For questions about the review queues: the section of the site where users with sufficient reputation can review others' posts, e.g. for possible closure or deletion, and suggested edits.

The review queues can be found at https://scifi.stackexchange.com/review (or https://scifi.meta.stackexchange.com/review for the meta site). There are six kinds of review queue at Science Fiction and Fantasy Stack Exchange:

  • Close Votes - for deciding whether or not a question should be closed. A question enters this queue when someone has voted to close it or flagged it for closure, and leaves when it's either been closed or received at least three "Leave Open" votes. Available at 3000 reputation.

  • First Posts - for providing feedback on new users' first posts on the site. A question or answer enters this queue when its poster has no previous posts on the site, and leaves after a single review. Available at 500 reputation.

  • Late Answers - similar to the First Posts queue, but only for new answers to old questions. Again, an answer leaves this queue after a single review. Available at 500 reputation.

  • Low Quality Posts - for deciding whether or not an answer (or rarely a question) should be deleted. A post enters this queue when someone has flagged it as "very low quality" or "not an answer", or when it is automatically flagged as low-quality; it leaves when it's either deleted or received enough "Looks OK" votes. Available at 2000 reputation.

  • Reopen Votes - for deciding whether or not a closed question should be reopened. A closed question enters this queue when someone casts a reopen vote on it or when it's edited sufficiently soon after being closed, and leaves when it's either been reopened or received at least three "Leave Closed" votes. Available at 3000 reputation.

  • Suggested Edits - for approving or rejecting edits proposed by low-rep users to other users' posts. All suggested edits pass through this queue, and need at most two reviews to be approved or rejected. Available at 2000 reputation.

Of these queues, only Close Votes, Reopen Votes, and Suggested Edits are available on the meta site.
