There are review queues for posts from new users (First Posts & Late Answers). Who is considered to be a new user for these queues? This question mentions new users as those below 100 reputation but it's in relation to post rate limit. Perhaps I'm looking wrong but I haven't found the definition for the queues.

Who is a new user for the review queue? Is it the same as for the post rate limit, i.e. <100 reputation?

According to this answer by Shog9:

Answers posted at least 30 days after the question was asked (when posted by a new user) are considered "late" for the purpose of that queue.

Since he links to the new user privileges page, it looks like a new user is defined as anyone with less then 10 reputation for the purposes of the review queues.

I could be wrong, but I'd imagine that reputation could be ignored completely for the "first post" review queue. The only reason I can see to include it is if we want to skip reviewing first posts by people who have the reputation association bonus after coming from another Stack Exchange site.

  • Thanks, 10 reputation definitely makes more sense then 100. And just to clarify - first posts mean really first posts, not all posts from new users, right?

    I submitted a request to broaden the First Post qualifiers here: ( meta.stackexchange.com/questions/171512/… ) I think expanding the range would help catch more problems.
