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

If you look at this question, you'll see that it's been closed by BoltClock♦, and afterwards SLaks appears to have also voted to close. I thought once a mod closes a question, that should be enough. Right?

He was not always a moderator... – animuson Dec 30 '12 at 1:09
More importantly, why isn't ceejayoz's name linked to his profile? – Bill the Lizard Dec 30 '12 at 1:15
While I think that Flimzy and animunson have it, I'll note that you do (or at least did) very occassionally see closures attributed to six names which I believe is a sign of ungaurded asyncronous behavior. Presumably (if this situation still exists) the same could happen with a moderator driven closing. – dmckee Dec 30 '12 at 1:17
It happens. Deal with it. Move on. – Chris Gerken Dec 30 '12 at 1:42
@BilltheLizard: Wow, that's incredibly bizarre. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Dec 30 '12 at 2:53
@bill- ceejayoz probably deleted his account. The name is still displayed on closures and deletions. For example, on Programmers Mark Trapp still shows on many closed questions even though his posts show User8. – jmort253 Dec 30 '12 at 6:25
@jmort253 - But ceejayoz is also the person answering the question, and he is still linked in the answer. (Supposing there has not been two user with that name). – Bo Persson Dec 30 '12 at 8:04
Good point, @BoPersson. I have no idea... :( – jmort253 Dec 30 '12 at 8:07

That means the mod voted to close it before he was a mod.

Now I feel bad for asking... – Luchian Grigore Dec 30 '12 at 1:10
This. It was closed in July 2011, BoltClock was made a moderator in November of 2011. – NullUserException อ_อ Dec 30 '12 at 1:33
In this case it was actually two mods. SLaks is a retired moderator. – Tim Post Dec 30 '12 at 2:48
