I just had a question come through in the "reopen vote" review queue which was posted sometime in June 2014. It was quite an interesting question but perhaps overlong and I felt that the length of time it had been closed made it less of a good idea to open it back up, especially as it was closed at the time for being off-topic and, me still being relatively new here, I'd hate to step on anyone's toes using my newfound powers for evil.
That said, at least two members for whom I have an enormous amount of respect have voted to reopen it, so I've become confused by the accepted etiquette around here for reopening older questions.
Is there a particular convention I should be following? Or should I just ignore when it was posted/closed and just reopen it if I think it's a good question that will get some decent answers/discussion?
