When you review closed issues for reopening you get this information:

This question was edited after it was closed. Should it be reopened?

But it says nothing about why it was closed.

Is there a reason for this?

I feel like it would be useful to have that information available on that page, do others agree?

  • +1 I agree, really it is difficult to guess the reason for the closer!.

That information is already there: Click on the "Question (revised)" tab; you will see the question in its current state, including the closing reason.
