Question in mind: Algorithm to partition a number

The OP asked an unintelligible question that was quickly closed. However, the comments between the OP and other users soon made the question clear; at which point, I edited the already closed question. It's now a worthy question.

Sadly, it's still closed and not getting any attention, so I have no idea how to get the question re-opened.

I admit that this is partly my fault for voting to close the question, and I'll try to take a bit more time before doing so in the future. However, the general question remains: How do I get a question re-opened after a clarifying edit?

Why is this important? Well, the OP wants to repost the same question, with better wording; that will just clutter up SO, and it is not the solution.

Is there a canonical way to handle situations such as this one?

Good question - is it possible to mod-flag stuff for reopening? Can mods do that? –  Pëkka Nov 30 '11 at 23:47
    
@Pekka Yes. –  Matthew Read Nov 30 '11 at 23:48

@Matthew ah, cool. Side note, the careers link in your profile is broken –  Pëkka Nov 30 '11 at 23:51
