In comments, a user with a rep of 827 said he didn't see the close link under a question. But in the FAQ it says

250 Vote to close, reopen, or migrate your questions

Is the FAQ wrong? Is that close link being hidden by mistake?

Could you link the instance you're referring to? As far as I know, this still works as it should, so it is likely that there is something specific to the question or user at hand that is the cause of this. – Grace Note Mar 18 '11 at 15:11
Nevermind, found the user - you're referring to this question, correct? Searching through your own comment history probably would've been a lot faster than searching through all of the users with 827 reputation (which are page 442-443, for the curious). – Grace Note Mar 18 '11 at 15:23
you trust an 827 rep user more than OUR GLORIOUS FAQ? For shame. For shame! – Jeff Atwood Mar 19 '11 at 3:40

The user with 827 should not see a close link under a question. Unless it is their own.

  • 250 Vote to close, reopen, or migrate your questions
  • 1000 Show total up and down vote counts
  • 3000 Vote to close, reopen, or migrate any questions

This is the answer. The user who asked about the closing is not the person who asked the question, which means 3000 reputation is needed. – Grace Note Mar 18 '11 at 15:26
I don't reading comprehension much. – Won't Mar 18 '11 at 15:29

Was it his own question, or someone elses? Or perhaps it was a question he posted under a different account and he needs them merged.

Gotta love the somewhere-between-reasonable-and-wild speculation that takes place when there aren't enough details. – Pops Mar 18 '11 at 15:14
