Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When a question gets reopened, it should get a bump. By the time a post gets reopened, it's often fallen off the main page. Reopening implies that it's a decent question that's worthy of attention, so it seems fair to try to get it some fresh eyes.

Not sure if this is a feature request or a bug because Jeff said a little over a year ago that this is the existing behavior, but I didn't see it happen when I reopened Mobile site allows me to bypass closed questions 15 minutes ago.

+1 Why not? After all, when it gets closed, a question usually receive suspicious looks, and it's only fair to give it another chance if it was closed undeservedly. – Alenanno Apr 13 '12 at 16:35

This was a code regression somewhere along the way, it'll be fixed in the next build.

Very good suggestion. +1.

For the immediate solution, you could edit the question or one of the answers slightly to "bump" it up, not the ideal solution but it works...
