Open the reviews page in Incognito Mode, so you're logged out, and you'll see it. The review count won't reflect anything you submitted.

Should a question be reopened if another close reason now suits it better?

I'll never vote to re-open a question just to close it again with a different reason. That wastes the time of potentially 10 or more reviewers, to what benefit? Unless I can band together four others ...
