Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

When digging through the Low Quality review list on UX I've often itched for my mod tools; convert to comment and Post Notice are the big ones.

Consider the following answer:

enter image description here

Depending on the situation, this might be outright junk (delete), it might be a comment (convert), or it might just be a plain old no-explaination answer (in need of a post notice). This one happens to be in need of a post notice (never mind the's an example).

I can go to link on the right and perform a mod action through there, but it'd be nice if there was a tiny little mod link like mods see on all posts so I could easily slap a notice on there and hit "looks good".

I understand keeping the UI minimal and focused, but this is a tiny (familiar) link only <1% of users will ever see, and it'll help streamline the review process for mods.

The next build will include a mod menu for moderators who are in the review queue.

This is a nice feature, but why is it redirecting me to the question when I convert an answer to a comment instead of keeping me in review? – wax eagle Aug 23 '12 at 15:36
We'll see if we can make this better, but right now it mirrors the behavior used on an actual question page. – Geoff Dalgas Aug 23 '12 at 15:37
makes sense. Just breaks the workflow right now. – wax eagle Aug 23 '12 at 15:38
@GeoffDalgas Mod link, yay! Small UI snafu on Programmers though, z-index is a bit off, mod popup is unusable (only partially visible). Oh, and we still see low quality answers on locked questions... – Yannis Sep 2 '12 at 14:32
