I'm not here to discuss whether the original question deserved to be closed or not. My problem is the following:
The original question received a bad reception, so I tried to fix it to my best abilities. It had gathered 1 downvote and 2 close votes by the time I got some major edits in.
It then received the following attention:
- A total of 3 upvotes.
- Three more closevotes (which closed the question 2 hours after the last edit and 3 hours after the major edit).
- Five reopenvotes (which reopened the question 2 hours after it was closed, 6 hours after it was originally asked).
That the system works slowly is one thing, but 3 people closevoting a question as "primarily opinion-based" when it clearly isn't, is beyond me.
So here's the question: what is causing these closevotes that lag behind the actual state of the question and what can be done about it?
