Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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

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
