Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This is more of a StackExchange network request than one for SO itself, but here goes:

Generally speaking the bit of logic that picks questions for the email newsletter does a good job of picking questions that are interesting to people who subscribe to the newsletter.

Since these questions are sent to all the subscribers, I like to make sure that they're of high quality and give people an impression that they're getting the best of the best. When I receive the newsletter I typically open each one, do some edits, clean things up, flag, and other typical things I normally do in the /review queue.

I think it would be great if there was a bit of a lead time for people who unlocked the /review privileges to either get the newsletter a little bit earlier or perhaps have those questions pop up in the /review queue so that they can have some human eyeballs give them a once over and improve them if need be.

Cool idea, if it's practical. – Andrew Barber Jun 28 '12 at 6:53
    
could've sworn there was a dupe regarding this, can't find now :\ – Sathya Jun 28 '12 at 8:46

This already exists, sort of:

http://blog.stackoverflow.com/2012/02/stack-exchanges-greatest-hits/

What you might want is a way to filter that by time so you can curate the recent "greatest hits" that are likely to go out in the newsletter.

Basically what I am trying to say here is, you should be gardening your prize roses all the time, not just before the big flower show. :)

Agreed on the latter - its just that every once in awhile, one really low quality question slips through the cracks. Rather embarrassing. – James Sep 9 '12 at 12:08
    
Yeah a "New" tab there or whatever would be enough I think. – Jorge Castro Sep 13 '12 at 14:22
