If you feel that your suggested edit was wrongly rejected, it is usually a good idea to submit it again. Unfortunately, as you know, the suggested edit review queue gives reviewers very little scope for providing feedback to edit suggesters (and even the paltry feedback that can be given in cases where edits are rejected is unlikely to be seen since no ...

The system automatically selected that answer for use as a review audit because it was deleted after being flagged as spam or rude or abusive. I know this because 10k users can view deleted posts, but posts that get one or more "red flags" before being deleted have their bodies hidden until one clicks through to the revision history: In this case, the flag ...

The new review icon (which only appears when you have 500 reputation or more) looks like this: or in context (ooh look a tooltip!) it's been suggested that it looks kinda like a stapler... This icon may be getting changed soon, but it's going to be in the same place and it's not going to have any text saying "review" :( When you click the button, you get ...

There is no in-built mechanism to remove that icon from your page. If you don't want to participate in reviews just ignore the icon.

There is nothing special about newly posted answers to questions about releases that have reached end of life (or end of standard support). The goal of the site is to build a library of answers to questions about Ubuntu. A question that describes a problem on a particular release is not necessarily exclusive to that release. An answer that reports it was ...

An out of the box solution, to complement the other (better) answers: consider posting a 100 point bounty on a question or answer that deserves it; that will bring your reputation below 500, which is the level required for accessing the review queues. That will also hide the icon from the navigation bar.

"no changes needed" means that you have examined the item and have decided that it is okay in its current state. If you select "no changes needed" without actually examining the question, then "failed" is an appropriate result. There is also the "skip" option for when you don't want to suggest changes yet don't want to say it's okay. (If you really want ...

It's a weakness in the audit system. One of many. Don't worry about it, these audits are only there to catch people who are clicking blindly to get badges. Failing one every now and then is not an issue, just shake your head at the stupidity of all automated systems and move on to the next review item.

30 minutes ago, this feature request was tagged status-completed: I would like to raise the bar for late answers to enter the Late Answers Review Queue to 50 rep, which is the threshold after which users gain the ability to comment. Here are some answers that were posted by users with between 10 to 50 rep (yes, there's a little selection bias to ...

So to do this (I just found) is actually really easy, and I'm glad I didn't post the question :) Up at the top is a button that says rendered output, click that and it automagically changes to the rendered html. My pronouns are He / Him

Open the reviews page in Incognito Mode, so you're logged out, and you'll see it. The review count won't reflect anything you submitted.

I'll never vote to re-open a question just to close it again with a different reason. That wastes the time of potentially 10 or more reviewers, to what benefit? Unless I can band together four others to re-open and close quickly. This, IMO, makes sense only when going from (any close reason) → duplicate, since none of the other reasons contribute anything to ...

There are two options. To leave the question closed, since it is still not clear. To reopen the question and add the OP's answer as a community wiki answer. I vote for the second option, because this answer may have some value for someone who meets the same problem. It is unlikely though.

The community-ads system does not know what the content of the ad is. The ads are (mostly) manually created images by users of the Stack Exchange network, which are then voted on by other users. See Community Promotion Ads - 2016 for this year's ad selection process (vote accordingly if you don't want this ad to be shown). The only connection between ...

This is done: Note that only tags with at least 20 questions currently in review will show an indicator on the tag page itself. Enjoy...

Were you looking at the recently reviewed? Review audit passed 54 mins ago: Adaephon reviewed this 54 mins ago: Reviewed It was an audit post. They're commonly already nuked.

Those comments are only generated in the Low Quality Posts review queue, and automatically (you can choose from a list of half a dozen standard comments, or choose to leave no comment at all). You get access to that queue at 2,000 reputation. I agree that these comments can be useful from the First Posts (or Late Answers) queue as well; that's why I use the ...

That particular comment is automatically generated by the system through the Low Quality Posts review queue. I'm not sure if there is a list of these (so you can copy them) but you can see all options here: Nowadays, the comments have some links in them, but the text hasn't changed significantly over the years. Other interesting links: Repository of ...

I normally click the back button and access the problem post directly (it will be linked), the perform the necessary actions on the question outside the review queue. Also, don't worry about a mistake - it isn't binding, it needs (3?) more wrong votes to keep it open. (And I've just flagged etc. that one!) But, as Seth says - do go back! My pronouns are ...

The question, and the answer content: Try using a live distro to edit or remove your /root/.bashrc. The answer is correct, but it's far from being a good answer. The question already knows it's a broken /root/.bashrc file so the answer might as well just say: Fix it! The OP figured that out and restored the file from /etc/skel/ in the end. They ...

There are two ways to see the review queues: through the drop-down menu at the top right of pages the "all queues" page, which can be accessed by clicking "all queues" in the drop-down menu For everyone: the drop-down menu shows only the queues you have access to the "all queues" page shows all queues and greys out the queues you don't have access to ...

The threshold, being the queue currently bigger than 1K, "has been increased" to 40 already; this is clear just by looking at the daily late answers review stats, however: How come my vote cap for "First Posts" is lower than others?; Also, it will shrink: since when I asked about why the queue increased yesterday, it shrunk by ~800 questions ...

Once you pass the 10k reputation mark and unlock the moderator tools privilege, the number will stop showing only the suggested edits, but instead show the - almost - total number of all available possible reviews. For more details, you can check the following question/answers: What does the number next to the review link in the top bar actually mean?

As one goal of our edit reviews is to educate people to make better edits I tend to "accept and improve" only rather small omissions. When someone suggests an edit where only the easy (spottable or doable) part has been done I rather use "reject and improve".

It's an audit. It's actually based on a question that was deleted a while ago so no, you can't do anything to it. Just mark it for closure (because it was a bad question with no detail and no updates) and you'd have passed.

You can go back through your list of reviews (either on your profile or in review and find the post. Then you can flag it.
