This can be a general thread that others may discuss their experiences. I have a question to which I couldn't readily find an answer:

What does it mean when the editor(in-chief, if it makes a difference) sends you papers to review often, like once a month? The editor even sends that person two papers that are on completely different topics at the same time.

Does it necessarily mean he likes you for a potential associate editor position at the journal? Could it mean he doesn't take peer-review seriously? There could be negative and positive views to take.

Your concern is understandable. Did he/she just send you that papers on other topics, without any additional remark?
Greetings!

Nothing special. The same content in every review invitation.
