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.

You should not post an answer because you have to same problem, unless you have some research which at least partially solves the problem. See the Help Center answer How do I write a good answer?: Have the same problem? Still no answer to the question, and you have the same problem? Help us find a solution by researching the problem, then contribute the ...

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 ...

This is not a full answer to the question, as I don't feel I have anything helpful to say about any aspect of the situation except possibly the content of the post. Firstly, thanks for posting that useful question. Secondly, it does seem that the question would benefit slightly from a clarification, as Braiam's comments on the question rightly (well, he's ...

In general, it's not surprising that people who were active on the site years ago are getting the passive reputation increases observed. We get reputation not when posting something, but when someone upvotes it. A post can be upvoted any time after it is posted (unless it's locked or deleted), and posts that get a lot of views continue to get upvotes over ...

It may take 1-2 minutes to calculate the results and to be available on OpaVote (formerly, OpenSTV) and 5-10 for Community Managers to post. For example, 2019 election ended on May 21 '19 at 20:00, the results were available at 20:01 on OpaSTV and Jon posted at 20:07. Related posts: When will we know the results of the recent elections for moderators? There'...

Sportsmanship is also listed as a moderation badge in the list of badges, perhaps because voting up is considered 'moderation' on Stack Exchange, and an important one (it's even mentioned in the tour). I guess it's equally valid to regard it as an answer badge. Why was it chosen? It turns out that it was the initiative of a community (Mathematics Stack ...

I have always felt that Sportsmanship is the single most important badge for elections. Posting 100 answers isn't much, really. Not if you're an active user of an active site like this one. All of our current moderators have somewhere between twice that number and 20 times that number. I, an ex-mod, have ~10x that number myself. However, the importance of ...

Please see Why are questions no longer being accepted from my account? from the Stack Overflow help center (or the equivalent page of any other SE network site) for more general information about question bans, how they work and what you can do to avoid them. TL;DR: Post well received questions and also edit and improve your old questions to make them meet ...

You just missed it this year, here are the results. The only thing I can do to help you here is to point you to the SO email settings and advise you to check the box for research. This way you should get an email for the next one.

Resolved for now by temporarily undeleting the answer to unfollow it, but the core issue remains the currently still open bug reported on Meta SE, as commented above by Kulfy: This is a bug already reported on Meta Stack Exchange. The bug exist for questions as well as answers. See How do I unfollow a deleted question?

Stack Overflow's Developer survey is generally conducted every year in the month of January-February and results are announced somewhere between April and May. As Mark Kirby stated, you just missed it this year. Whenever a new is available, you'll see survey's announcement in the yellow box on the right side under "The Overflow Blog". Currently, ...

Unwanted edits to my question in ask Ubuntu You have to ask yourself: why unwanted? Reading the question, it is clear that neither of you should have done what you did in the edit war. The simple answer should be a one-liner: Flag for moderator intervention. Case closed. Both the question body as well as the comments you posted might however be subject ...
