This is different from Review queue false negatives on the new top bar which has been dismissed as status-by-design. When I first logged on this morning the review queue indicator was not lit. After donating my time here for almost 4 years, I was certain that that was false. So I clicked on it to see if any of the queues showed anything and got this:
Clicking on the unindicated Close Votes resulted in the the Close vote candidate shown in the picture above.
Further digging indicated that many of the queues should have triggered some response as seen here after immediately clicking all queues:
I seriously can't believe that this is by design, and if it is, I would respectfully request reconsideration as this is not only useless, but causes harm by projecting the false indication that there are no queues to work.
