What is the difference between reviewing and regular activity
I find the current method of collecting review statistics a bit strange.
For example, if I review a question, which happens to be the OP's first question, from the main page and take some action(s) on it, these actions are not added to my review stats. On the other hand, if I first look up the exact same question in the review section and take the actions from there, they are added to my stats.
I would find it more intuitive that actions performed on questions/answers that are in the review section are added to my stats no matter how I got there.
So, I was wondering what the rationale is for the current behavior.
