My one question got four reopen votes. More than one day goes down, but still it did not reopen my question. What was wrong?

Question link

Someone explain, please

I followed the question How long does it take for a question to appear in the reopen queue?

    Can you link the question that was closed and voted for reopening? Also AFAIK you need to get 5 reopen votes.

  • I can't see the reopen votes here but from the time line I can see 2 or 3 reopen votes at some point but you need 5 for it to be reopened. As it has only been a day since it got closed, all you can do is have some patience and wait and see what happens.

The timeline of the question shows the Reopen review queue item ended up leaving the question closed. The reopen votes are still active, but somebody needs to go the question itself in order to reopen it; since the last activity on the question is 15 days ago, users are not likely to visit it anymore.

  • I not clear about Reopen review queue item .. but would you tell me my question will reopen or not ?

    Not unless someone else thinks it should ve reopened. You need 5 votes to reopen. Improving your question is the best way to make that happen.
