According to the view close votes privilege page you can view close votes on your own question and vote to close/reopen your own questions with 250 reputation.

Nowhere does it state whether you can view reopen votes on your own question. Can you?

If you can this privilege page should be updated.

  • Most likely you can, we need account with 251-2999 rep to test. :) – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Apr 21 '13 at 13:10
  • I have one of those @Sha. The problem is that you also need a closed question with at least one reopen vote :-). – ben is uǝq backwards Apr 21 '13 at 13:11
  • Easy! Flag --> Other --> "Please close for test purpose" --> Chat --> ask 3K+ member to cast a reopen vote. :) – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Apr 21 '13 at 13:12
  • I'd want the other reopen votes guaranteed as well! – ben is uǝq backwards Apr 21 '13 at 13:15
  • 1
    Well, you'll have to take the risk. :D – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Apr 21 '13 at 13:16
  • That's what prompted the question @Mat. She asked if there were any tools that allowed her to see how close the question was to being reopened... – ben is uǝq backwards Apr 21 '13 at 14:10

Yes, you can "view" reopen votes, or what there is to view of them. Unlike close votes, voting to reopen is just a matter of clicking the link and confirming. There's really nothing to view there other than the number of reopen votes currently on the question.

When you vote to close, however, you are presented with a dialog which lets you see how many votes each close reason currently has, which is what the privilege is referring to. You can also still see the number of votes in the link, similar to reopen votes.

As long as you can cast a close or reopen vote on the question, you will see the count next to it (unless there's currently zero votes).

  • Cool beans... makes sense. Now, having volunteered, how are you going to put that into the privilege pages :-)? – ben is uǝq backwards Apr 21 '13 at 14:51
  • @benisuǝqbackwards: There's not really anything I could do. The privilege itself is named "view close votes" in the side bar - so if that's the part you're complaining about, users can't change the title. You'd have to bug a dev if you really want it changed. Honestly, most of that information can probably be duplicated from the full close/reopen privilege page. – animuson Apr 21 '13 at 14:53
