This question concerns me personally, but some parts of it might also be of general interest.
During the last week or so, I had been regularly reviewing first posts and late answers. Yesterday @gung told me that I should only tell users to use the self-study tag, not do it for them (I had been doing both). I acknowledged @gung's concern. (This short conversation took place via comments on my most recent post and has since been deleted.)
However, when I next checked the review queues, I found that I no longer had access to them. The stated reason was "Too many of your reviews were rejected". I have several comments / questions about this:
- After acknowledging @gung's point (which I think is very valid), I did not review any more posts. Thus it felt like I was never even given a chance to "improve my ways".
- Is there a way I can see which of my reviews were rejected and why? (I understand from this post, this post and the overview of moderator tools that some of this information is only available to user with 10k in reputation or more.)
- Do people get banned from the review queues after hitting some threshold or do moderators manually ban them?
- Is there a specific cool-off period after which banned users can access the review queues again or will that be at the discretion of moderators?
Let me add that it is not my intention to criticize the work of our tireless moderators. This site has been very helpful to me on occasion and I try to give back a bit through writing a few answers when I can and to contribute my two cents to the moderation of the site. I am happy to respond to whatever feedback I get and also to stay away from the review queues if I'm doing more harm than good.
