Just curious, what percentage of questions that get submitted (and re-submitted) for review get eventually reopened after the "significant edit" option was added to stackexchange sites?

I've been submitting review requests for a lot of my questions that don't get re-opened. (This is not a complaint, I just want the statistics).

  • Ah. Thanks @41686d6564standsw.Palestine! I agree, that is not a duplicate.

    This number is different for every site. Are you wanting this number for a specific site, or are you wanting a number which includes the data from every site (i.e. one number including all such questions posted on every SE site)?

  • @Makyen all the sites combined, and I also want data for Stack Overflow specifically.

    Over what period are you wanting this data? Are you wanting all-time historical data? Do you want data covering the last year? Prior years? Of significant note is that in 2020/2021 there were significant changes as to how questions entered the reopen queue, which should have substantially affected the numbers which you're looking for. Those changes make it inappropriate to look at numbers for this over all-time. Numbers really should be separated into "before" and "after" those changes (both excluding "during"), with 2022 the first year with those changes complete.

  • @Makyen after the significant changes. Thanks for clarifying this.

    Anecdotally, I've had quite a bit of success using the checkbox, but that's been on a medium sized site that only requires two other people to vote to reopen, plus I know the site inside and out. It may be hard to draw any meaningful conclusions about each site from the data.

    Probably of interest are the "year in moderation" posts, which are posted to each Meta site once a year. For SO, the most recent is "2021: a year in moderation". They contain line items for "Questions closed", "Tasks reviewed: Reopen Vote queue", and "Questions reopened", which will at least hint at the numbers you're looking for, but won't be exact and will be inaccurate compared to current actual, because substantial changes were made substantially into the year and the differences to 2020 indicate those changes made a dramatic difference.

    IIRC, there is, somewhere, a post from someone on staff with numbers close to what you're interested in, at least for SO (maybe network wide?), with reopen queue % performance, including re-closing and deletions, but I don't have a link for it and might be misremembering. It was probably on Meta Stack Overflow, but my memory of it is vague at this point.
