My last review was more than 25 minutes ago. I keep checking my review queue, which appears empty. Yet, I have three review alerts!

It appears, I cannot add pictures from the iPad.

Edit: my meta review queue appears empty too.

  • I marked them as duplicates, which they undoubtedly are, yet I find the answer here much clearer. What could we do? @Em1

  • I don't think there's an agreement what's best if question B is a duplicate of A but answer to B is better than to A. You can flag your question for moderator attention and see if they merge the questions. Or you can add a reference from my question to yours. Either in comments, or I'm even fine if you edit the question and add a block "This question has also a great answer [LINK HERE]".

The review counter in the topbar shows the total number of pending review tasks. You don't necessarily see them when opening the review page, because:

  1. You may have already reviewed them, or
  2. you may be ineligible to review them (e.g., it's a review of your own post, or a post you flagged, etc.)

Simply put, it's the number of posts that need attention, but not necessarily your attention.

This discrepancy was discussed in Notification for reviews shows way too many.

  • Thank you. I am trying to flag this as duplicate, but the search does not return that question, just as it did not before posting!
