This Sept. 2022 question was closed unilaterally by a mod on 2023-01-26 as “needs details or clarity”: How do I schedule a comment on Reddit? — no comments were left to explain what details or clarity were needed.
The question was initially closed by a single moderator, but after I posted this meta post, it was then reopened by three users, including Sathyajith Bhat, who was a moderator at the time). (Question timeline page) However, the question was closed again on 2023-03-24 by the same moderator who closed it the first time, after they had posted an answer (which indicates that the question was not unclear), dismissing the actions of three users, including a moderator. The question has been closed twice without explanation, which is unfair to the OP and to the community.
I am puzzled by this situation — the reason for closing the question in the first place and why it was closed a second time despite having the support of two users and a moderator.

The question essentially asks: “How do I schedule a comment on Reddit?” It is a straightforward and clear question that seeks to learn how to schedule comments on Reddit, a web app (which is on-topic). Could someone please kindly clarify what part of it is unclear and point me to the community consensus that led to the closure of the question?
Rubén: The OP mentions Gmail, Twiter and "multiple source outlets" without providing enough details to be certain to what they are referring. Also it's not clear if they are looking for a built-in feature or if they are looking for a third party, API / scripting tools.
The part about “multiple source outlets” that OP mentioned is not essential for answering “How can I schedule a Reddit comment?” The question is clear and reasonable even without that part.
The possible solution (whether built-in, third-party, APIs, scripting tools, etc.) does not affect the clarity of the question. Any of those options would be a valid answer to the question. (That’s why OP asked in the first place; they don’t know the solution).
Oct. 2023 community consensus on whether research is mandatory
As of 2023-10-20, the community has reached a consensus on required research standards, which is documented in the meta post, Does Web Apps Stack Exchange Require Research? I believe the question in question follows the site policy and deserves to be reopened.

Please clarify what you mean by "how Gmail and Twitter do it" and provide additional details about the information you are referring to from "multiple sources"
In response to this moderator comment, I suggested an edit with multiple sources to clarify "how Gmail and Twitter do it" and how to schedule Reddit posts for later, which was approved on 2023-12-20. I believe this question is now clear enough and contains the required details to be answerable, if it previously did not.

This question has an accepted answer since February. The update done 17 hours ago doesn't make sense. You should post a new question instead.
Two users, including Blindspots ♦ (moderator), have given their approval for the suggested edit, indicating that they find it coherent and supportive of the original poster’s intent. What else is missing or unclear in the question? I’m hesitant to create a new post, only to face closure for the same reasons as the current question. Please clarify what else needs details or clarity from the question, so that I can incorporate the feedback when I post a new question.
I would appreciate it if someone could explain what is still unclear about the question, as it seems straightforward and clear to me. Otherwise, I would like to request to please reopen the question again: How do I schedule a comment on Reddit?
