It's been a couple days since my StackOverflow question was put on hold, and since then I have made changes that I think would qualify to have it taken "off hold." When do you think higher people will review the question before it's closed completely?
These days it seems that when a question clearly should be take off “on hold” it done so very quickly, given that the reopen review list is empty most of the time on stack overflow. A question that is “on hold” is added to the review list when it is edited, then high rep users can:
- Vote to reopen
- Skip (they don’t know what to do with the question)
- Vote to leave it on hold.
Once a give number of people have said “leave on hold” or “skip” the question is remove from the reopen review list, and only people that happen to see the question can vote to reopen it.
Your question is not clearly of use to other people, does not have a useful title and take effort to understand – so it has taken longer to remove the “on hold”. I consider it to be a poor but valid question like most of the questions on stack overflow.
