- How do you reopen a closed question? 6 answers
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
If you're lower rep and you don't know what the reopen link is as a result, then it's very easy to read this as "it's closed, but will be reopened if the reason for closure is edited away". My edit was approved, and I didn't understand why the question wasn't reopened until I remembered from another SE site that reopening is a separate thing, and a privilege that I don't have access to on SO.
Something's wrong here. The wording does not clearly state that I can edit a post, but editing has nothing to do with reopening.
And now that I remember that distinction (to be clear, I only know the distinction because I'm high-rep on another site; I didn't figure it out through SO's UI), I'm not sure what the path forward is. I flagged it and tried to explain this but I have no way of checking the outcome of the flag that I know of. I added a comment in hopes that OP or someone else could see it and vote to reopen, but there's no feedback there either. Future visitors will see that the question is closed, and they'll likely assume that it was closed for its current wording and thus see no reason to reopen.
If I see another question I can edit for the purpose of reopening, why would I do so if I have less than 3000 rep?
