I have a question about my Chemistry Stack Exchange post: Is there a terminology contradiction about whether the conjugate of a strong acid is a "weak base"?
The original version of my post was asking about several apparently contradictions in the ways that "strong" and "weak" were used for acids and bases. But, since I was asking multiple (albeit related) questions, it was closed as too broad. When the question was closed, it came with an automatically generated message saying "please edit your question."
So, I edited the post and pared it down to a single question. However, even after editing the question, it looks like it stayed in the "on hold" state, and then eventually switched to the "closed" state.
So, it looks like even after I edited the question, because it was still in the "on hold" and "closed" states, it didn't show up on anybody's radar as a question that was awaiting an answer.
After I edited the question, was the system supposed to automatically re-open it, so that people would see it as if it had been posted as a new question? (If it was, then is that a bug, that that apparently didn't happen?)
On the other hand, after editing the question, was I supposed to do something to re-open it or get it out of the "on hold" state, so that people would see it as a new question? (If so, then there's a different bug -- when the question was closed as too broad, the auto-generated message said "please edit your question", but it didn't tell me what else I was supposed to do.)
