I've asked a similar question before: Why are there no review tasks generated for a couple of my recent First Posts on a site? but that has been fixed. Yesterday, I posted my first answer on a site but again it didn't get reviewed. Did the bug regress, or was this answer skipped because I was over a certain reputation threshold already (due to repairing broken images)? I've written a SEDE query to list the review items of that day; looking at timestamps, it could have been the task with ID 318365, but that got deleted (or not created at all) somehow.

I checked my deleted answers and questions on that site already, but there were none.

The criteria for a post entering a review queue are always the same as the criteria for what would cause it to be invalidated.

The review queues are populated by running a query for all posts matching those criteria. If any are found that do not yet have a review task for them, the system creates a new one. Any existing, active review tasks that are not in that list get invalidated. There aren't separate criteria, and it all runs off the same query.

Your answer wasn't eligible because you already had 125 reputation on the site - it never appeared in the list to have a task created.
