I wanted to ask if the community was interested to have the vote threshold lowered, as they did on StackOverflow (We’re lowering the close/reopen vote threshold from 5 to 3 for good)
I ask as often post stay longer in the close and the re-open queue.
I personally think it would be a great idea.
If the community think it's, I would do a formal request to the CM/MSE's team.
I wanted to give a status update, as per the delay of that request;
In End-December 2019 before shog9 layoff, there was possibility to have such request done and reverting if the test was not ok.
I did that meta post.
I asked our CM for status update 3 times in TL over 4 months periods. shog9 had access to easilly change that, now it's harder to implement.
I escaladed the issue to Sarah Chipp there. I did so as their Q3 map was published but I don't see anything related that request. I did so too as it's clearly apparent to me that our CM need allocated dev time by their boss to do the request.
I escaladed the issue to Prashanth Chandrasekar there. I did so as it's a post following their Q3 map.
I will update when I will have some news, but at that speed and priority from SE's boss, I'm far to be optimist to have something done.
The change now seem planned in their todo list, following that new MSE post; MSE Feedback post: Feedback on Q4 2020 Community and Public Platform Roadmap. The change seem tagged for November (2020).
