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

Lately I was wondering why my name is not appearing in the closed notification for questions I flagged.

E.g: I flagged a question as "not constructive" and it get approved than the question is closed see the following screenshots:

In an other way, why my name isn't part of the list ? do I need some privileges to be listed ? or I'm just getting it wrong and flagging is completely different than closing?

Your name only appears if you physically cast a Close Vote (which requires 3000 reputation), not if you flag it for attention.

"...if you physically cast a Close Vote..." I think we seriously need some Stack Exchange Hardware. Like a small pad we can hit with a hammer to cast a close-vote, a little cat which we stroke when we want to upvote (would also work for Reddit) and not to forget that big, red, fat "NUKE" button which does downvote, closevote and flags it as offensive. Bonus points for the "Whip of Punishment" with which we can cast a closevote, downvote and kill the OPs guinea pig for asking such a bad question, all at once. – Time Traveling Bobby Mar 11 '13 at 15:47
@Sulfurized that's a great gadget idea. Seriously. A USB punching bag style device or a "NUKE" button designed to withstand a lot of G's. It would take the hardware, and a browser extension. It would help channel aggression all over the world – Pëkka Mar 11 '13 at 16:13
And maybe some day, a USB-connected headset so we can mentally cast votes as well – LittleBobbyTables Mar 11 '13 at 16:44
