Question got closed citing that it requests for "customer support"

You are asking the SE community why a specific vendor (in this case Google) made a decision to favor tool X over tool Y. Honestly, the community here is the wrong audience for such a question. If the ...

Reopen UUID collision probability question?

The scope of this site changed over the last years. When the question in stake was asked in 2012, almost any conceptual question about programming was allowed, and questions for third party resources ...

This question about why many programming languages do not support named arguments is not opinon based and should be reopened

I agree with the closure, but perhaps the reason isn't the best. There are two pieces to the question: Why do many languages not support named parameters? Is there a disadvantage of this that I'm ...

What's a reasonable delay before getting feedback from a reopen edit?

This site is not a high frequency site like Stackoverflow - sometimes things take time, and - believe it or not - sometimes even very active community members are bound to other things in life for ...

What is the process after a closed question was been edited to meet all the requirements but the reviewers don't react?

You wait. I closed it in response to flags. The post should now be in the review queue, since it was edited and has a reopen vote. Your second flag is still pending for a second moderator to review. ...

Reopen request for my question
