OpenSource Devs: How do you deal with pull-requests in your repos?

I've got some repos with received PRs from contributors. I've reviewed them and requested changes as those changes didn't meet my requirements / needed work. - So far, nothing special.

Now those PRs are slowly rotting there while the contributor does not make my requested changes (or argue against them)…

Do you overhaul those PRs yourself? Do you close them? When do you close them? Do you nudge the contributor? How often?

Maybe you can open a pull request on their pull request with the changes you are looking for after they don't answer for a few days.

When I do pull requests I mostly set the option "allow edits from maintainers" in the hope that they can improve my pull request in a way that it get merged. :fairydust:
