Something just occurred to me as I viewed the comments to this question. Akhil, a fellow moderator, wrote that
I'll be happy to reopen if you edit the question to something more detailed and flag it for moderator attention.
However, the OP, being a completely new user, only has 1 reputation point. And a quick glance at the FAQ indicates that at minimum of 15 rep is required before a user can flag a question for moderator attention.
I am inclined to suggest that, in similar situations in the future (where a question is closed for being poorly presented, but yet still has a chance to be a good question after some editing, and with the OP having fewer than 15 reputation), the comment should instead/also introduce the OP to comment @-replies.
(To make this a question: are there other ways for users to get a moderator's attention?)
