This post is part of a larger effort to create Help Center pages for each of the Review queues. You can learn more about this project in the overview post. These posts will be locked so that everyone has a chance to review each original draft and provide feedback in the answers. We will continue to collect feedback until November 9th, 2020.
We are looking for your feedback on this draft for the Low-quality posts queue.

Heading: How do I use the Low-quality posts queue?
Access earned at $Privilege-PostEditing reputation
Posts entering the Low-quality posts queue have been flagged as problematic by users or recognized by the system’s quality checks to be potentially low quality. This may include:
questions or answers that are very short, in the wrong language or gibberish
new or follow-up questions written as answers
answers that do not attempt to answer the question asked or contain only links and no explanation
comments entered as answers (“I have the same question” or “thanks for the great answer.”)
It’s important to remember that an incorrect answer is not “Low Quality” by our definition. Incorrect answers should get a comment explaining any issues or be downvoted, not flagged.
First, check to see if the post is a question or an answer; it will be labeled as "Question" or "Answer" at the top. The majority of posts in this queue will be answers.
Choose Looks OK for questions that are on-topic, sufficiently detailed and not too broad. Use this option for answers that answer the question as asked, even if they may be incorrect.
Edit if the post is good quality but you can improve the post to make it better. Avoid editing posts that should be closed or deleted, as it will remove the post from review.
Recommend Deletion or Delete if you think that an answer does not address the question at all, is link-only, or is incomprehensible. Do not vote to delete answers that are simply wrong. You may leave a comment explaining the issues with the answer or choose one of the provided canned comments.
Recommend Close or Close if you think that a question should be closed (See What does it mean if a question is “closed”?).
Skip if you’re unsure about the post’s quality.
