This question already has an answer here:

After this question was put on hold, I proposed an edit (which was accepted), clarifying what was presumably the OP's intended meaning. Given that the edit was more than 24 hrs ago, is it normal for the question to still be "on hold"? Is something more required to remove the "on hold" status?

    $\begingroup$ The question has three votes to reopen now, two more are needed. It was over the weekend, when the site is slower. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jun 1 '14 at 22:38
  • $\begingroup$ This is not a request to reopen, but is asking for support to understand why it hasn't been reopened. (Thank you for your suggested explanation above.) $\endgroup$ – r.e.s. Jun 1 '14 at 22:43

  • $\begingroup$ ...now 4 votes to close... $\endgroup$ – user1729 Jun 2 '14 at 8:24

Because it has not (yet) acquired the required number of votes (5) to reopen it.
