For discussions related to re-opening questions.

This tag is intended for discussions related to re-opening questions.

A question can be re-opened if enough users vote to reopen. They can vote directly from the post or from the reopen review queue.

A post can enter reopen review queue, for example:

  • If somebody casts at least one reopen vote.
  • After the post is edited (assuming some additional conditions are fulfilled, see here for more details.)

The current version of the thread dedicated for this purpose can be also used if you want to request reopening a question: Requests for Reopen & Undeletion Votes, etc. (volume 01/2015 - ) [current version]

There is also this chat room which is intended mainly for discussions about closing, reopening, deleting, undeleting, improving and editing posts.
