This has happened twice now - I get the "red dot" on the "Review Queues" icon, but when I click on it the queues that are available to me (my rep is about 750) are all empty, though there are some greyed-out queues that have as many as 200 items. Am I getting notified by mistake?

Edit: To be clear, this isn't any big problem for me, but as the event queues are new to me (I guess I passed some reputation cut-off) I've been spending a few moments trying to figure out what/if I'm missing.

I believe it is not literally by mistake, but it will likely be changed. See Please don't red alert me for queues I've handled for not the exact same matter but something related (it's about users that at the moment cannot review), where it says that several improvements are planned.

    $\begingroup$ Seeing that it's a known issue and that I'm not just misunderstanding the queue system is what I wanted. Thanks. $\endgroup$
