This question...

Family visitor visa refused, should I apply for dependent visa?

needs its title corrected. But the question has been closed and so is off limits to would-be editors. Raising a flag gets a return value of 'helpful', but nothing happens.

How to edit a closed question?

    The question can be edited by >2k rep users and the author, I think, regardless if it's closer or open.

  • I see the flags were handled twice with a "helpful" closure. (but the title was also edited by someone with >2k rep) Jun 12, 2015 at 15:28

    @AnkurBanerjee, yes, that was Joe, see below. The corrections to the question have been made and all's well with the world now.

  • @AnkurBanerjee It seems you won the right to mark this one too as status-completed. :)

I managed to edit the question as you suggested. I added the refusal keywords where applicable. If indeed you have issues with editing closed question, it might be worthy to contact SE staff or post on Meta.SE.

  • Thanks, now TSE is in sync front to back, top to bottom
