I don't recall carrying out any review tasks on The Workplace. Why is this occurring?

  • so far you did one review is Suggested Edits. Review history is public by design, here is yours – gnat Apr 23 '16 at 17:08
  • I looked. It certainly said I have... but I have never had enough rep to access the review queue, so how would that be possible? – Peter David Carter Apr 23 '16 at 17:10

    It was edit suggested to your post. "Any user can review suggested edit on his own posts without having enough privilege. " (How can a user with less than 10 rep can do a review on suggested edits?) – gnat Apr 23 '16 at 17:14

    Hhhhhhhhmmmmmmm. So other users can allocate review tasks to me, as long as it's my own? Because there's a separate badge for just 'editing' a post... – Peter David Carter Apr 23 '16 at 17:15

    in a sense yes. Since you have a right to review suggested edits to your posts one can say that reviewing these is "allocated" to you (along with other reviewers who have sufficient rep to review any edit) – gnat Apr 23 '16 at 17:17

When somebody proposes an edit to your post, you receive a notification. If you click through and approve that edit, that counts as reviewing a suggested edit. So even if you don't have enough reputation to access the review queue, you can end up doing a review under specialized circumstances. The first time you do that, you get the badge.

I believe that Suggested Edits is the only review queue where this sort of thing can currently happen.

  • Ah! I don't seem to see those very often so I just assumed they only occurred under special circumstances. – Peter David Carter Apr 24 '16 at 17:51
