What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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:


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.
