This question How can I convince my roommate to switch from a wired connection to wifi? was closed, the reason being "unclear what you are asking". However, the question is very explicitly "how can I convince someone do something". It has a lengthy description, but the question itself is very clear, and I have seen tons of questions here in this same exact format, and there's usually no argue what they're asking.
Also, meta question Are questions about 'how to convince another person to change their behavior?' on topic asks if questions in this format should be off topic and it has seven downvotes.
I can't see from the comments, if it was first closed and then the author modified the question. In any case the close voters didn't undo the flags. Is there a way for me to do something about it?
