On the close votes stats page is a description of the three badges one could earn by reviewing close votes. By the logic of the descriptions, one should get at 1251 reviews, not at 1000.

I agree it can be taken as you say and it could be consfusing, but... You're reading them as a cumulative sequence. As in "review one, then review another 250, then review another 1000". But they're actually completely separate statements, each taken from your current review stats, so you do currently need to review "one item", "250 more" and "1000 more" for each badge. They're completely separate, not cumulative.

So, it's (potentially) confusing... but each is technically correct.

  • Ill keep the bug on it for now until someone descends from the Pantheon to tell us they ain't gonna fix it :)

This is by all of the review pages (correct me if I'm wrong)

So while in First Posts Review, I noticed that it is in fact Correct/Accurate.

I've reviewed 50, so far. and need to review 200 more in order to receive the O Reviewer and 950 more in order to receive the ♦ Steward

The reason that it's different by you Pie, is that you haven't done any close voting yet (almost there though)

IMO: While this method for displaying it, can be a bit confusing. it is not inaccurate in any way.

WELZ's Review Badge

On a side note...

I would suggest it said something more like:

♦ Steward Review 1000 posts, 950 more to go

P.S. Maybe we should migrate it to Meta.SE as this is across all exchanges and probably causes confusion everywhere.
