Sometimes a question is closed. Then the question is improved, so a moderator re-opens the question. However, the moderator is mindful that others may not see the improved question as worthy of re-opening.
Obviously the new edited question passed some threshold in the mind of the moderator in order to re-open. Yet, it may not pass such a threshold in the mind of another site user. Thus, another site user may raise a moderator flag to re-close. Thus, in a democratic sense that is one vote to stay open (i.e., from the moderator) and one vote to close (from the site user). However, the apparent lack of ability to record subsequent close votes, makes it difficult for site users to conveniently show that two or three people think that it should be re-closed.
- How exactly do close votes work once a question has been re-opened by a moderator?
- Is there a way of re-enabling close votes?
- What is the appropriate protocol for democratically handling requests to re-close?
