What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

When I had enough rep to review I had no idea how that works. I looked at it and said: Ok, I come back in a few months when I have a clue about it.

I could of course have read a handful of meta posts about it, but I was too lazy for that.

Long story short: I am sure many users would review but have no idea about it or they start reviewing and don't do a good job at it.

Please build a guided tour on how to review.

  • It could be like the site tour we already have.
  • And include some example test reviews to explain common scenarios
  • We could also give a badge for taking the tour

And I'm pretty sure that this idea got converted into a question after this question was posted! :) Really nice thought, +1. – R.J Nov 28 '13 at 11:43
Mockup - feel free to embed into the question if you also agree. :) – Shadow Wizard Nov 28 '13 at 11:46

In the same vein I've noticed they randomly throw in a "test" review after which they say "was to see if you were awake". I passed but I always wondered what would have happened if I had failed... – Machavity Dec 14 '13 at 1:47
