Over on Meta Stack Exchange, I announced an experiment that would:

  • Turn on the review queue indicator whenever there's a task available in any queue.
  • All queues with at least one task will be marked with a red dot. There are no grey dots:

    Inbox Zero indicator

This will mean you'll be notified of outstanding tasks you can't clear. We are aware of a problem that people will be notified of queues that they don't have the privilege to access. That's next on the list to fix. The goal is to be more aggressive with the indicator to see if we can clear tasks more quickly. Please let us know if we've gone too far.

And in general, we're interested in any feedback to this change: positive, negative or noncommittal.

  • As opposed to having grey indicators, and the indicators not showing when a user has cleared all possible queues available to them?

  • @Joachim: I'm not employed by the company any more. It might be worth asking this question on Meta Stack Exchange. Commented Jul 23, 2020 at 19:54
