There was a duplicate question asked earlier today, so I thought of closing the question, but in the close popup already two other users voted to close as unclear.

Still I went ahead and closed it as duplicate question. Now it is showing:

marked as duplicate by davidism, Shadow, VR46

But I am the only one who closed it as duplicate. Is this the way it works or is something wrong here?

  • Yes, this is how it works. I swear this question has been asked before but I can't find it... Jan 5, 2016 at 2:32
  • Shouldn't this be changed Jan 5, 2016 at 2:46
  • 4

  • Possibly. I think it isn't a big deal, but it can get a little confusing sometimes (especially when one of the users has a gold tag badge). Jan 5, 2016 at 2:54
  • No need to break down and show... atleast dont show the users who didn't vote to close as duplicate when they vote to close as off-topic Jan 5, 2016 at 3:04
