Is there a reason for so many late answers popping up in the review queue? I think 2 days ago, there might have been 20. Now there are 2.5k. What happened?

1 Answer 1


The "Late Answer" reputation bar was raised from 10 to 50. This is to fight all the comments-as-answers that still appear and escape the current review queue.

More details are available over on MSE.

  • Ouch. I will take your word for it, That thread is painful. I guess this happened just recently. Commented Oct 3, 2015 at 7:57
