I just agreed with a duplicate suggestion for one of my questions. It's now showing that it was closed as a duplicate by the person who raised the duplicate suggestion and Community. Since it was my yes this solves my problem click that triggered the closing/status change shouldn't I get credit instead?

  • Technical reason: since it's not actual close vote, and can be done with 1 rep, it's attributed to the Community account Commented Nov 18, 2015 at 19:10
  • If you mouse over "Community" in the list of close voters, you should get a blurb of text that says something to the effect that the Asker agreed with a Duplicate close reason.

Community user will always appear in the list if you've used the self-closing feature.

You appear in the list only when you vote to close using the close link (note that flagging for closure isn't counted as a close vote). So, to get the credit (though this doesn't really matter?), you should've voted before clicking "this solved my problem".

    OK, I don't like it; but I see it's been thoroughly argued at the time of implementation. Commented Nov 18, 2015 at 19:08

    @Dan Neither do I, as expressed by answering that question (point one).
