This question over at LawSE has just popped up as a First Question review, but it's the user's second question (this is the first) which doesn't seem right to me.

Am I missing something or is it a bug ?

    I've seen on Worldbuilding a "first question" pop up one year and nine months after an actual first question. Missed out on the screenshot to my annoyance though. Glad you've asked this. Also, I didn't check the timeline - maybe the other one had been deleted and undeleted?? Closed and opened?? Who knows.

The First questions and answers queues will show up to the first three questions/answers for an individual user. A 2nd or 3rd question/answer will show up if the preceding questions/answers did not score positively (or were deleted/closed).

In this case, since their first question scored 0, their second question was put into the queue as well.

    But then the naming "First Question review" is... misleading. :( Sep 22, 2021 at 11:54

    The review queue is called "First questions" which could be read either way.

    @ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 as Wai pointed out, the queue names are deliberately pluralized (First questions and First answers) to include the possible of more than one item per user.

    @YaakovEllis all of the queues are pluralized since there are multiple reviews in each queue, so it really should be “first questionss” /joke Sep 22, 2021 at 13:13
