I have a minor annoyance/inconsistency with the close vote review queue.
Suppose I’m looking at a question which has been flagged as a duplicate of another question.
- On the flagged question, I can only see the number of answers/whether there’s an accepted answer. I can‘t see the answers themselves.
- On the duplicate question, I can see both the number of answers/whether there’s an accepted answer and the answers themselves.
It would be nice if I could see the existing answers on the question I’m about to review, not just related questions.
Why do I want this?
Particularly when I’m reviewing Story ID questions which have been marked as dupe, I wanted to check the answers on both of them for an OP confirmation that it’s the same story. (Probably unnecessary if it’s already got CVs, but I like to be thorough.)
Right now, I have to click through to the original question, but I can immediately see the answers on the dupe target. That’s mildly annoying. It would be a little easier if the answers on the review question were immediately accessible. #firstworldproblems
It would be sufficient if this just occurred on questions with dupe votes, but it’s probably easier and no less arduous to enable it for all close vote questions. But this is a very low priority request – the annoyance is minor at best. But hey, if you don’t ask, etc? :-)
