This is a follow up on "Should we revisit our “How do I root X?” policy. Now, with the reopen review queue in place, it should be easy to reopen the previously cosed questions.

How should we handle this in detail?

1 Answer 1


I suggest the following procedure:

  1. Search with a suitable query for closed how to root questions. Example.
  2. Nominate the question for reopening
  3. If the question is reopend, add it to the canonical question's cw answer and make sure that the question is tagged with the correct device tag.
  • Straightforward. We'd just need to double-check for duplicates I suppose. I'm also wondering if this is something mods should just do immediately, at least for the decently formulated questions. Oct 17, 2012 at 18:32
