No way to correctly handle non-answers in First answers
Right now, users are forced to flag the post and then pick "Looks OK".
Could the "First answers" feedback options include something along the lines of "This is not an answer" (such as link-only, "Me too," or "Thanks" ...
Yaakov: This has been addressed, read all of the details here.
Please do not abandon progress toward the First Posts Steward badge.
Noticing "First answers" and "First questions" were now separate, I checked "First posts":
Slowly but surely, I was working toward the Steward badge with the ...
Bring back the "I'm done" button for First questions
I just looked at a post in the First questions queue which consisted of a large and unreadable screenshot of the code and some text asking a question about that code.
None of the canned comments really fitted for that post, an edit by me would be no improvement and ...
bug feature-request status-completed
Entirely Wrong "\l\a\n\g\u\a\g\e"
The English Language & Usage site should not be telling people to post code examples, but somehow it nonetheless is:
We even have comments complaining about people’s “solutions”:
This makes no sense given how rarely “solutions” is an appropriate description of an answer on ...
Please bring the skip button back
Can the skip button be also added again? I am still yet to go in college and am not aware of most concepts. In those times I used to skip the review. But in the new update skip button is not present. So can you please add the Skip button here?
Please allow us to flag the canned comments, and I don't think the system knows when a post has been corrected.
Please allow users to flag the canned comments for no longer needed (NLN). We're smart enough to know when the post has been corrected, which brings me to my second point: Is the system really smart enough to know ...

Missing 'Flag', 'Close', and 'Share' buttons in First Questions/Answers - Dup: 1, 2
Missing 'Skip' button in the First Answers queue
New actions for Late Answers queue not deployed
Typo in Help Center article for ...
The image with canned reasons for the first questions queue and the one showing a canned reason on an answer both show canned comments that are specific to code. I'm not sure if you're planning on only rolling these out to Stack Overflow or other code-specific sites for now, your post doesn't mention that, so I'm assuming you'...
In the First Answers and First Questions review queues, most post menu items are gone. Only the 'Follow' link is shown:
Flagging/voting to close is essential for these queues, and sharing may help too (I use it quite often to report a post to Smoke Detector.)
Disable replies to the community user
Just saw an interaction with one of the canned community responses out in the wild:
The Community user left a canned comment ("Please provide additional details [...]"), and the user responded by asking what they wanted more detail about.
This of course will notify no one. And ...
Exclude Community actions from popping up as "moderator actions" on the Moderator dashboard.
Comments from the Community user shows up as a moderator action on the dashboard. This is a bit of a distraction as every review now posts the comment as a Community user. Can we exclude the Community user's actions from ...
Add an option to (easily) delete anonymous comments
I suppose you keep track of which user posts the comment even though it's displayed under the Community ♦ user's name. If it's not feasible to add a Delete button visible only to the user who posted the comment, then maybe a single "No longer needed" flag (by them) ...
Since the Community♦ user is now posting comments on behalf of the review queue, this should be reflected in the profile description.
Especially given these will be posted on the posts on new users, that activity should be reflected in the profile to help against confusion. It could be as simple as a bullet (possibly on top of ...
First of all, thanks a lot for this detailed response to the Community's ... our feedback!
Users who try to respond to the Community bot's posts will be informed, additionally, that they are replying to an unmonitored bot account
Just a quick note on this: if they're using comment replies (@Community) that will be clear, but in my experience most new users ...
Rename the "Share feedback" option to "Share anonymous feedback" or add the word "anonymous" to its description
It's not immediately obvious that that option is used to provide anonymous feedback. It's only mentioned after one selects the option and then clicks Submit (and in a place where it's ...
Feedback from First Questions and First Answers is not really anonymous
While certainly the vast majority of first posters will not know how to access the information, as can be seen in the gif above, it is trivial to identify who provided the "anonymous" feedback. Moreover, experienced users may also form opinions about users based ...
UPDATE: I've noticed SE is trying to fix some of these issues, but the fixes create problems of their own. Since these have't been implemented yet, I've made a separate answer on that post to address those issues.
Reviewers are encouraged to leave comments for the post-author, but now they can also choose from a few options of canned feedback which will ...
We got a canned comment asking for working code on RPG.
Here is the comment. The answer was reviewed in the First Answers queue here.
Staff Kristinalustig stated in this comment:
The code-specific options shouldn't be showing on any non-code-related site. If you're seeing that anywhere, please let us know!
Thanks for the update, Lisa, and all the work the team(s) have put in on the review queues!
I will say I'm most disappointed that you have decided to abandon the plan for expanding/improving filtering options in the queues, specifically the options to:
Select tags you don't want to see review items for
Select more than three tags ...
Review tasks in both First questions and First answers are invalidated in any of the following cases:
14 days elapse since the CreationDate of the post
The score of the post is >= 3
For answers, if the post owner rep goes over 250
These are the default values, currently used across the network. They can all be customized per ...
I just realized something. I do not know if for now this is so, but I do not see it very correct. I am a user of the Stack Overflow community in Spanish and I have seen an automatic community comment, but this one is in English. Is this correct?
But the dialog box is also in English:
I have also seen that these comments cannot be deleted ...
Custom flags raised in review audits are real
Also, passing audits is too hard (but that's related to this answer and this one which are way more important than the issue I'm pointing out here).
I noticed that a First Question I was reviewing was actually an audit (it had already been deleted) and I was trying to figure out how to pass the ...
Make failing an audit only possible after selecting a feedback option and attempting to submit the dialog
I've gotten the "STOP! Look and Listen" message twice so far after choosing the "Share feedback" option when I actually didn't intend to post the comment. I just needed to open the dialog to test ...
First I want to confirm that Math.SE also gets a canned response referring to "working code and documentation citations" in the first answers queue, which is often inappropriate.
The latest update from SE staff says that they will address this problem by "revisiting the text of some of the feedback strings to try to make it as general as ...
Clicking the "Learn more" button in a review queue's Stats or History pages simply does nothing.
Ordinarily, this opens up a panel with a "Hey, congrats, you can now use this queue!" panel, but if the user hasn't actually earned the privilege to use that queue, nothing happens.
Here's an example from the Suggested ...
The "Delete" button doesn't work properly in "Late Answers".
As a 20k+ user, I see the "Delete" button; I believe this appears as "Recommend Deletion" to those reviewers with < 20k reputation (as in "Low Quality Answers"). However, when trying this option on a zero-scored answer, I see ...
Code Review is a code related site.
However Code Review is for asking "how can I improve my code" not "what is the answer to X" style questions, unlike much of SE.
As such the following comment from Community is not just irrelevant/nonsense (like asking for code on non-code sites) but outright harmful advice.
By leading users ...
Reviewers will have the option to submit their feedback as either the Community user or as themselves.
Sounds like a good plan. Could this option persist across reviews? It would be mildly annoying to have to check a box or select how you want the comment to be posted each time you do a review.
