What happened to the German Panther that the British failed to PIAT twice?,

Why did British officers just stand and cheer, while a lone lad was shot in the back trying to fetch an airdrop?,

Why didn't Maj Gen Urquhart and his men silence their semi-automatic pistols?.

At Latin SE, moderators counsel users to ameliorate then re-post old deleted questions, rather than just waiting for 5 undelete votes.

These questions have been asked already and were closed and then deleted by the system.

I'd like to ask, did you ameliorate?

Those questions were just reposts of closed and deleted questions with no improvement so I put them on hold for the same reason. You're welcome to improve them and then the community can review them and vote accordingly.

AFAIK, at least 2 of these questions were asked before by you and closed/deleted at that time. These seem to be nothing more than reposts and suffer from some of the same problems as before.

I only voted to close one of them (about the airdrop) because it contained 4 questions and thus is too broad.

As for the others, I would presume (pending the moderator's comment) that since these were reposts that they were closed for the same reason as the previous versions were.


We can't comment on the action of other unrelated sites' moderators but generally we, here on M&TV, prefer to close the question so it can be improved and then re-opened to avoid answers being posted to off-topic/sub-standard questions.

    He actually does have a point that if a question is terribly downvoted and closed, it can be preferable to just reask it to give it a fresh start if there was significant improvement, since frankly, this site is quite a bit quicker with downvoting and close-voting than it is with reconsidering these votes once made and an open and improved question with -3 is...kinda crap, even more so if you need the community or moderators to undelete the question in the first place. But of course that only makes sense if there actually is significant improvement (not to say any at all). – Napoleon Wilson Feb 17 at 14:23
