I'm aware that questions that are edited within 5 days of being put on-hold are bumped into the Reopen Queue.

However, it's not clear whether rolling back the edits will remove it.

I'm curious about this as there's been a case where a user has made an insubstantial edit to a closed question, which has put it into the Reopen queue - I obviously can't tell whether they voted for it themselves, but there's strong evidence to believe they have (based on past patterns).

  • If they voted to reopen, then the question would be in the reopen queue anyway, edit or no edit.

  • @Weapon yup, but my understanding is that if the question is automatically added, it'll state that in the queue item (as it did for this question: This question was edited after it was closed. Should it be reopened? or something like that), rather than just Should this question be reopened? I might be wrong, though.

No, a rollback does not remove a post from the reopen review queue if it was entered through an edit.

Instead the review shows that the most recent edit was a rollback:

rollback in review
