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

I had posted a question on Stack Overflow and realizing that the question was a bit broad, I edited it. The link to the question is:

Stack Frames implementation in C++ for x86 architecture

I brought down the scope of the question but it was still closed. I have made further edits. I feel the question should be opened for further discussions.

I need to know how to go ahead with the re-opening request.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – Martijn Pieters, Travis J, MichaelT, Monica Cellio, ɥʇǝS
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

You have accepted an answer and the question was not going to get deleted as it has answers and positive votes. Why do you need it re-opened? – ben is uǝq backwards Jun 9 '12 at 13:02
Some people who thought the question was good upvoted it and I have been seeing people just downvoting it since then. If the question is not good, it should be removed else the status should be changed from CLOSED. – msiyer Jun 9 '12 at 13:06
Another problem: changing the question after folks answered it (the accepted answer even mentions Fortran and BASIC, but now you limited to C++) makes things even more confusing. Even if the question would be acceptable in its current state, then the edit has (or might have) invalidated existing answers? In that case I would not edit, and hence not re-open either. – Arjan Jun 9 '12 at 13:19
Let me just let the post exist without actually bothering about it. This will save us all a lot of time. – msiyer Jun 9 '12 at 14:02

Your question is still too broad. I'd consider it a lost cause because of the nature of it (pretty much unsalvageable without fundamentally changing the question (and invalidating answers)), it's best just leave it be.

In general, there should only be one question, supported by research of the topic (which yours is lacking).

Closed questions like this need no further action, there is no reason to delete or reopen.

This is not the question I am talking about. That question is deleted. If the downvoter does not even read the question, on what basis is he downvoting. He did not like the font I used? – msiyer Aug 12 '14 at 21:17
@msiyer Is your the question you're referencing not this one? – bjb568 Aug 12 '14 at 21:18
I deleted that question. If you could bring it back you would be able to see the effort i put into it. I deleted it today after downvotes and insults started pouring in – msiyer Aug 12 '14 at 21:22
Are you sure you're talking about this one? I doesn't look deleted to me. – bjb568 Aug 12 '14 at 21:23
That is not the one. I deleted it from Programmers site. I had posted a very long question which the lords did not like. Is there a way to bring back a deleted post? – msiyer Aug 12 '14 at 21:26
Your question says "I had posted a question on Stack Overflow and realizing that the question was a bit broad, I edited it." Are we talking about the same thing? – bjb568 Aug 12 '14 at 21:28
