I just received the reviewer badge and it seems that the First Questions and Late Answers review pages have changed. For example; the first questions review page used to show at the bottom of the page:


Since receiving the badge it shows the following at the bottom of the page:


Funny enough the First Answers review page still shows the old style 'bottom of page'.

I'm not sure if this is by design as I couldn't find any documentation for this change. If it is by design then why doesn't the First Answers page have the same style? If it is not by design then there is some kind of bug, where either the First Answers page needs to be given the new style or both the First Questions and Late Answers should be given the old style.

    I think it depends on the number of posts there are to show. With the second example there are "only" 5*15 = 75 posts at most. – ChrisF Sep 2 '12 at 14:47
  • It seems you are right. The bottom of the page depends on how many posts there are. I can't recall having seen the new style before and assumed it be related to the reviewers badge. While this still might be true, it could also just have been a coincidence that I visited the pages while the counts for new First Questions where reset for this day, resulting in the new style to show. – Sicco Sep 2 '12 at 15:03

I assure you it has nothing to do with the badge. When there are 90 items or less to review for the task, random mode automatically gets disabled and the panel begins showing you the page numbers. You can also disable random mode manually, in which case you'd have the following message below that:

Showing posts in order (enable random ordering)
