I assume that it is possible, but I cannot find it (I actually had to use Google to find the original message I was supposed to review).

So, if this is possible, please, make this option stand out more in the UI. If this isn't possible, please, make it possible.

Why this is needed

  1. Review doesn't show comments.
  2. It is more convenient to read the message w/o the diff.
  3. If I find myself needing to message the author or the editor to make a decision about the edit, it's really hard to do so w/o having a link to the original post.
  • Which review item did you have trouble with? I find it obvious for all the review types I can think of. Oct 19, 2016 at 19:11

1 Answer 1


Just click on the title. If the review item is a question, the title appears at the top of the content. If the review is for a suggested edit on an answer, the title appears above the answer. If the review is for a late or low quality answer, the title appears at the top of the question, below the answer. For a suggested edit on a tag wiki, a title containing a link to the list of questions and a link to the rendered tag wiki appears above the content.

  • That's another part of the problem: the review doesn't display the title of the message. The review is on an edit to a question.

  • @wvxvw The review should display the title, even if it hasn't changed. I see the title on this (after the fact) and this (pending), for example. Could you link to a problematic review item? Do you use any browser userscripts? Oct 20, 2016 at 11:43
  • OK, then it must be some browser / server rendering glitch. The one I had looked differently. At the top it had two buttons to switch between Markdown / parsed views and I don't remember what the other button was, but it didn't show the title.

  • I'll wait until there's a similar situation and will add a screenshot.

  • Hm. I saw review request today, and it had a title, which was a link to the original question. Maybe it was some kind of a browser / rendering glitch... anyhow, it doesn't seem to happen anymore.
