How to review late answer?

I saw some people that have the steward badge on late answers. How is it possible?

Always that I want to review late answers there are none. I wait for a short time and refresh it a lot but still there are none. How can I review more late answers?

    $\begingroup$ Indeed "some people" have earned the Steward Badge for Late Answers reviews, but only three people have this (out of $343$ Steward Badges total). The first to get the Steward Badge for Late Answers was Amzoti in Jan. 2014. The next two were in Dec. 2015 and Jan. 2016, almost a two year gap. $\endgroup$

To the best of my knowledge there is nothing special about these reviews; it is just that they are more rare and thus not that often available (plus the scarcity creates additional demand).

As said in a comment if you want to perform those reviews frequently you need to check often, or have a script that does it for you.

For example https://stackapps.com/questions/6517/review-queue-desktop-notification-script could help.

It is not for late answers specifically though.

In addition, at some point there was a flood of such reviews as the criteria were changed. But due to daily limits this did not contribute that much on an individual basis.
