So I've recently learned my lesson about "No Action Needed" in the First Posts and Late answers queue. This has been discussed to death:
- So I failed this review audit
- Failed and banned for user who answered the question correctly?
- Looking for guidance on using "No Action Needed" in the first posts review queue
Obviously, it's important to have the No Action Button in the first place. But it's been suggested before in an answer to a buried, low view question that we should have more than one person needed to click "No Action Needed" to clear it from the queue
We know that lots of people are going to click "No Action Needed" when they should do more, it's certainly better to have it than upvote it, but if it clears it from the queue, then no one can review it properly, because it's gone. Most of the time when I review First Posts or Late Answers, I spend so much time editing the post that by the time I get back to the queue, all the other items in it are cleared, most of them by "No Action Needed".
Here's 10 most recent "No Action Needed" on Stack Overflow in First Posts:
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437697 - Clearly needs grammar and tag edits
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437692 - This has tags in the title and "I am new at this." and "Thanks".
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437763 - Tags in title, tons of fluff text, code that is not in backticks, and is probably a duplicate though I haven't checked.
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437561 - Tags in title, "thx!", code in a link, not in the question.
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437761 - Way too much code, Tags in title, missing backticks, "Any Help is much apreciated", other spelling errors.
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437756 - Code is poorly formatted (horizontal scrolling), there is no explanation at all.
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437765 - This is actually a fairly good question, but could stand a little cosmetic editing or even an upvote.
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437758 - This got self deleted after a deserved what have you tried comment.
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437689 - Tags in title, "and everytime I try something from the tutorials i find it give me errors please help me", "please help thanks!!! :D ", missing backticks
- https://stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/9437702 - Inadequate mcve, missing tags, etc.
Now that I've been educated (through a much-deserved review ban), it's super extra clear to me that "No Action Needed" is very often wrong. So, let's require more than one of these to clear the queue! This won't solve the problem, but it should help it somewhat.
Update: This "No Action Needed" was so egregious I had to edit it in. Yes, sample size of one, I know, but still: https://stackoverflow.com/review/late-answers/9460408
What exactly went wrong with your changing of the contact.php? Can you find and paste the part of the source code which is showing the Google Maps, or just paste all of the file here so that we may be able to help you better?

With the help of @Ixrec, here are the last 5 No Action Needed on Programmers.SE for First Posts:
- https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/117016 - This question was closed as primarily opinion based, and is also too broad.
- https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/117015 - No Action Needed is probably okay here.
- https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/117006 - No Action Needed is also probably okay here.
- https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/116913 - This post bumped the question which resulted in the question being closed, and the answer received two downvotes.
- https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/116793 - This question is primarily opinion based, and at the very least the title should be edited to begin with a capital letter, and there are other minor formatting errors
My conclusion is that I think this is much less of a problem on smaller graduated sites, and I'm on the fence about whether this change should be rolled out to all sites or just the largest ones.
