I would love to see an improved workflow for when I review a duplicate question. My current workflow looks like this:
- Read the question that is nominated for closure
- Read the suggested duplicate target(s)
- Return back to the question
- Take an action on the post
Especially here on MSE we get a lot of duplicate questions, and as a somewhat regular user I usually know a question is a duplicate after I read the first few sentences of a post in the queue. More often then not I also know the appropriate duplicate target. So when I switch to the duplicate tab I almost instantaneously know if it is the right duplicate target or not. I would love to then just be done with it by casting the close vote.
However the review queue currently forces me to move back to the original post's tab, to be able to complete my review.
This used to be allowed, but it became broken following some changes to the old review queue layout, and was fixed by removing the option in the new layout.
