New first-post review queue: “Upvoted comment” should be a valid action

While reviewing following user activity are currently considered to be action on a post:

  • Upvoted
  • Downvoted
  • Edited
  • Commented
  • Voted to Close
  • Flagged
  • Deleted
  • Reviewed

But, there is one more activity that a reviewer can perform is upvote a comment, as there might be a comment already present giving the same message that the current reviewer has.

This should be considered, as I have found myself in such condition several times.

Any thoughts?

    Comments are not that important that upvoting one should be considered an action while reviewing. As well, those stats may or may not become obsolete when the rest of the old review tasks gets replaced by the new system.

    Closing this as a duplicate, even though this is in relation to the old review system and the one I linked to is in relation to the new one, since for all intents and purposes the old system is now dead - none of these actions are tracked anymore outside of the new queues.

I agree with @mtk. Often when reviewing a post, I see that it has been commented previously by a different reviewer, and the comment addresses the required issue. At this point, my contribution is to upvote that comment to reinforce the point it's making, but I can't upvote comments in the review page, so I have to click the link to get to the actual thread and then upvote the comment. This is tedious, and gets in the way of reviewing the posts effectively.
