I reviewed 27 First Posts today: enter image description here

Then I got a message thanking me for reviewing 20 posts: enter image description here

And the Stats page indicates I've only reviewed 20 items: enter image description here

What's going on here?

  • I am pretty sure this belongs on meta.stackexchange.com instead of here. Any limits would be something SE can answer. My guess is a few of those questions were eventually deleted though. – Ramhound Aug 21 '15 at 17:51
  • Sorry...changed the question a bit. But aren't limits set per SE site, not for the network as a whole? – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 21 '15 at 17:51
  • The limits might be. If you were able to review past the limit then it is a bug and thus should be reported as such. – Ramhound Aug 21 '15 at 17:52
  • OK. If someone can confirm this shouldn't have been possible I'll request a migration of the question. – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 21 '15 at 17:53

    The stats page shows you as having only reviewed 20 items. superuser.com/review/first-posts/stats – Mokubai Aug 21 '15 at 17:54
  • @Ramhound I confirmed all but 2 of my reviewed items are something other than deleted. (The two items shown in black text in my screenshot appear to have been deleted). That least 25 items. – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 21 '15 at 17:56
  • @Mokubai So do you think this is a bug? – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 21 '15 at 17:58
  • I can see 20 in the last 16 hours, and then more 18 hours ago. I suspect that you were reviewing either side of the daily cut-off and 5 of those were yesterday. I can't remember exactly when the review period starts. – Mokubai Aug 21 '15 at 18:01
  • @Mokubai That has to be it. I must have reviewed those just a hair after the cutoff time. – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 21 '15 at 18:10

I can see 20 in the last 16 hours, and then more 18 hours ago. I suspect that you were reviewing either side of the daily cut-off and 5 of those were yesterday.

I can't remember exactly when the review period starts, but I suspect it is at 00:00 GMT and is not a rolling "day" and instead your limit is reset daily.

  • I know for a fact you're correct that the cut off is 0:00 GMT. – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 21 '15 at 18:10

    Yep, that's definitely it, your reviews that were 18 hours ago show as "2015-08-20 23:43:46Z" when you hover your mouse over them, and the ones 16 hours ago show as "2015-08-21 01:48:27Z" and the Z would be Zulu time. So the reset is almost certainly daily at 00:00:00 Zulu / GMT. – Mokubai Aug 21 '15 at 18:18
  • I didn't know you could get the exact time by hovering! That should be the answer! Had I known that I wouldn't have needed to post. :p – I say Reinstate Monica Aug 21 '15 at 18:55
  • @Twisty: That works anywhere you see a time field expressed imprecisely (e.g., "11 mins ago", "15 hours ago", "yesterday", etc.), such as when a question or answer was posted or edited (including in the revision history), when a comment was posted, or even when a user joined or was last active ("Member for 2 years", "Last seen 3 hours ago" in the user profile).  In fact, all events that are recorded in the revision history (including close, reopen, lock, migrate, etc.) – Scott Aug 21 '15 at 22:52
