It seems the "First Answers" and "First Questions" tabs were moved into "First Posts".
This is highly inefficient. While I see "first" questions when browsing the chronological order of questions, I'll never be able to get a list of first answers. And late answers don't always include first answers.
Here's why the queue is important: First answers are very likely to be:
- badly formatted
- not an answer
- a really good answer that deserves upvoting
… and not recognized as such because they're only on the front page for a certain time. First questions on the other hand are mostly handled fine by the community, because they're easily accessible by clicking on "Newest" in the Questions section.
So please bring back the first answers tab in
It wouldn't be as bad if I at least had the possibility to filter for questions/answers, but there's no way to do so. The current state is just a randomized (sic!) mix of questions and answers, so you're not even always in the right mindset to review properly. "Oh, here's an answer. And now I'm reviewing a question again!" — you can only find out by reading the "review question/answer" link before clicking it.
By merging those queues, a feature was removed — without providing a viable alternative. This is worse than adding new features that make old ones obsolete. In fact, in the current state, I am just not able to review properly anymore. It's no fun. And I enjoyed doing it for the last 6000 posts.
