I wonder if I understand how to review new posts. Several items that I "skipped" because I wasn't sure have been cleared. Is that the way it's supposed to work? My interpretation of the label was that I was skipping that post and leaving it in the queue for the next person.

  • I'm almost certain that they just go back in the review queue (and are hidden for you only), but I haven't found any source stating this when I looked just now. Was the question you Skipped this one or this one that I just found in the New Posts queue? Commented Jan 24, 2015 at 17:50
  • Yes. I think they were.

The skipped question goes back into the review queue for other users. It's just hidden from your own queue. (Source: @Mayo and I just tested this out.)

Skipping when you're not sure what to do is encouraged by the community.
