I think it would be useful for the OP (not everyone) to see close reasons when close votes are present on their question, regardless of the OP's reputation.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

One of the best ideas I've heard on meta. +1 – Dynamo Mar 3 '10 at 17:51
@squillman - not a dup... This questions asks that the OP be able to see the close votes on his/her question. The cited dup does not have that restriction. Its materially different and changes the request. – jww Apr 24 at 2:08

Good suggestion! I think many OP's would preemptively fix their questions to address the close-reasons before the question gets closed. This would result in less people being frustrated over closed questions, and quicker reopen-votes too, IMHO.

It could also show them that their question might really be inappropriate for the site so they could close it themselves and save the mods some time. I like this idea. – Dynamo Mar 3 '10 at 17:52
@Dynamo: Good point, too. – Sampson Mar 3 '10 at 17:54
