Yesterday I saw the following standard question, thus I search using google and find 3 other similar questions in MSE. I choose the (IMO) best one and voted to close the other 3 as duplicates. My votes were cast within 5 mins time.

However, I notice that they have different fate in the close vote review: this one showed up in the review queue and was then closed. The other two 1, 2, if I was corrected, was not found in the close vote queue yet.

I thought my close votes will automatically send the question to the review queue, but I might be wrong. Will the questions go to the review queue at all?

  • $\begingroup$ The Close Review Queue is the biggest, currently having about $180$ posts. I don't know a way to check if a particular Question is in it. Michael Hardy recently mentioned using tags to search the Review Queues, so it might possible. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Sep 27 '17 at 5:30

    $\begingroup$ Heh, I tried filtering on real-analysis and close reason "duplicate", and it pulled up your proposed close-as-duplicate 1. So, it's there, just buried in the pile of items to review. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Sep 27 '17 at 5:37
  • $\begingroup$ The question If $f$ is holder continuous for $\alpha >1$ then $f$ is constant. (the one you marked 2) is still in the review queue. So is the question Hölder- continuous function (1 in your notation) - math.stackexchange.com/review/close/875784. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Sep 27 '17 at 10:23

    $\begingroup$ @hardmath I'll just add that the OP would probably not see the question using filtering via tags - AFAIK you are not offered to review questions you already voted on. If at least one user reviewed the question, it is possible to see it in the review history - which is what I did. (But it might be cumbersome solution - depending on the age maybe you need to go through several pages.) I will add that review is shown on the timeline of the question but only after it is finished. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Sep 27 '17 at 10:28

    $\begingroup$ I am not sure if this is done, but it could make sense that old questions get lower priority than new ones. $\endgroup$ – quid Mod Sep 27 '17 at 10:37
  • $\begingroup$ @quid, yes, that's probably the situation, the older one show up later. $\endgroup$ – user99914 Sep 27 '17 at 13:44
  • $\begingroup$ Both the "other two" duplicates have now been closed as such. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Sep 27 '17 at 15:17
