Is there a problem with the edit queues?
I'm raising this on our local Meta first, rather than the main Codidact Meta, because I don't yet have the Edit Posts ability so I can't tell what problems may exist. Hopefully some of you who have this ability will be able to confirm whether there are any bugs / feature requests that should be raised on Codidact Meta.
Do we need a "pending edits in other categories" indicator?
Looking at the Suggested Edits page for one category, it shows empty (correctly) but doesn't mention that there are other categories that have pending edits. Would editors find it useful to have an indication on an empty edit page of which other categories have pending edits?
Without the Edit Posts ability I can't tell if there is already some other indication of outstanding edits that editors can see that would make this suggestion redundant.
For me, I'd need to visit all 4 of the following pages before being sure there were no outstanding edits:
Are the year-old pending edits evidence of a problem?
(One of the old pending edits was resolved shortly after this Meta post appeared, so visibility might be a big part of the problem.)
The pages shown above have outstanding edits in the Sandbox and Meta categories. They claim to have been there for about a year.
Is this due to them not being visible to people who have the Edit Posts ability due to being in a different category, or due to us not having enough people with the Edit Posts ability, or is there some other problem?
What would be the preferred behaviour for pending edits that have not been either approved or rejected for some time? Should they be automatically rejected after some period (presumably less than a year)? Should they be automatically be flagged to moderators/staff?
