Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 just discovered I can cast a close vote on meta at 288 reputation, even though the privileges list marks it at 3k.

Is this a bug?

  • I do have the "Close Vote" privilege on SO.

  • The question was my own, can I always vote to close my own questions?
