I took a quick look at the review history in our first posts review queue and I've noticed some "No Action Needed" reviews that I didn't agree with. That's not a problem, I don't expect anyone to share my opinions on what makes a good Programmers post. However, I think the nature of the queue is such, that there is almost always something to fix, even if it's simply spelling and grammar. The queue hosts the very first posts from brand new users, who - quite understandably - aren't always familiar with our philosophy and rules.
To make matters a bit more complicated, it only takes one review to push the post out of the first posts queue. This means that we need to be a bit more careful with it, than - say - with the close votes queue. Your "No Action Needed" vote is binding, and if you use it carelessly you may cheat a brand new user of possibly critical feedback.
I'd like to ask all our reviewers to just skip the review if you aren't 100% sure that the post can be improved (in any way), or don't have the time to improve it.
