What exactly happens with the new “Do Not Close”?

What happens when you click the "Leave Open" button when reviewing close votes? I expect I should already know this somewhow, but I haven't seen it. Does it count as a vote against votes-to-close?

  • I had already read where it says, "it takes 3 'Leave Open' votes to take effect." Does "take effect" mean reopen or invalid a vote-to-close? Did I miss something else?

  • It's explained clearly in this answer. :) Nov 11, 2012 at 23:21
  • Thank you. A search for "Leave Open" does not find that question, even though it is an "exact duplicate".

  • That's because the button's text was changed. Nov 12, 2012 at 7:27
  • I understand. Maybe the exact duplicate could be edited so searches for "leave open" will find it.
