When a question gets reopened, it should get a bump. By the time a post gets reopened, it's often fallen off the main page. Reopening implies that it's a decent question that's worthy of attention, so it seems fair to try to get it some fresh eyes.

Not sure if this is a feature request or a bug because Jeff said a little over a year ago that this is the existing behavior, but I didn't see it happen when I reopened Mobile site allows me to bypass closed questions 15 minutes ago.

    +1 Why not? After all, when it gets closed, a question usually receive suspicious looks, and it's only fair to give it another chance if it was closed undeservedly. – Alenanno Apr 13 '12 at 16:35

This was a code regression somewhere along the way, it'll be fixed in the next build.

Very good suggestion. +1.

For the immediate solution, you could edit the question or one of the answers slightly to "bump" it up, not the ideal solution but it works...
