What is meta? ×

There is a flag button for voting to close a post. I can do that on my own post also.

What will happen when I vote my own question to close?

Is there possibility of losing points? –  Mawia Feb 23 '13 at 10:46
It is exactly as having your question closed by 5 users other than yourself. As long as the question is not deleted, you won't lose the reputation you might have gained. –  Bart Feb 23 '13 at 10:48

A vote to close on your own question counts as a regular vote to close. It is not a binding vote, but will simply be mixed into the other votes to close, 5 of which are needed to close a question.
