I've noticed the Reviewing dashboard now lists stats for what I reviewed:
Upvoted 7 7 Downvoted 18 18 Edited 0 0 Commented 15 15 Voted to Close 54 54 Flagged 0 0 Deleted 0 0 Reviewed 70 70
While that is all neat and the dashboard quite fine, I was wondering why reviewing is treated a separate activity from my usual StackOverflow usage. Basically, everyone is doing these things listed in the stats whenever they cast a vote or raise a flag. I do not see any difference.
My usual mode of operation is just browsing the tags I am interested in, but apparently nothing I do there is counted as review. So I have to change to the review dashboard when I want it to be. That's counter-intuitive to me.
Could someone elaborate why this distinction is maintained?
