The rep required to view the First Posts review queue was bumped from 125 rep to 500 rep on July 26th. You had enough rep to view it under the old rules but do not any longer.

We already discussed that in chat a few days ago. While having no definite answer, our "guessed conclusions" are: it's the number of overall items in queue probably for reasons of cost, the ones irrelevant to the user are not filtered out No idea what should have led to the current situation.

The thing with "too minor" edits is a good point.

Minor edits should come with added value, like rephrasing the sentences or titles so that they are clearer or easier to understand, adding formatting, or editing the tags where applicable.
