This question already has an answer here:
What is required from me in reviewing a post? There is a similar question on Stack Overflow Meta.
I clicked on review and see many first time posts. I see I have 2 options:
- I'm done
- Not sure.
I'm done is grayed out. I don't understand why as this actually now forces the post to be edited or voted up when in many cases neither of these are applicable.
So, I guess by voting up is a good way to start - it rewards new posters for good questions and makes them feel welcome - and what happens -- I'm limited to X number of votes a day (up voting and down voting). Currently there are 2.1k posts on Super User which need reviewing and with these limitations I expect it will take some time (although I use Super User, it's applicable to all sites on SE).
I don't think writing a comment saying 'well done for a good post' is useful either for future visitors (IMO it also may impact SEO but we won't discuss that here) but it adds 'noise'.
Any thoughts on this, have I missed the point?
