The purpose of this thread is to focus the attention of the community on posts that may require reopen and undeletion votes. A request should be posted as an answer below (one request per answer).

Some guidelines:

  • Please be polite, and respect the many different viewpoints in our diverse community. Please do not use this thread to engage in debates on site policy or other contentious matters. That should be done in a separate linked thread. The goal is to keep this meta thread free of tension, so that everyone feels comfortable posting here.

  • There is a reopen queue. Please wait until a post has gone through this queue, before posting here. Notice that the first edit after the question may push the question into the reopen review queue if the edit is done within 5 days of closure The question will only be added to the queue if you check the box to indicate that the question's original close reason has been addressed. And one can also use a reopen vote. (If the review has already been finished, it is shown on the timeline of the question.) When in doubt, wait 24 hours after the last substantive action.

  • To inform readers of the current (and past) states of the targeted post, please add the information Reopened or Undeleted at the start once the request has resulted in some action. (If the action is undone, add this too, like Reopened, Reclosed.)

  • Do not only post a request, like "request reopening of link". Instead, make a case for your concern. Yet keep in mind that it can be easier to get your request handled if you try to frame it in a way that takes the feedback the post received into account positively rather then seeking confrontation. Also, try to improve the post before posting here.

  • In case of "small" requests, like one missing vote, it can make sense to ask in chat instead of posting here. The room CURED is a reasonable place for such requests. The same guidelines apply there.

  • If you are involved in the thread which you post about (e.g., you asked the question or you answered it), please disclose this.

  • Please do not (vote to) delete answers to this thread unless there are serious problems.

    $\begingroup$ I applaud annual lists, lest the lists of "answers" becomes difficult to navigate. Also, @Paramanand, thanks for including the links to other "volumes", previously! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm sorry to be nitpicky about this, but the second bullet point may need some further tweaking. Rather than saying, "Notice that the first edit after the question may push the question into the reopen review queue if the edit is done within 5 days of closure...", it might be better to just say "Any question with significant edits that address the close reason(s) are automatically put into a review queue to be considered for reopening", which is the text in the corresponding Help Center article. $\endgroup$ Jan 22 at 9:57

Update: Question deleted, answer merged with another question's answers.

Consider undeleting and reopening the question

Growth rate of finite simple groups.

The question was sloppily written, but interesting. It was closed; later it was deleted by the system bot. For the record: I wrote an answer to the question, recording what I found in the literature. I also rewrote the question to make it more precise.

Edit: The original question was closed, due to lack of clarity. My edit aimed to improve clarity was rolled back to the original post, as written by OP.

    $\begingroup$ Your edit was a complete rewrite, given you added context not provided by the OP. If you feel strongly about asking a better question capturing the question you wish was asked, but was not asked, then post a new question to ask it. That is okay to do; but it is not okay to transform a very poor post into a post that was not asked. Ask it your self, instead, in a new post. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @amWhy: The essence of question is the same, the difference is the added background and a better formulation. But if the question does not get reopened, I will ask a new question myself. $\endgroup$ Jan 12 at 20:15

    $\begingroup$ The new question is here (for those who are <10k). Not sure why there is an edit war on this post.... $\endgroup$ Jan 24 at 21:45

Reopened.

This question was just closed as opinion based. It is not opinion based (what are the opinions on which it is based?) and should be reopened. The question asks about connections between PDE and representation theory. A similar, if not the same, question exists on Mathoverflow since 2019. It is upvoted many times and has several answers.

    $\begingroup$ I made some comments regarding this in the main thread itself. The "opinion" on which it is based seems to be whether the theory of automorphic forms falls under DE or not. Nevertheless, the MO thread seems to be a fairly objective/fact-based answer to the question. While the author revealed themselves to be beginning their Masters, a few close and down votes have come before this comment : that information is essential for deciphering the level of the student, and without it someone would have had to opine about the author's preference/aptitude for a certain subject. $\endgroup$ Jan 11 at 6:26

Reopened

I edited my post. Can you reopen it? I accept the answer.

@banana told me to do it

Sorry why my answer gets into comments? < 50 reputation?

Closed, Deleted

Here is a yet another question labeled as a "dupe" and closed and having nothing in common with the linked question. To make the linked question have any resemblance, with the question he closed, the closer actually changed the title of the linked question!

Curiously, this now closed question was not considered a duplicate yesterday until it got an answer. It attracted 5 comments including a lengthy comment from the user who later declared it a "dupe". Apparently it was not a dupe when his comment was posted.
