I am not debating the validity of your individual flags. The validity of each flag can be debated for a lot of flags. I think this question is based on a lack of information and feedback due to your low reputation. Why are the Helpful flags not resulting in a closure? Maybe these have a vote or two and are still in limbo, but I can't see this progress. ...

The close queue is dynamic. If all the pending task are over 1,000 the amount of alloted reviews for each user rise to 40. Once the queue is below 1,000 the queue returns to the original 20. Reference: https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/223917/213575

As can be seen in your screenshot I'm the second user with most reviews completed and will tell, from my perspective, you what the problem is: Y U FLAGGING CRAPPY QUESTIONS AS DUPLICATED!?!?!? Reviewing duplicates use a massive amount of time. The good reviewer have to read two questions, and answers to verify that both questions are actual duplicates. This ...

Your points here ignore the simple fact that not all questions about EOL releases are automatically off-topic so any system that attempts to look at tags needs to be intelligent enough to work out what's actually being asked. That —err— automatically rules out anything fully-automated. The review queue idea isn't necessarily bad. I doubt SE would want to ...

The reasons for close voting gives you at least some information on why. I can understand you'd like to have more information, however: Reviewing is quite a burden to the site. We already have a continuously growing stack of items in queue, until someone decides to do, or calls for, a clean up. I really don't think it is realistic to ask people to write a ...

Leave open starts a 3 strikes system. 3 leave open votes will remove the question from the queue. If you notice lots of close votes on a question you do not think should be closed, it is a very good idea to leave a comment addressing the close voters with your reasoning. Close adds another close vote to the question. As usual 5 votes are required to close a ...

Since it's possible to close a question as a duplicate of multiple other questions and thus provide a solution to each one of the multiple problems apparent in it*, closing a question about a complex package management issue as a duplicate sometimes requires a collaborative effort beyond clicking along with the previous reviewer. Let's say someone with ...

I used to like it when we had the regulators room open. That way, if I didn't really want to deal with the most questionable 25%-50 of the close-vote questions - and someone spent serious time weeding through all the chaff - they could drop in over there and linkbomb it then ping some 3k+ users.

It is so long because not enough users go there every day and cast enough close (or "leave open") votes to overcome the questions newly added to the queue. Although it is stagnated now, there was some times when the Close Queue grew to more than 1000 items until Luis Alvarado cleaned it up. As I have access to the Moderation Tools I always go there and try ...
