Quite often, questions in the "reopen" review queue have no explanation at all as to why they should be reopened. Sometimes, it is possible to find a comment along the lines of "voting to reopen because XX" (but finding these comments is tedious), but often there is not even that. If there is no explanation, I most often vote "keep closed" or skip the question, because it is unclear to me why the question should be reopened. I could imagine that I am not the only one doing so. This dynamic doesn't help in (sometimes probably completely justified) efforts of trying to get a question reopened.
So I think it would improve the "reopen" review experience tremendously, if there would be a mandatory field explaining why the question should be reopened. This would enable reviewers to quickly get a grasp of what is going on.
Additional Info for more clarity: I am talking about the "reopen" questions without a substantial edit. As a reviewer, edits to the question are highlighted and thus visible. If there are edits, I can see how some one tried to change the question into a question that better fits in with this site. But about 1/3 of the questions in the reopen queue (a wild guess) do not have info why the question should be reopened nor any edit made to the question. I am talking about these.
All reopen questions should (IMHO) have either
- substantial edits to make clear why they should be reopened
- an explanation about why the (unchanged) question should be reopened
