This morning I was greeted with this:
It's (I think) the third day in a row where the number of close review tasks I can do exceeds my daily limit of 20... at 9AM. MSE has grown a lot since the beginning, and I read today that there were 600 new questions every day. Obviously not all of them are bad, but even if 10% (and I think I'm very generous here) don't meet the quality standards, that's 60 questions a day, or 300 close votes needed to be cast. And since not all questions are reviewed the day they are asked, the problem only compounds itself.
I don't directly have access to the review stats, but as far as I can see it's always the same small number of people who are effectively closing the questions. The review limit of 20 doesn't make a lot of sense, especially since the number of close votes per day was bumped to 50 for users with enough rep. I know there are workarounds (the bookmarklet "Skip and open in a new tab" is very useful), but there shouldn't be a need for a workaround. What can be done about this?
