I checked a lot of time that if a new user posted a question or answered a question, it won't immediately reflect in the review section; rather, it is available for review after ~5 minutes (I don't know the exact time). Why does it take this much time?


Question asked 5 mins ago:

Screenshot of question with timestamp "asked 5 mins ago"

Review section when that question was less than 5 mins old:

Review section when that questions after 5 mins:

Screenshot showing one post in the "First Posts" review queue


Questions aren't constantly scanned to be added to queues. Sometimes the scanner will get a question after it's been up for a few moments, other times it can take ten minutes.
