Currently, when a question is closed, it gets a banner that includes the line:

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The "help center" link goes to /help/closed-questions, which gives an explanation of how the close and reopen system works.

Are there statistics on how often the OP actually clicks through to the help center after getting their question closed, specifically new users (say, first question, or first closed question)? Would it be possible for staff to get these stats?
