When a question gets closed, it can be asked for reopening, but in my experience that is very hard to happen. Even if after editing it shows again in the main page, the tag "[closed]" acts as a deterrent for further looking.
Voltage of SODIMM DDR3 slots is an example of my own, which triggered this OP (although I think this since a long time ago, based on participating of many SE sites).
Is there any way of improving the chances of consideration for reopening? (perhaps the need for 5 votes is too strict, I don't know).
A few related (some are subjective) remarks:
- The chances of consideration for reopening needs improvement... perhaps the SO admins don't think the same way.
- I see often questions that are closed, and they look quite appropriate to me. I don't know if that is always after edits or not. Moreover, in many cases I can't figure out how the reason provided for closing applies to the question. How can I benchmark Linux PC is an example.
- Some of the closed questions have answer/s that suggest they were reasonable, as per (same example as above):
- The answers are upvoted,
- The answers were posted by highly reputed contributors,
- The answers are marked as accepted
- It would be interesting to see statistics on closure of questions, reopening, etc. Also tied to reputation, and other factors that help understanding and improving. I guess that is actually done by the SO team.
Here a few examples of what can be done within the current limits of SO, which in practice looks insufficient to me.
