Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

According to Shog9♦, a post that gets edited in the close review queue and gets another vote should be reintroduced to the review queue. Apparently this doesn't happen when:

  • the person that edited the question (by mistake or misjudgment) casts their vote.
  • someone else casts their vote when the question still has close votes active.

I can't verify with certainty due to the nature of the bug (I need at least 3 users with close votes and a couple of hours to test) but that's what my observations have gathered.

You could test on a smaller site, no? – 3ventic Mar 15 '14 at 23:42
@3ventic the only small sites are too small to provide precise data points or fast due the fair amount that needs to be closed. – Braiam Mar 15 '14 at 23:52

Ah, yes, that is a clear enough confirmation. Damn, I'd like to see that behaviour changed. I do suppose that the edit bumps the post and the renewed attention may attract additional close votes but if those don't requeue the post either.... – Martijn Pieters Mar 16 '14 at 0:32
@MartijnPieters well, animuson couldn't so what could a mere mortals do – Braiam Mar 16 '14 at 0:37
