Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

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

I recently had a question closed within less than two hours.
Now, I still think, it's a legitimate question so I edited it, adding grammatically correct questions.

I understand that there must be at least five highly reputed people who like a question to be closed before it is actually closed.

Now, when I look in the activity list of those who allegedly closed that question, I can not find their close action, except for two of the five people. So it seems that three of them never closed my question.

Is that a bug or expected behaviour?

i can see all 5 – Bhuvan Rikka 웃 Dec 27 '12 at 12:47
Where do you look that up - in activity - review? The close vote just might not be casted from the review tool but just in the question itself. – juergen d Dec 27 '12 at 12:48
Close votes per user are not displayed to other users. – Shadow Wizard Dec 27 '12 at 12:54
In case of Walter, I go to acitvity - all, go back 4-5 pages (right now, Dec 23 spans two pages). Don't see my close. – Ralf H Dec 27 '12 at 12:55
@BhuvanRikka: I can see five people on my question page, but when checking in their acitivity list, I don't (for three of them). – Ralf H Dec 27 '12 at 12:56
@ShaWizDowArd: Then why can I see it for Gnat and ElYusubov? – Ralf H Dec 27 '12 at 12:59
@RalfH because activities in the review queue are public... 3 users voted to close directly from the question itself, and it ended up in the Close Vote review queue and 2 more voted from there. – psubsee2003 Dec 27 '12 at 13:04
Incidentally, why is this gathering off-topic votes? – Rory Dec 27 '12 at 13:34
@Rory people here probably trying to test and see if their close vote is visible in their profile, making a point on the way. (Quite the same like rain of downvotes on any question asking anything like "why was I downvoted") – Shadow Wizard Dec 27 '12 at 13:36
up vote 7 down vote accepted

In the activity - review tab of your profile page you can only see what the tab is called: Reviews casted from the review tool.

If a user opens a question and casts a closed vote then this is not part of the review process and won't be logged in the activity - review tab.

So 3 users did not review but casted closed votes directly in the question.

Yep, worth to mention that your own close votes are visible to you via the profile page --> Votes tab --> closure. – Shadow Wizard Dec 27 '12 at 13:39
OKok, I understand. Maybe it was naive on my part to assume that casting a closed votes is an activity, too. I checked all activity, not reviews only. – Ralf H Dec 27 '12 at 13:53
@RalfH: As Sha Wiz Dow Ard commented: Close votes per user are not displayed to other users – juergen d Dec 27 '12 at 14:03
