As it stands now, the View Close Votes Priv is granted at 250 Rep. That privilege includes the ability to cast close, open, and migration votes on your own questions. While it makes sense to limit votes on own questions to 250+, new users should have the ability to view close votes on their own questions.
- Leave casting votes to close, reopen, or migrate on own questions as a 250 rep priv
- Immediately be able to view close votes on own questions as a 1 rep user
- Have a notification (that can be turned off but is on by default) which would alert the user if a close vote has been cast on their post.
