What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

On Stack Overflow, I read that users with a reputation of at least 250 can vote to close their own questions. Where is this option, and how do I use it?

You should be seeing a "close" link below your questions, between "edit" and "delete".

Unlike deleting your own questions - which happens immediately - a vote to close is just that. Four other users must also vote to close. Actually, that's not strictly true - a diamond moderator's vote is final.

Is that valid also when somebody else started the vote? I take that is not possible to vote for not closing the question, then. – kiamlaluno Jun 21 '10 at 16:31
@kiamlaluno - that's right. You can only vote to reopen once the question has been closed. Migrated questions stay migrated though. – ChrisF Jun 21 '10 at 16:34
