If a diamond Moderator uses the Close Votes review queue and chooses "Leave open", what happens?

  • Does their vote count as just one of several that might kick the question out of the queue, or does it get kicked out right away?
  • If the question is removed from the queue right away, are all of the other close votes dismissed, or do they stay?

It's clear what happens if the Moderator chooses "Close"; it's a binding close vote, just like if they vote to close from elsewhere. It's less clear what happens if they go the other way.

Does their vote count as just one of several that might kick the question out of the queue, or does it get kicked out right away?

The question is removed from the queue immediately.

If the question is removed from the queue right away, are all of the other close votes dismissed, or do they stay?

The close votes stay, but they start aging away.
