The count flag at the top bar depicting the number of suggested edits pending approval seems to have stuck. The Suggested Edits review queue is empty already.

I tried both Firefox and Chromium browser, even the private browsing, but the issue persists.

  1. Pending suggested edits count flag

  2. Relevant review queue is empty

  3. Clicking on the flag shows that the queue is empty.

I found the related posts Minor suggested-edits notification bug and Number of suggested edits seems to include own edits but the questioner in both the questions noted that he made tag wiki edits which I didn't do.

I only reviewed two suggested edits (both from anonymous users) so I'm not running empty when it comes to reviewing the suggested edits.

Is this a bug?

  • I've seen this many times on SO. I'll be having 15 post in the queue but when I click the icon the queue will be empty. ;) – Lucky Sep 23 '15 at 13:01
  • Did you report the issue or search about it on meta sites? May be you know about a post that can help me understand the cause here. – Firelord Sep 23 '15 at 13:03
  • No. Sometimes It got cleared after a page refresh. – Lucky Sep 23 '15 at 13:06
  • I thought this was due to it counting "skipped" review tasks in the notification (until others review them), despite them being filtered out on the review pages. I think it's just caching rather than a bug, regardless. – Matthew Read Sep 23 '15 at 22:30

  • @m0sa I'm not familiar with what caching means here. May I suggest you briefly tell what could have lead to that issue? – Firelord Sep 24 '15 at 7:48
  • there is some heavy caching on the back end for that value. that's why the label says "~2 pending suggested edits" -> "approximately two pending suggested edits" – m0sa Sep 24 '15 at 7:51

    Sorry, I didn't see the second part of your comment. Here's related posts that might be helpful Why is review queue showing a number when it is empty? & Does the review queue page show only reviews requiring your action? Does it differ, and when does it? – Lucky Sep 25 '15 at 7:49
  • @Lucky, thanks. :) Although m0sa already pointed out the cause, those links you posted are quite helpful. – Firelord Sep 25 '15 at 7:52
