When I am doing first-post reviews, I notice that I treat questions and answers differently.

For first-post questions I think am quite relaxed. No spam, reasonably clear, good references and so on then it is an approved.

While for first-post answers, I skip most posts of them because they are outside my area of expertise, and I think a more knowledgable reviewer should have a look.

This made me wonder if there should be two queues, one for the first question and another for the first answer.

Lets discuss, or is the way I review just wrong?

    $\begingroup$ What time of day do you usually review first posts? Every time I've gone to the review queue it's empty at the level I can review (there always seem to be close votes but it's above my score). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I don't see anything "wrong" with how you differentiate first post reviews of question vs. answer. However the first-post review may occasion making constructive comments, so that new users get off on a good footing. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I see what you mean, Alonzo. I can review first posts, late answers, low quality posts and suggested edits. A few minutes ago I went through three suggested edits, and that felt like a lot. Though right now there are 30 close votes, but I can't review those either. $\endgroup$ May 1, 2015 at 3:28
  • $\begingroup$ I am closing this question, as recent updates to the review queues have implemented the feature discussed here. It does not seem that there is further discussion to be had (though a new meta post on the updates would not be inappropriate if there are problems which need to be discussed). $\endgroup$

In a way, this already exists. If someone prefers to review only questions, or only answers in First Posts queue, they can filter accordingly:


The setting is "sticky", meaning the site will remember your preference next time you go into the queue.


Now there are different review queue for answers and questions namely First Questions and First Answers. Here is the link for first questions and here is the link for first answers.

Here is the link informing about the announcement.
