Getting a question reopened is very, very hard. This is in part because the system doesn't encourage us to review edited questions. If I open a question and I see that five users who I know and trust have voted to close it, there is a huge discussion in the comments underneath, and there are some downvotes, there is little incentive for me to actually look at the question and judge whether it should be reopened: It's already taken care of by my peers. Of course, in an ideal world, I would to look independently at every question with my own eyes, but it just doesn't always happen.
There are the reopen queues now that help get questions reopened and that's cool; still, now that we're reworking close messages and possibly explicitly promising OPs that their questions actually have a chance of getting reopened, can we do them a favour and show a banner:
This question has been edited since it was closed.
Please review whether the problems that lead to its closing have been fixed by the edit. If they have, consider casting a reopen vote. If they haven't, no need to do anything.
or to prevent blind reopen voting:
This question may deserve reopening.
Please review whether the problems that lead to its closing have been fixed by the recent edit. If they have, consider casting a reopen vote. If they haven't, no need to do anything.
under the following conditions:
- If a question has been edited substantially after closing
- If one reopen vote has been cast already* (by someone other than the OP)
- to users with reopen powers
*this would prevent the banner from showing up on every question that got some minor edit. The limitation may not be necessary at all, one would have to see
