I asked this question 2 years ago and it was voted to close
Today I have modified it and clicked on the
reopen option. Now it says,
You voted to reopen. 4 votes from other users are needed to reopen this question
It's been two years, so my question is,
Will a moderator receive notification about my reopen request and cast his vote to open or close?
Should I contact other Stack Overflow members to cast a vote for reopening? At present, I don't know any other users in this site.
Should I ask a question in Meta and paste the link here so people will vote to reopen it? This approach should be avoided because it will result in asking countless number of questions related to reopening a question.
Should I paste my question link in a Stack Overflow chat group and ask the members to vote for reopen?
Does a question has compelling need? I believe every question in SO is meant to point in right direction if not possible to provide a direct solution
If there is no compelling need, should I leave it closed? Till now, I believed a question is closed because the quality of the question is poor in many aspects. If the user makes it a valid question through editing, they can give a re-open request.
Though, I am a member for more than 2 years, I am not aware of the process involved in reopening a question.
Reason for re-opening the question:
Questions are closed because they are not deemed valid. Once it is valid, then what's wrong with re-opening them?
