During a close question review, I tried to salvage: this question

Hopefully the edit was appropriate and turned it into a real enough question without changing too much of the question.

However, while I was editing, the question accumulated 4 close votes.

Apart from answering it, is there anything else that I should do to/for this question as part of the rescue effort?

    Now that it has closed, you could cast a reopen vote...

If the question gets closed, you can vote to re-open it (if you have enough reputation to do it), and give the question the attention of who can vote to re-open it; for example, you could open a question on the meta site for asking to re-open the question, or asking in which way the question could be made acceptable.

  • Now that there's a re-open queue you shouldn't need to post on meta to get attention, the queue will take care of that.

    If you want to know if the question still needs to be improved, a question on the meta site could help. The same is true if you really think the question should be re-opened, and you want to expose your reasons for doing so.
