When reviewing questions the blurb mentions:

These are the first questions a new user has ever asked on TeX - LaTeX.

When reviewing answers the blurb mentions:

These are the first answers a new user has ever submitted to TeX - LaTeX.

However, if I understand this correctly and as new user suggests, this excludes "experienced/inexperienced users on other Stack Exchange sites"*. I would consider "first questions/answers" on this site to denote exactly that - the first question posted by an individual on TeX.SX. Should this ambiguity be addressed?

* See, for example, many user profiles in the 101-126 reputation range (25 reputation span).

You only get the 100rep bonus once you have 200rep on one SX account. So you have at least a little experience in the SX site format. These review pages seem to target people who are new to the SX concept, not new to (La)TeX (or whatever the particular SX site is about). So this might be status-by-design.

  • Great clarification!

  • @Werner: I will tag the question now as {status-by-design}, ok? Commented Dec 2, 2011 at 9:25
  • That sounds good.
