I've had a question closed by the community, i.e. five 3K users, not a diamond mod, and I've tried improving it. What should I do now? Wait? Flag for moderator attention? Cast a re-open vote? Discuss it on the (heavily polluted by off-topic discussion) chat room?

    Voting to reopen is good. Or flagging, depending on what mood the mod who sees the flag is in. Or posting on meta. Or chat. Anything, really.

  • Has the question by now been reopened? I can't find a recently closed question of yours. Dec 21, 2012 at 16:52
  • @StoneyB simchona said she voted to re-open it; that means she actually re-opened it, as a moderator's vote is binding.

I voted to reopen your question. As waiwai mentioned, there are several options to get a question reopened, all of which are valid. You can flag the question, vote to reopen it, post on Meta, or ask people in chat to take a second look.
