I tried to vote for a question on SO to be closed. I clicked the link, selected my reason and up popped the following.
Fair enough, I had not noticed the bounty. I've read the questions about how to handle the situation itself. But why is the "close" link still active anyway?
I propose one of the two following solutions:
- Don't show the "close" option at all when a bounty is active. This (as @MadScientist suggests) could lead to more Meta question on the missing option.
- Alternatively we have the very message illustrated above pop up immediately when clicking the link. That is, without having to select an actual reason for closure before.
