The new feature of
[on hold] instead of [close] is great, but maybe it's not fully implemented yet. As of now, we put questions on hold to encourage editing, but when the question should be nominated for not being on hold, we call it reopen. Is there a specific reason for this or is it just a labeling mistake?

"On Hold" questions actually , so it makes sense to be able to reopen them. "On Hold" means "Closed, but may be re-opened". are closed

I think it is because we have not changed the labels. It is still 'close'/'close votes' and 'reopen'/'reopen votes'. Which, I think, should be changed everywhere too.
