Tonight I seem to be getting phantom suggested edits on the main site. I perpetually have a notification that there are edits for me to review but every time I click on it, there is nothing to review. What's going on? Is this affecting anyone else?

    $\begingroup$ My guess is that someone else has gotten to the suggested edit before you have. You can check this list to see if someone has accepted or rejected a suggested edit recently. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I suspect it's another manifestation of this, which I think is the same as this. $\endgroup$ Oct 13 '14 at 14:58
  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn it definitely wasn't someone getting to it before me. The edit notification was perpetually on for over an hour but there was never any edit for me to review. I would click two or three times in a minute but nothing was there. $\endgroup$ Oct 13 '14 at 20:44
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer That definitely seems to be it. Guess it was just a weird bug but it's cleared up now. $\endgroup$ Oct 13 '14 at 20:45
  • $\begingroup$ I do not know whether this can be your case, but this answer claims that the number of reviews is not shown for each user. A user might have already reviewed some tasks (or simply clicked skip) and they will still see the box with the number of review tasks will be shown. $\endgroup$ Oct 15 '14 at 7:01
