What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm curious about how well I judge worthy questions in comparison to the rest of the community. How can I get a count of how many questions I have voted to close or delete, and how many of those questions have stayed closed/deleted vs. those that have been reversed? Am I an active closer compared to eligible users at large? (Probably, simply because I close at least a few every day and am aware enough to ask the question.)

Questions that have been reopened do not show that they have been closed, unless I try to close it again and I'm informed that I cannot vote to close again. It would appear that a question timeline doesn't display a close event, let alone a re-open event. My understanding is that questions that have been closed and then re-opened are not shown as such in the data dump, either.

i admit to being curious about the stats myself, but i'm not sure i really want to know. it's not something that should turn into a contest, which it would if stats were provided. –  quack quixote Feb 22 '10 at 23:44

re: wonkiness on reopened questions. i've noticed this too, but it's a separate issue and really needs its own bug report. –  quack quixote Feb 22 '10 at 23:45

you should know that close and reopen votes which do not reach the threshold "age away" over time. –  Jeff Atwood Feb 23 '10 at 8:55

Questions that have been reopened do not show that they have been closed, unless I try to close it again and I'm informed that I cannot vote to close again. It would appear that a question timeline doesn't display a close event, let alone a re-open event. My understanding is that questions that have been closed and then re-opened are not shown as such in the data dump, either.

What? The full open and close history is shown in revision history for the question itself.

The timeline view is still experimental and frankly quite buggy. It should not be used as an official reference for, well, anything.

edit: quoted the relevant section I was responding to. The bold sentence is not correct; the question revision history does indeed contain all close and reopen events, along with what users were involved in said events.

What? He's talking about per-user statistics, not per-question statistics. –  Jon Seigel Feb 22 '10 at 14:12

@jon see my edit. I was responding to the second half. This is the problem with "questions" that have multiple sub-questions.. –  Jeff Atwood Feb 23 '10 at 8:54
