On the bar on top, there is a number immediately to the left of the "review" link (at the moment 5); it has pop-up text "5 total posts awaiting review". Yet when I click on the review link (or on the number), all the queues show 0 as the number of questions/posts/answers/edits awaiting review.

Do other people have the same experience, and if so, does anyone know what's going on?

    $\begingroup$ See a similar post, What is with that orange box? on MSE meta. No you are not alone, it appears to be a site wide thing. Here is yet another discuss on the same phenomenon. It has been that way ever since the feature has existed to my recollection. $\endgroup$ – J. W. Perry Dec 6 '14 at 22:36

I've had it for a while (it seems to only come up after you pass a certain rep limit, though, which might be 2K for beta sites) and it's annoying. I see the "5", too, and, for anyone who's too lazy to follow J.W.Perry's links (how dare you!), it represents the total number of posts awaiting review - even posts you've already reviewed but still need reviews from others. The reason it exists is that it's way too expensive to individualize it, given the number of users network-wide who have the necessary rep.

I say "annoying" because it hasn't disappeared for at least a week (if not more), meaning that we need reviewers! Please, guys, if you can, go through the queues.
