I've recently gained the close voting privilege. I was looking over my flag history for questions I'd flagged which both didn't get closed and didn't get fixed, and I've found a few. The flags were both marked as helpful and unhelpful.
But when I go to those questions I can't vote to close them as it says "You have already flagged this question for closure". Does this mean I will never be able to vote to close on these questions again? If so why?
If this is the case it seems quite problematic to me because it means a mod can unilaterally take away my voting rights on those questions with no explanation. I have no problem with mods insta-closing or reopening, as those actions can be reverted later on. I also have no expectation that my intuitions as to what is too broad or opinion-based line up with the community's consensus either - that's what makes the voting system good because it does take agreement to close these questions when each person can only get 20% there. But if I'm prevented from voting because I flagged in the past then I can't put my 20% opinion out there (even if sometimes it's going to be the only vote) - it will forever be 0%.
