Q: Reopen Review Queue seems breaking down

Have No Display NameCurrently I am reviewing on SO, and click Reopen Review queue but got below error message, while all others review queues working fine. I tried 5-6 times, but the same message.

@SmokeDetector fp-
Can Smokey take the age of posts into account? If a year old post contains a "phone number"... it's a false positive.

@xkcdBot that seems like fun
After posting my feature request Search questions by relative time of creation I found that the existing created:1d is good enough for filtering questions to answer. intags:mine answers:0 score:0.. closed:0 created:1d returns something of manageable volume.
It's nice to have a fixed set of questions that can be considered at leisure, instead of trying to drink from the firehose.
@Dronehinge I've been told that was a misclick.

Q: How can I manipulate the DOM without a library like jQuery?

bjb568I am used to using jQuery for manipulating the DOM, for example: var mything = $("#mything"); mything.on("click", function() { mything.addClass("red"); mything.html("I have sinned."); }); But now I want to do the same things with Vanilla JavaScript. Is this possible? How can I do it? ...

Hmph, this seems to be pretty controversial.
Because nobody would ever ask a question like that. People don't sit down and think "I feel like manipulating DOM today. How do I do that?"

> A calorie is a unit of heat used to measure the energy your body uses and the energy it receives from food.
It's a unit of energy, not heat…
Sounds like what you'd see in a terrible health/nutrition book
if I remember correctly is the amount of energy required to evaporate a cm3 of water
There are two different units with that name, just to keep things interesting.
One kg of water for food calorie (kcal), one gram of water for normal calorie.
> A calorie is 1000 calories.
yeah, we should just use joules
1:48 AM
^^ That's more accurate
@Braiam To heat by 1 degree. Evaporation is a whole another story.

Nicolas Clément (1779–1842) was a French physicist and chemist. Also known as Nicolas Clément-Desormes, he was born in Dijon. He was a colleague of Charles Desormes, with whom he conducted the Clément-Desormes experiment. The two chemists are also credited with determining an accurate value of gamma in the gas law (see Equation of state) that relates the heat capacity of air when expanded at constant pressure vs. constant temperature. They also conducted research on iodine and played a role in determining that it was an element. This research eventually led others to invent the process of photography...
@AndrewT. bot is shut down again
^^ Article confirms he used it as kcal, not really as heat
Not sure why they describe it as heat tho if they also say he described kcal.
Go research it while I do teh healthz!
@bjb568 calories comes from "calor" which means heat
What is it, hace calor? I think that means it's hot.

That idea was... REALLY unpopular internally. Something about kicking while down.
But it's not shown to the author of the post.
And I'm not even proposing suggesting to downvote.

If that's what makes it unpopular, no.
what fun is it without downvotes?
@Shog9 ok this is helpful
yeah, see? Fine print isn't always pointless and annoying.
The satisfaction of the job well done: the post was classified correctly, it will be hidden from many users, and will be dispatched shortly.

@Braiam I'm going to start an overhaul of the review history page soon. It was something we wanted to do as part of the quality project, when we introduced the helper queue - it just turned out to be complex enough to become its own larger project.
People need to be able to see "That thing you spent time editing? Yeah, look how well it went on to do a month later", and it's also very useful to see how your review actions pair with the ultimate fate of the post.
I'd like to make this just become another part of your profile, although it kinda is now, it's not very easy to discover (or, much less, show off)
@TimPost What about declined flags? They need some care too. Currently they just get buried in the flag log unnoticed until you reach the warning threshold, then the system warns you.
@bummi gone
@Unihedron Yeah, what I'm thinking of doing is small bar graphs that shows something of a percentage. It's not just flags, how are your close votes ultimately falling? How are your triage actions ultimately falling? Because it's good to know that only, say, 10% of what you call unsalvageable actually ends up closed unanswered.
@TimPost So, a fancy inventory page? :)
Feb 3 at 13:23, by Unihedro
We also still need an inventory page - how much rep, flags, and cvs left for the day, etc.
6:38 AM
@Unihedron Ssssssssssssorda. When I start, I'm hoping to just grab a designer. I don't want to build something that compels people to use all their things:
Because knowing you can pull the trigger 95 more times isn't always a proper motivator in and of itself.
@TimPost True.
Knowing you have ammo left and stuff in your known tags, on the other hand? That's a pretty good thing.
So instead of an inventory page, it's more like a dashboard?
@Unihedron Yep. It's a place that shows you how you're doing by your actions being in line with eventual consensus, highlights things that really stand out from what you did in the helper queue, and gives you stuff to do based on how much 'ammo' you have left and targets you'd be likely to hit needing reviewed.
Good luck!
6:50 AM
Well, that's what I want, anyway. Any time you mix tags into it, you get kinda .. expensive .. pretty fast. But that's the big picture of what I'm going to try to push.
Expensive is bad.

The whole idea would be to stop users with <2k from entering the queue by having some automated process that does all their minor edits instead.
