I originally posted this on UserVoice, but I'm moving it here.

It is somewhat annoying when you close a question, but are not the last person closing it, that the official close reason doesn't necessarily match the reason you've chosen. I'd like to be able to see the reason that each voter has chosen in addition to the official close reason.

If the reason was kept along with the close vote (a FK to the reasons table wouldn't take much space), then it could be provided as a hover over on the person's name when the close message is shown.

I like it that you suggest a hover, it wouldn't take up space in the UI, kinda like the net votes thingy on posts


Perhaps there should be an official reason, and a separator, footnote+ indicator, or other distinguishing mark to indicate that you can hover over other names.
