I have recently started reviewing "low-quality" posts, one thing which I see repeatedly are posts which have only just been posted (perhaps 1-5 minutes previously).

It seems harsh to delete them so soon, and much more useful to comment (suggesting the user elaborate), especially if they are a new-user... and many users push an answer and then edit it immediately.

Should I "Looks good" new answers (if there is a glimmer of home they could/or will be edited shortly)? Currently I err on the side of "not sure" (leaving it for the next guy to review...), but I feel I should be more decisive. Is there a policy or any guidelines, what are your thoughts?

If you're not sure what you should do, perhaps you should click the Not Sure button.

No as really what is wanted is a delay and see the question again in a couple of days - in otherwords the view of the question changes overtime - and as I note in my question it should not be closed immediately – Mark Sep 25 '12 at 14:02

I would say to just evaluate them based on the quality of the answer. You can probably get a good indication of whether a further edit will be made (if it is somewhat low quality). If you think you could improve the answer by an edit, make a suggestion. If you think that the answer is beyond help, then use the voting buttons as you see appropriate.

"beyond help" is a rather low bar :) certainly if I can improve it myself I will, but if I don't understand it (and it could be correct) should I pass it on (click "not sure")? – hayd Sep 25 '12 at 10:23
@haydoni Well, I am mod, and only a user a few months, but if I am not sure, I am more than happy to hit that Not Sure button. I only choose an action if I am totally certain of the action. – Fluffeh Sep 25 '12 at 10:26
