I've noticed that I very frequently see the red dot appear on the navbar link to review queues, but when I click on it there are no queues that need any attention. This seems to happen almost every day, sometimes multiple times per day.

Is this a weird timing issue where somebody else is consistently reviewing an item before I'm able to get to it, or is it some weird bug in Stack Exchange?

  • I noticed this happening when I submit a suggested edit to a tag wiki. I wonder if that's the cause? – Nic May 13 '18 at 1:30

If there are outstanding things to approve that you don't yet have the reputation to do (such as a tag wiki edit), it'll still give you the red dot, unfortunately.

  • That's it then. I'm seeing the red dot as a result of my own activity on the site. – Nic May 13 '18 at 21:45
