The evident purpose of this proposal is to make it easier to close bad questions quickly. To the extent that it would promote that goal without producing undesirable side effects, I have no objection to it—and I can't imagine that any other EL&U participant would object to it either. The problem is that EL&U's built-in options for voting to close a ...

I can't deny I've been remiss in not going through the review queue so often lately. But when I do tackle the "Closevote" queue, I invariably hit my daily limit (20 VTC), because the queue is so long. And that really irritates me, because it means I can't VTC against current questions, as they arise. Perhaps I should post my thoughts as a "Feature Request" ...

I'm a frequent close voter, and I think it's worth a try. There's a double-layered effect where misdirected questions often get answers that are of poor quality, which further increases the queue length.

I agree with Andrew Leech, the system is broken not because on January 14, 2020, there are 148 questions in the review queue, which is a TINY drop in the ocean compared ...

Although implementing this proposal carries obvious risks, it is worth trying because it promises to reduce the number of questions that are closed after being answered. The purpose of closing seems to be to prevent the questions that do not belong to this site from being answered on it. When the concept of closing was built into the framework of the Stack ...

I think it is broke, and this would be worth at least trialling. Currently there are over 160 questions in the review queue. I confess I don't use the queue much; I simply don't have the time and since my vote is a binding vote and designed for exception-handling, I would far rather that the community policed itself. If there aren't sufficient members who ...
