Questions tagged [reopen-closed]

A request to reopen a *specific* closed question, or receive further explanation of why it was closed. If your request is to reopen a closed question, it should be one here on Meta Stack Exchange. If it's on another site, ask it on the per-site meta instead. For questions about the reopen process itself, use the [vote-to-reopen] tag.
