My original question was put on hold with a message saying "If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit your question."

I have edited my question to be very specific. Why is it still on hold?

Here is the link to my question: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/31514290/how-can-i-use-php-with-the-paypal-api-to-retrieve-transaction-data-for-an-accoun

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – Patrick Hofman, Shadow The Dragon Wizard, ᔕᖺᘎᕊ, Fish Below the Ice, gnat

    Editing it doesn't mean it will automatically reopened. Every edit is reviewed by humans. It takes time to review such things. And if the edit doesn't seem useful, it will never be reopened. (Also, this is Meta Stack Exchange, you should have posted on Meta Stack Overflow, where the Stack Overflow site is discussed). – Patrick Hofman Jul 21 '15 at 11:01
  • see Lots of questions in the reopen queue "a closed question will automatically be added to the reopen queue when it is..." etc – gnat Jul 21 '15 at 11:27
  • And just for some further help, as you are a new user here, you are getting downvoted here (likely) because "doesn't show any research effort". A search would likely have answered your question, here or on meta.stackoverflow.com. Also, reading about how the site works in the help center(s) is a valuable thing to do as a new user. There are lots of things here on Stack Exchange which are not like other sites :) – James Jul 21 '15 at 12:22

This should be posted in the Stack Overflow Meta, not here.

But I'll answer anyway: once your question has been edited it is then placed in a review queue, where helpful people with sufficient reputation can vote whether to reopen it. If the question gets five reopen votes then the post notice is removed and the question is reopened. But there is no guarantee, it might still remain closed - I seldom vote to reopen when I do reviews in that queue. But if you've added enough to make it answerable then you might make it.

Once a closed question is edited in the way you describe, it is placed on the re-open queue.

The question will be re-opened when (if) it obtains enough votes to be re-opened.

Be patient.
