The Review Queue is not always the first place I visit when I hit a Stack Exchange site. I usually dive into the questions to see if there's something interesting that I can answer or something else obvious to be acted upon.

When I do get into Review and start looking through the First Posts queue, I'm presented with a question on which I've already voted, commented on, and edited. The I'm Done button is, unfortunately not lit.

I don't want to make further (read: unnecessary) edits, so my only choice is to click Not Sure.

It would be better if the I'm Done was live if I've already taken some action on the post.

Alternatively, just don't show a New Post in the queue if I've already taken some action on it.

(This was alluded to in the comments on this answer, but I thought I'd make it a formal feature request.)

    Yes please. The old review system was smart enough to realize that I had already acted on the post and increase my counter accordingly. That seems a pretty good feature to keep.

    Right now I'm going through week-old posts that I've already acted on, and it's getting on my nerves that I can't click I'm done.

    The first part of this request is done. If you've already taken action on the post, "I'm Done" should be enabled already. We're working on implementing the second part: if you've already taken action on the post, you won't see it in the queue unless you specifically link to it.

  • Nice, but ATM it doesn't take flagged posts into account. Is this by design?

  • @Flow It's supposed to take flags into consideration. Do you know what type of flag it is, or which post?

  • Oh I am sorry, I just read that only the first part was implemented. I guess the answer had the "I'm Done" button activated right from the start.

As of now, if you have already taken some sort of action on a post, you shouldn't randomly come across it in the First Posts queue. However, if you directly navigate to it (via reloading the page, back/forward, or permalink), it should still be reviewable, with the I'm Done button enabled and clickable by default.
