I posted https://bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/33029/bike-mystery-nice-lightweight a few days ago ...

I have responded to the requests of some people but am still on "hold". Why?

    This is a question for meta.SE, not bicycles.SE. It takes 5 re-open votes for someone to re-open your question.

    The way things work is that it takes five votes from people with 3000 rep to close or reopen a question, or one vote from a moderator. At present you have three reopen votes. Perhaps adding the kind of photo Daniel asked for would help get those votes.

The comments sum up why it wasn't immediately taken off hold, but I'll give you a little more info.

When you edited the question, it went into a review queue for mods and users with 3000+ reputation. If one mod or five regular users votes to reopen it, it gets reopened. As it happens, I'm both a mod and the fifth person to vote to reopen. So you're good to go again.

Incidentally, I also made some edits for clarity. Feel free to edit it further if you feel that my edits detract from your question.
