Why is the author of a post not notified when a question is about to close? Many times I have found the question closed only when I visit the question for a probable answer barring the author to clarify his question.

Have you tried rediting the closed question? I'm pretty sure the author can still edit a closed question? – Jorge Castro Oct 1 '12 at 15:41
@JorgeCastro will re-editing the closed question will re-open the question – Namshum Oct 1 '12 at 15:44
No, but you can certainly edit to mention why you don't think it's a duplicate and fix it up so that people can vote to reopen it. – Jorge Castro Oct 1 '12 at 16:42
Just edit it, or propose one, and then flag for moderation the question explaining what was changed and why do you think it should be re-opened. Normally a small improvement and a request from the OP to re-open a question are enough for us to take action. – Bruno Pereira Oct 1 '12 at 19:20
