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

Previously, if you opened the vote-to-close dialog on a question you had already voted to close, you would not be able to select any of the close options.


With the new changes to close votes, the vote button is still removed, but the close reasons are selectable. This could be particularly confusing in the case that you quickly select the "off topic" close vote reason: the "you have already voted to close this question" message is no longer visible, so the close button appears to be missing inexplicably.


Relatedly, it would be nice if the "You have already voted to close this question" message could be more emphasized. I often skip it without thinking, and have become confused about why I'm unable to vote.

I assume that -1 means "No, we should be allowed to vote to close questions multiple times" – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 13 '13 at 2:59
And just out of curiousity, if you hit enter from the popup (no focus on the textarea), does the vote submit? – ChrisForrence Jun 13 '13 at 3:37
@ChrisForrence It does not. (They don't have any custom key press handlers and a form won't be submitted when you press enter if it doesn't have a visible submit button.) – Jeremy Banks Jun 13 '13 at 3:46

If you voted to close a question, when you click Close again, you will not get the radio buttons.
