I've found strange behavior when closing this question - I definitely see that there are 3 closing votes and 2 of them are at "Off-topic" section: enter image description here

-but there are no explanations on section itself: enter image description here

-while, normally, it's expected that it will appear. In custom comments section there are also no closing-votes displayed.

Perhaps it's just my browser (which is FF 26 x64 under Win) - so marking this as a "possible bug". Thank you for your attention.

    wontfix sounds more appropriate than bydesign... Was there really a conscious design decision to just hide the votes? :P

Two of the specific offtopic reasons, namely the "minimal understanding" and the "describe specific problem" close reasons were removed. (See this post for details.) There are still close votes for those reasons, you just can't see them.

This is the intended behavior.

  • Thank you, I didn't know that. Now all is clear.
