This has been brought up as a way to allow reviewers to more easily access pages in the middle of Special:NewPagesFeed and seems one of the non-controversial suggestions that has come from the WMF report on the growing new pages backlog. A quick way to filter pages in the new pages feed to a set date range could be helpful in getting pages in the middle more attention.
Honestly I won't be doing much page patrolling unless there's some way to start other than at the Newest or Oldest ends of the queue. I can't be paging endlessly to get to where I left off last time.
This shall be one of the foremost tasks in the development panel.Scrolling endlessly to get to where I left a certain-time-span back is ''dumb''.It has a huge benefit and there is no noticeable bane.
