What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Currently close vote review queue shows the top level close reason in the header, but some close reasons, for instance, off topic have very different sub reasons. For instance, "demonstrate minimal understanding" is different from "This question belongs on a different site in the stack exchange network".

It would be nice if sub close reasons were also shown.

It would also be nice if we could filter on those sub-reasons. –  Bill the Lizard Aug 9 '13 at 16:38
    
Does it matter how other people voted? If it deserves to be closed, it deserves to be closed. –  Wooble Aug 9 '13 at 17:05

@Wooble Yes, it does matter how other people voted. If I can pinpoint the reason why a post needs to be closed without reading the entire thing, I can review faster. –  Bill the Lizard Aug 9 '13 at 17:34
    
Strongly related. These two requests need to go hand in hand, otherwise it becomes impossible to validly flag a post as off topic if there isn't an appropriate canned reason. –  Esoteric Screen Name Aug 9 '13 at 18:32
    
+1, I wrote up something very related to this here: meta.stackexchange.com/a/199627/131453 –  devuxer Oct 5 '13 at 23:07

The existing votes are (and always have been) available on the close dialog that appears:

but yes: I can see how it may be very useful to know what the votes are before you decide to click a button. Consequently, from the next build, this information will be available to you! Since the reasons are in many cases quite verbose (and there is no "short form"), they are shown in the "more..." area:

If multiple reasons have been suggested, they will be displayed separately in the "more" area.

Because we care.

What if there is more than one reason chosen? –  Shadow Wizard Oct 24 '13 at 11:25
    
@ShaWizDowArd see the edit a few moments ago. That worked fine before and after I tweaked it for the newer screenshot - it is just a bit clearer now. –  Marc Gravell Oct 24 '13 at 11:25
    
Good job, looks like you do care! :) –  Shadow Wizard Oct 24 '13 at 11:46
    
Thanks for caring! –  HaskellElephant Oct 24 '13 at 12:50
