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). $\endgroup$ – user153918 Apr 29 '15 at 15:58
  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Apr 29 '15 at 16:52
  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – Robert Soupe May 1 '15 at 3:28

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.
