When reviewing an answer in one of the Low Quality Posts, First Posts, or Late Answers queues, there is the option to watch the Other answers of the question. This gives a more "naked" view of the answers compared to the regular question's page. For example:

From review From original post
An answer showed in the Other answers tab of the review queue The same answer from the original question's page showing the buttons available under the answer

I can understand the reason: we don't want reviewers to be editing or flagging other answers - they should focus on reviewing the answer at hand.

But, sometimes I find it useful to link to other answers in a comment to the reviewed answer. Specifically, when someone posts a late answer repeating the same ideas from older answers.

Can we have the share button (or any other way to obtain a permalink to a specific answer) available in the "other answers" tab as well, so we can get a link directly from the review page (that is, instead of needing to open the question in a new tab, go the answer, copy its link, go back to the review and paste the link)?

  • How often does this happen? It's perfectly possible to open the original question thread from the review. From there, sharing is a click away.

    @Mast Sure. I was contemplating if to add this to the question but it felt like noise: I know it's just a few more clicks, but usually it means another tab and moving between tabs. Of course, it's not the most pressing request and doesn't happen all that much - but for the times it does happen, it makes it so much easier to stay in the same page and just copy with one click. I also have a feeling it is not such a technical overhead to implement so if we can make our lives easier in any way...

  • I didn't really like that the post tooling was included in the reviews, since they are supposed to laser focus you into some issue.

So it's been a while since I asked for this and I finally found the time to create a userscript to do that. It still has some work to be done on it (as it's just the second one I ever wrote...), but it already serves its basic purpose. Here's how it looks with the script running:

It has a StackApps page and a GitHub page. To install directly, use this link.
