Say that I have asked a question on MSE and then it is downvoted, after I edit it to form a better question will my question move up the queue of questions so that people can read it again and upvote it?

  • Votes are not relevant. Edit will bump the question back to the top of "last active" questions. Jan 11, 2015 at 8:48

Any edited question will appear in the top of active questions list and in the top of homepage if sorted by active questions, unless the edit you made was in the grace period after your edit. Grace period lasts for 5 mins, in which you can improve your edit.

  • Just a minor clarification, So everytime I edit will it move up in the Active question list ??

  • @Meta Yes, if this edit hasn't occurred in the grace period (after an edit on the question there is a grace period of 5 mins, in which you can improve your edit and correct mistakes which you could make during editing).

  • @Meta Yes, it does. I modified my answer 5 mins ago and you can see your question in the lists I mentioned and on the bottom right of your q you can see: "modified 5 mins ago nicael". - i.stack.imgur.com/gqrtL.png
