I'm referring to this post. The link they dismissed it with did not answer the dismissed question. So, how do we non-mods request that the dismissal be reversed? (I did not post the dismissed question.)
This question has been answered numerous times. A good starting point for researching what would be the best older question to link this one to is this search: [personal-pronouns] i me
The older question it's been linked to isn't exactly the same -- the older one is put as a question about word order. But nohat's answer does answer the newer question because it was very helpfully written to cover more than just what was asked.
Another good existing answer also by nohat is this one: "Who wants ice-cream?" — Should I say "(not) I" or "(not) me"?
If the question is a duplicate of one or more different questions (in this case it looks like a duplicate of this one), then the best fix is to get the attention of either a moderator or (if any exist) a matching gold tag badge holder to change the duplicate list. This can be done any number of ways: chat, flags, meta, comments (but only if they've left a comment on the question), etc. Flags or meta are usually preferred.
Because it might take some time for the change to happen, it doesn't hurt to leave a comment pointing to the correct duplicate.
If there's no duplicate and you think the question should be reopened, you can cast a reopen vote when you have the privilege to do so. Until then, a good course of action might be to edit the question, if you can improve it. Sometimes a change of wording can make the difference.
For questions that would likely be closed anyway (for another reason) I generally leave instructions for the author on how to improve the question so it can be reopened.
I agree that both of these are bad duplicate targets. (I would immodestly suggest When do I use "I" instead of "me?", which I posted an answer to, as a better dupe target for this question.)
The problem is that the "Should I put myself last?" question, although explicitly about word order and not about case from the beginning (the first version said "regardless of the "me"/"I" usage"), attracted a number of answers about case. For example, nohat's answer is almost entirely about "and me" vs. "and I", and only addresses the actual question in the final paragraph.
Furthermore, the question was later edited to have the misleading title ""My friends and I" vs. "My friends and me" vs. "Me and my friends", and many questions about "me" vs. "I" were subsequently marked as duplicates of it.
The end result is that the question has become somewhat established as a "dupe target" for questions about "me" vs. "I".
The "who wants ice cream" question is also a favorite dupe target for any kinds of questions about case for some reason.
I agree that links to these two questions don't actually suffice to answer any and all questions about the use of "me" vs. "I".
No offense to nohat, but his answers to these two questions were posted very early on in the site, and they don't have any citations or discussion of complicating factors, alternative analyses, or terminological issues. A rule like
Generally speaking, in English, accusative (also known as “objective”) pronouns (like me) are the “default” form. That is, unless there is a specific syntactic rule requiring use of a different case, such as nominative (I), genitive (my/mine), or reflexive/intensive (myself), in English you use the accusative case
doesn't actually answer any questions about specific constructions, because it doesn't tell you whether there is any "specific syntactic rule" requiring the use of some other case in whatever context--e.g. after "and", or after "is". Because any particular grammatical context may have a different pattern of case usage, it makes sense to have separate questions about different contexts.
