Recently I reviewed some posts using SEDE query called "Marginal short answers with links".
- For the record, I have been using query parameters as suggested here, with the only difference that min value was set
0, for I wanted to additionally review posts indicating some sort of "community disapproval".
While reviewing posts listed in query results I downvoted some of these ("pulled a Gnat" as they say:). Soon after that, I noticed that many of the posts I DVed popped in Low Quality review queue: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
Given that mentioned posts were laying dormant for quite a long time (year or more), it looks like my votes triggered their inclusion into queue. Is that observation correct? If yes, I also would want to understand whether such a dependency of downvotes is intended by queue design?
Two days later I repeated experiment like above and, voila, 8 more posts were added to the queue: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. Next day experiment brought yet another 5 posts into the queue: 15, 16, 17, 18, 19.
What I noticed in repeated experiments is that queue was populated with posts that got zero score because of my downvote. It looks like quite a reliable pattern of cause-effect.
