- How Do I Opt Out of Privileges? 5 answers
I have gold tag badges only on Sci-fi & Fantasy Stack Exchange, which I mostly refrain from using due to my tendency to avoid the arguments which nearly always occur when one user hammers a question instead of a community consensus via a review (unless I am up for an argument, which is very rare).
But yesterday, on Stack Overflow, I noticed something different. The fourth voter there holds a gold badge in the iOS tag. Yet, the question wasn't closed until it got a fifth vote. So that got me thinking: Is it possible for TGB holders to take off their golden hat and vote as a normal user? Or do gold-badge closing privileges vary based on where they are coming for i.e. A review requiring five people to agree, irrelevant to the badges they hold while a direct close vote outside the review queue would instantly close the post?
If they can take off the golden hat, how does one do that?
