Today, I was in the interesting situation of closing my own meta question as off-topic (don't ask) and discovered that instead of the Edit question button I expected, there was only a Delete question button (screen-grab of post notice). The absence of the edit button would appear to be because I closed it (though that's not documented here), but the delete button was somewhat unexpected as the (mod-only) page for editing these (/admin/flags/site-specific-close-reasons) doesn't show that button.

For reference, this is what's shown on the mod page (ignore the width; the mod page doesn't have a right sidebar):

Wheras this is what's shown when someone else closes your post:

This isn't a big deal, but it would be better if the example for mods was accurate. We probably aren't in the business of having our questions closed often enough to make any necessary mental adjustment.
