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

Weird scenario. I saw a very unclear question that already had a down vote. I thought I saw the name of the OP before, and clicked his name to look for familiar questions. Then, I pressed 'back' in the browser to return to the post, and pressed the 'Close' link.

The popup that should let you pick a reason now was empty with only the X to close it. After refreshing the page, the question appeared to be closed already. Usually this results in an orange popup telling you that it is closed already.

Alright, maybe not the most important bug to fix right away. Just figured I should report it. – GolezTrol Jan 22 '11 at 21:24
That is weird, indeed. Perhaps you loaded the question at the exact moment it was being closed.... Did you get a screenshot? – Pops Jan 22 '11 at 22:16
Yes, this happens when the question got closed just before you click Close. The close count you see is often stale. This worked properly before the update with a warning. – Uphill Luge Jan 22 '11 at 22:49

We'll fetch back down a message about the question now being closed and prompting the user to refresh the page.

It will go live in tomorrow's build.
