Unfortunately, there are very few active regular users with +3k rep, which is the minimum threshold for a regular user to cast reopen votes. As a result, questions are almost never reopened by the community, i.e. by regular users only:

only 1 question got reopened in all of 2023 without moderator help. TheMaster Oct 30 at 10:16

Therefore, if mods are unwilling to reopen some questions, regular users need to coordinate, especially since reopen votes expire rather quickly.

So far myself and TheMaster have shown some interest to help cast reopen votes on questions that we believe qualify for reopening (examples).

Who else wants to join that "question reopen club"?

  • I’m voting to close this question because it is problematic to organize a question reopen club, or a question close club. The suggestion that the linked closed post has a list of questions closed for a lack of research is problematic, as is the suggestion that mods are blocking attempts to reopen questions closed for lack of research.

    @BlindSpots Why is it problematic? Stack Overflow literally does exactly this (SO Close Vote Reviewers) and it hasn't caused any problems.

  • That "literally" is something different, for a different reason, to solve a different problem.
