If I've already voted to close a question, it would still be nice to see the details of others' votes — the suggested migration if it's being marked as off topic, or the suggested duplicate if it's being marked as an exact duplicate, for instance. Instead, I only see "You have already voted to close this question" and the overall category.

  • I just asked a question that got closed as a duplicate of this one. They're similar, and I think one answer/feature implementation could answer them both. I was asking because I wanted access to the off-topic sub-dialog though, not the duplicate subdialog. Nov 7, 2013 at 21:49
  • The duplicate subdialog is important, too, though, since not everyone that votes to close as a duplicate votes for the same duplicate, and people can remove their "possible duplicate of …" comments. Nov 7, 2013 at 21:50

It's great that they show the same close dialog, just with the button dimmed to show that you couldn't vote again. The counts show when you open that dialog, but it could be modified to show the breakdown of duplicate and off-topic votes.


The exact duplicate gets posted as a comment when that vote is made.

The vote counts are shown.

Why wouldn't you read the suggested migration when suggesting to migrate?

  • If I made the first close vote, it would be nice to see if other people are agreeing with me.

  • @jtbandes It would be nice if they mailed you a cheque, too, but what purpose would it serve? :P

    This. They are already shown. This information is all already available. The feature request is redundant. Aug 10, 2011 at 4:44

    @Cody: How are details for migration votes shown? Aug 13, 2011 at 18:47

    @CodyGray Not everyone that votes to close as a duplicate votes for the same duplicate, and users that vote to close as a duplicate can delete the comment that says "possible duplicate of …". Nov 7, 2013 at 21:47
