I asked this question Zero Radiation Nuclear Bomb Possible? and a moderator completely understood my question, provided an answer and mention he would like to see other answers, but it still got put on hold for being unclear after he posted. How is this? I believe that it was too quickly dismissed without thoroughly reading it by each persons who closed it.
[...] How is this?
I'm guessing that you're asking how it's possible that a moderator answered your question and then it got put on hold. Simply, there's nothing that makes it impossible. There's no rule or anything like that which keeps questions from being put on hold after they have answers. (Regardless of who posts the answer.)
I believe that it was too quickly dismissed without thoroughly reading it by each persons who closed it.
Well then, you basically have two options:
- You can just edit your question to clarify it anyway. That is, make it so that even someone who doesn't spend enough time reading the question will get an unambiguous sense of what it's asking. After the edit, the question will automatically be placed in a queue to be reviewed, and if enough people agree that the edit fixes the issue that caused it to be closed, the hold gets removed (i.e. the question gets reopened).
- You can try to convince five site members with reopen vote privileges, or one moderator, that the question is fine as is - that is, that all five people who voted to put your question on hold made an outright wrong decision. Honestly, this does not usually work. The bar for convincing people that five close voters all made an error is very high. That being said, if you want to do this, the best way is by making a meta post clearly laying out an argument for why you think the original decision to put the question on hold was wrong.
