On SO, the 5 is replaced with a 3, which is how it should be. However why emphasize that there are exceptions, binding moderator votes or gold badge duplicate closures, here in this modal. These are exceptions to the general rule that a post requires ...

feature-request The dialog for the reopen queue has the following text: posts whose bodies have been edited within 70 days of closure (the "on hold" period) However, the "on hold" period is no longer a thing since the rollout of the new post notices. This text seems to have been taken from an old revision of the general review queue FAQ ...

Whew - got it figured out! What an adventure in browser compatibility research. The issue here was the input event. It's supported across all modern browsers, but on older Microsoft Edge versions, it's not supported for dropdowns or radio buttons. We were attempting to enable the submit button on an input event. I've updated that to enable submit on both an ...

Tags in the review queue tag filter are (unlike the regular site search) always joined through OR; you don't need to add it, and neither is it possible to review only tasks within the intersection of two (or more) tags. You also don't need to use square brackets; just python javascript c++ will suffice.

I can tell you what's going on here: you've reviewed enough items in those queues to trigger the 'please come back tomorrow' message. The template for that message is Thank you for reviewing ${maximum daily reviews} ${queue name} today; come back in {period} to continue reviewing. ${maximum daily reviews} is calculated on-the-fly, i.e. it depends on the ...

feature-request Can the order that the queues appear in on the review page and in the review drop down be made consistent? Right now the review queue page is ordered by size of queue, while the drop down has a static order resulting in them not having the same order:

feature-request Since the modals link to the "How do I use the [X] queue" page, can we change the text: To "Read more about the [X] queue in our help center", since we want to know about how the queue works and not the suggested edits themselves?

discussion wording The current text in the VLQ queue doesn't seem accurate at all with prevalent guidelines, and the fact that the post might be "an answer to an old question" is more appropriate to "Late answers" queue than VLQ.

feature-request The sentence on the daily review limit blanketly states: You can review 20 tasks a day per queue. However, this isn't always correct, even on non-Stack Overflow sites. The review queue size limit can increase to 40 for a particular queue if its size is larger than a threshold (150 on Stack Overflow, 1,000 on other sites). Additionally, one ...

Meta Stack Exchange doesn't have First Posts and Late Answers review queues, and hence the first paragraph is correct: Once you have achieved 2,000 reputation, you have access to the first set of Review queues The real problem is that the same help page is used network-wide; the privilege levels are inserted on-the-fly. So it looks correct on e.g. Stack ...

feature-request The welcome message for the low-quality queue says: This queue contains posts that the system or other users have flagged as potentially problematic. You can choose Looks OK, Edit, or Delete. How to work through this queue: Consider leaving a comment when appropriate. Delete new answers to old questions that are redundant and add no ...

Create separate First posts - questions and First posts - answers queues I think it's a good idea to emphasize different actions for different post types, but are separate queues really necessary? Right now, the Low Quality Posts queue has different actions depending on the post type as well. (I'm ignoring the fact that the use of the Low Quality Posts ...

One big problem I have with First Posts queue is that it has both questions and answers. This often leads to confusion when users see a question posted as an answer. They edit the post instead of flagging it as NAA. Separating the queue is definitely a good idea, but the question is whether we need a specialized queue like this. Could we not have "Low-...
