# Moderation indicator's behavior: Clarification needed

I have an active icon on the top of SE, stating that I have 18 total posts awaiting review. I still have that message active even after I went ahead and reviewed all available to me categories: Close Votes, First Posts, Late Answers, Low Quality Posts, Reopen Votes, Suggested Edits. Why does the counter still indicate that I have posts awaiting review, while it is clearly not the case? Am I missing something?

P.S. I have added bug tag, which I will remove upon confirmation that that behavior is expected.

• No problem. Caching is also often involved so the counter may not be consistently "off" from one moment to the next. – Air Feb 24 '15 at 20:13
• @Air: Hmm... I've just read the thread. Still don't understand why it's designed that way (discounting caching). Too confusing. – Aleksandr Blekh Feb 24 '15 at 20:17
