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

[Edit: not a bug, it's a feature]

Yesterday this ex-question definitely had 2 reopen votes. Today the total was reset to zero. I tried re-casting the vote and it was accepted fine, and is still there now.

I thought maybe they're just reset after a certain length of time, but I can't see any mention of this and apparently reopen votes have been buggy lately so I thought it was worth a mention.

Close and reopen votes expire after 4 days if the question doesn't actually get closed/reopened (i.e. doesn't reach 5 total votes).

You can check the FAQ for closed questions for more info.

Close and reopen votes decay after 4 days. The question was closed on Jun 9th and it is now Jun 15th, so it may be that those 2 reopen votes were cast over 4 days ago, when the question was first closed.
