The question Electromagnetic lens to focus cosmic rays was rapidly closed and then reopened.
I've tried that new timeline thingy on the left (below the voting buttons) and I can see when closing started and when it completed (on
17:18:47z respectively) and a time associated with the reopening (
00:35:05z), but I am not sure if that's when the first reopen vote happened (which would probably have been mine at
00:16:03) or if it's when the question was actually reopened.
How long was this question closed and the posting of answers blocked by five users in this case? Did it receive a speedy reopen by moderator, or did four other users concur with my vote within 20 minutes, or are some of the indicated times incorrect, or is my interpretation of them incorrect, or something else?
Why am I asking?
Usually a reopen happens more slowly than a close. My thinking on this is that closing sometimes happens based simply on other users' views, especially reflexive "me to" voting following a comment from a high rep user, but reopeners generally apply some careful reading and deliberation on their own. It takes time for four more reopeners to do so.
