I've been using the new
/review on a couple of the smaller sites on the network. In general it works very well, I've been doing a lot more review. But there in may lie a problem, in that it is easy and apparently encouraged to make lots of edits to old questions. Working through
Low Quality Posts tool I find made a few edits, and then returned to the front page to find that the old, in some cases answered questions that I had edited were now sitting at the top of the front page.
This isn't a problem on the trilogy because the volume of new questions will always surpass or at least rival the volume of edits, and because of the different front page style on SO. However, on a small site, it would be easy for a user or a few users eagerly cleaning up the site to wash out new questions on the front page. It's been a problem we've had from time to time even without the current tools.
Am I making something out of nothing, or is this a real problem?
If this is a real problem how should it be addressed?
- Limit the number of posts reviewed per hour (limiting the queue)?
/reviewedits not bump?
- Somehow change the front page algorithm?
