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 reviewing, I was very pleasantly surprised to receive questions that match my most active tags. I suppose it's "by design" and it's a great thing.

But I also receive a lot of questions that really do not match my knowledge (I am a C++/computer vision guy and I am asked to review Json, php, ruby, etc). Some are easy to interpret - they are plain crap, but others need some sort of knowledge in the area to make a clear judgement. Especially the "Suggest improvement" part is compromised.

So, I suggest to limit more aggressively the questions whose tags do not match the reviewer's expertise.

I see other were concerned about the topic, on both pro and contra arguments

Please allow tag filtering on the new review pages


'Random' sort order on /review pages

But I think that a good formula would be a "biased random order" towards the implicit user preferences. It should limit the "Not sure" clicks my a measurable amount.


To make a clear distinction between the related questions/requests that handle manual sort by tags, I am talking about automatic filtering based on reviewer's most active tags.
