If you’re quick, you can earn two review ‘points’ for one review

I was on a smaller site doing reviews, reviewed a post in one queue, then when I went to a different queue I saw the same post, and again on a third queue.

It even let me go through the flagging process, but stopped me at the end with a message box telling me I already flagged it.

Could we not have to see posts we've already reviewed in other queues?

Note, the best question on this is here, but it's marked as .

Can't we just simply filter out posts that we've already reviewed?

  • Even though just had a double in Web Apps, the other day I had the triple (I think Super User, but not sure now). – Lance Roberts Jan 8 '13 at 16:56

    P.S. The question you linked is from the old review panel where posts were showing up again in the same queue if they didn't get reviewed in time, and there was no way for users to dismiss them from the queue. – animuson Jan 8 '13 at 17:43
  • @animuson, thanks for pointing that out, the link is a better one, can't believe they haven't fixed it, I'll edit my question. – Lance Roberts Jan 8 '13 at 17:54
  • I think @animuson is right - this is pretty much the same complaint as the last question. If you can identify a problem with this behavior, please edit to point it out; the way I look at it, if a post meets the criteria for a queue, it should show up there - if you don't think you handled it right the first time, you can always click "skip". – Shog9 Jan 9 '13 at 0:38
  • @Shog9, I completely don't understand why you wouldn't just filter it so that it would be in the queue, but the user who already reviewed it wouldn't see it. It's as easy as it can get. – Lance Roberts Jan 9 '13 at 0:40
  • Give me an example of a scenario where showing the post everywhere it meets the criteria is counter-productive. For instance: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/151665/… – Shog9 Jan 9 '13 at 0:46
  • @Shog9, the example was the three times in one minute I saw a post the other day, and twice that I saw one today. Certainly, if one has been COMPLETELY removed from queues, then putting it back in would be a reset (I can only see that happening in the CLOSE/REOPEN queues, so you could skip the filtering for those two if you wanted to keep it simple). – Lance Roberts Jan 9 '13 at 0:48
  • So you see harm in, say, a decent question showing up for you in both First Posts and Low Quality? – Shog9 Jan 9 '13 at 0:50
  • @Shog9, obviously not major harm, just a small waste of time, as I still look through it for bit before I realize that I had already processed through. Time is precious and I'm always looking for ways to be more efficient, and thought SO was always looking to be a more efficient website. – Lance Roberts Jan 9 '13 at 0:52
  • If you don't look at it, someone else will. Sometimes, that's exactly what's needed; other times, it doesn't matter so much. Frankly, the only queues I can think of where it might be desirable to exclude folks from reviewing the same post is the First Post / Late Answer pair, since they're pretty much the same thing with overlapping criteria - of course, this is already sorta handled for those queues (the "done" button is enabled immediately if you've already reviewed it in the other queue). On smaller sites, you might well see the same post on the front page, new questions, and /review... – Shog9 Jan 9 '13 at 0:56
