You're right, it must have been a manual flag. Note that after 7 days it's not possible to mark a post as 'Very Low Quality', so we even know that somebody must have cast a 'Not an Answer' flag; both flags feed the same review queue. Question: am I right to believe that all very old posts in the "Low Quality Posts" queue are there because of a flag, or ...

You don't. You post your own answer, referencing the other post, and explaining why your answer works better and where. We respect the intent of the poster in edits.

The cause here is a sanity-check which attempts to verify that a given review action is actually valid for that review: for a LQ answer, that means a Delete action is only valid if you have delete privileges, the answer scores <=0, and you still have delete votes remaining for the day; a RecommendDelete action is only valid if one or more of the above are ...

There's a check that runs when you submit a review which verifies that you're even allowed to review things in that queue - this check rules out a lot of weird / bad stuff, like folks reviewing after being banned from review, after being suspended, without having earned the privilege of reviewing, etc. It's also the check that grays out the queue on the top-...

I'd argue it should not be implemented, this is coming from someone who has made the same mistake. I think this because of the following; You should always carefully consider your decision based on carefully reading through the post in question, a knowledge of the tags (if needed, spam is spam!) and considering the implications of your clicks I learned ...

The best guidance seems to be here: "Editing a Question to Include a Comment Left by Asker" and here: "What if editing my answer makes comments seem out of context?": Comment on the question or the answer explaining the problem, the OP or someone with editing privileges can make the edit; and you won't get the rejection. Generally speaking, altering the ...

Unfortunately, you can't. It seems like review timestamps are deliberately truncated before they enter SEDE, just like votes: Why is vote time missing in the SE data dump and SEDE?. I'll update the Database schema documentation for the public data dump and SEDE to reflect this. Note that the ReviewTaskResults table doesn't include the user who made the ...

Saying "Leave Closed" or "Leave Open" in the review queues does not cast a vote. They are only review actions. You can see these in your "All actions" section of your profile (in the same bar where you found Votes) and can further filter to the Reviews type. But it is not possible to filter further by review queue or action, and any post that has since been ...

I think the answer to this can be found at How do you reopen a closed question?: Editing the body of a question within five days of closure will also add it to the Reopen Review queue, where people with the the ability to cast reopen votes will assess it. A question can only be added to the Reopen Review queue once per closure via editing, and if ...

I like this feature request because I did some research about these questions especially on SO and my impression is that most of these questions are indeed close worthy, but some of them also may profit a lot from improvement. Being in a review queue should be a good thing in any case for them. The clickbait might actually be involuntary, i.e. the result of ...

From some snooping around, this bug only happens if the first editor of the tag wiki submitted a binding edit to make the wiki (or excerpt), not a suggested edit. As suggested edits are based on diffs, and you can't by definition have a diff if there is no prior revision, when a user without enough privileges submits a tag wiki or excerpt proposal, the ...
