I'd like to play around with the close vote review data to do some basic analysis. Can the review data from the close vote queue please be made public?

User IDs should be included in the data dump, as they are available anyway. The reason I'd like username data to be there is because I want to look at the trend in number of reviews per reviewer over time (and a couple other things); doing so would be impossible without username data.

    The username data is public anyway... I don't see that it would be a problem to add it in. – ben is uǝq backwards Nov 24 '13 at 19:45
  • The only time it's not public is for close votes that don't result in an action. If only four people vote, their names are not released. Only once the question is closed does that information become public. At that point I don't think there's a good reason to withhold that from the data dump. – Pollyanna Nov 24 '13 at 19:50

    I would argue that the user IDs should be exposed. There is no anonymity in review. – animuson Nov 24 '13 at 19:51
  • Fair points, all. I'll change the proposal. – user206222 Nov 24 '13 at 19:56

    @AnnaLear indicated it's possible, in a recent answer. – Andrew Cheong Nov 24 '13 at 20:14

    @psubsee2003 - I think it should stay open, actually. `@AnnaLear was answering as an aside on an unrelated question, i.e. users searching for info on close vote review data wouldn't necessarily click on a question about missing close votes data to expect their answer. Maybe we'll get more details in this thread too. – Andrew Cheong Nov 24 '13 at 20:24
  • @acheong87 agreed, which is why I didn't actually vote to close. – psubsee2003 Nov 24 '13 at 20:29
  • Well, what I meant was available for download, like a data dump, but I suppose DE works as well. – user206222 Nov 24 '13 at 20:46
  • @Emracool I missed "data dump" in your question for some reason. But I suspect the reason they aren't there is the same as they aren't in DE. – psubsee2003 Nov 24 '13 at 20:50
