I recently made a for me, somewhat extensive code review and going through all the details I am unsure if I didn't lose myself a bit to much in reviewing.

Can we ask in someway to peer review a code review? Or can I ask a new question which points to the answer I have given on the said question, and have this peer reviewed?

I assume I can wait for comments or up and down votes, but as the question answered was over a year old, and my answer is pretty much tl;dr; I don't think anybody would read it through till the end, maybe not even the OP (if he is still around that is)

As I believe the link to the specific answer could be helpful, seeing it's really about the review itself for me, you can find it here:

    \$\begingroup\$ @Vogel612 IMO asking things like this on Meta is preferable, it not only leads to a searchable Q&A on whether we allow this - which allow other users to find the answer without asking chat, but also allows for a larger audience - as lots of users don't, and won't, use SE's chat. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Vogel612 It seems this answer on a related question disagrees that one should add it to the chat \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Well, if you want my peer review - it was perfectly fine. Well done! \$\endgroup\$ Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 5:31

As in any academic pursuit, the most interesting answers are ones that lead to more questions! Some of my Code Review answers have also been reposted as questions:

You may optionally use the tag for questions where you extensively improved someone else's code.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, I actually used that tag on my first and only question asked here (or at least, somebody added the tag). My question however not so much about the written code (though I think it is a big difference), but about the review itself. Would it make sense for me to add the link to question here? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ If you have a specific concern about your post, you could make a Meta post about it. Otherwise, if you just want some general feedback, I'd mention the post in Code Review Chat. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Aug 29, 2017 at 14:07
