This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You should not wait at all!

Things happen fast on Stack Overflow. We don't want question sitting around and getting answers while they are bad. That only encourages to ask bad questions and get answers anyway.

Vote to close (if you have the privilege). You can also leave a comment to the OP and tell him/her to improve the question.

If it gets closed and afterwards improved to be worthy of reopening then mission accomplished.

    Yes. This is exactly why it's been renamed to 'On Hold' rather than 'Closed' - it gets put on-hold so improvements can be made. – JonW Oct 24 '13 at 8:08
