Consider a user who does not have at least 3K rep (such as me right now), which I call a -3K user.
I just browsed the reopen votes for a question of myself. And this is what was shown (user IDs intentionally changed in my question here to
UserX, X = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, similar for timestamps):
Imins ago: Leave Closed
Jmins ago: Leave Closed
Xhours ago: Reopen
Yhours ago: Leave Closed
Zhours ago: Reopen
Remark: the above tells me that (eg) User3 voted to reopen this question, and looking at the consolidated report about all such votes for all those 5 users, is what appears to me like I'm "browsing (a report) about how each user voted (to reopen or to leave closed) as part of this review.". For short, let me call this, in the context of this question, "
browsing the votes" (related to a specific reopen process). Obviously, this kind of votes have nothing to do with upvoting or downvoting posts.
If I try to browse the reopen votes of another question (not mine), I get similar results.
If I visit the history tab on the reopen review page, all I get is this message:
You have not reviewed any reopen votes yet.
That must be because I (as a -3K user) don't have enough rep for such reviews, so that seems OK to me.
Similar experiments about browsing close votes lead to similar access.
Is it OK for a -3K user to be able to browse reopen/close votes? Or is this rather to be considered as an undocumented feature (aka bug)?
