What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Possible Duplicate:
What is a “closed” question?

There seems to be an close option for questions.

The question gets closed if it gets 5 votes for closing. The problem is, I am not seeing this option for every question (Even for the questions, whose answers has been accepted by the person who asked the question). I can see this for just the questions I have asked.

Is this because of some permission based on the reputation points? Or I am missing something?
