Just wanted to consult regarding reviewing answers flagged as low quality. More often than not, I encounter these answers on review queues for low quality posts: There are only 3 given actions for these type of answers:
- Looks OK - This, however, does not look OK so option 1 is out.
- Edit - Option 2 can be picked but for me, I think its kinda hard to edit this without deviating from the author's intent (and if you knew the answer, it might be best to just post an answer instead). Most one can probably do is provide grammar corrections and all but, it would still be a low-quality answer.
- Recommend deletion - Option 3 is also a no-go since this post can still be fixed if the OP will edit it. I learned not to be trigger-happy with this option.
My question, then, is: should the option to let the OP know that his answer can use some editing be a valid review action for Low Quality Posts queue?
In First Posts queues, for example, providing a comment to the question/answer to let the OP know of possible improvements for the post would count as an action. The same kind of comment to the item in the Low Quality Posts queue can be provided but then, it will be as if no review has been done on the item since the action done was not among the three choices. So, the queue will still have this item even though the reviewer has already let the OP know the problems in his/her post.
