I usually don't pay much attention as to how the Review Queue behaves, but today I found the following situation:

This question has 2 Close Votes:

However, while I expect the question to be found in my Review Queue, it is empty:

Mathematica graphics

So ... when does the closing votes "enter" the Review Queue?

  • That one is already deleted (by the owner). Maybe that's the reason?

Review is only updated every 5 minutes. In addition, the oldest vote must be at least 15 minutes old before it is even eligible for review: a lot of problems resolve themselves, so putting them up for review would just be a waste of time.

In this case, the author himself deleted the question before it was ever added to review.

  • That should be it! Thanks! Apr 30, 2014 at 19:42
  • Another occasional problem is old questions on which one has already voted to close. May 13, 2014 at 14:58
