Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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 closed, it shows who closed it; if a question gets reopened, it no longer shows who closed it, nor does it show who reopened it. Is there any way to see who reopened it and/or who closed it previously?

The particular example I was looking at is Optimization practice dealing with points on a line.

You can see the history of a post by following the link:

http://stackoverflow.com/posts/[PostId]/revisions

This will be available via the time on the last edited flair:

Where to get the revisions

If there's no last editor you can type the URL yourself, or there is a StackApp which will add a "history" link to all posts.

Check the revision history.

http://<site>/posts/<post id>/revisions

If the question has been edited, click the "edited xyz" link:

I can't find any reopened questions, but http://meta.stackoverflow.com/posts/194/revisions shows the name of the closers--so I guess the usernames of repoeners will be visible as well.
