I was looking at this question that has been closed and reopen a countless amount of times (I'm sure many of you are familiar with it), and I couldn't help but notice close (1).

So I clicked it (not because I wanted to close it, I just wanted to look at the proposed close reason) and it said 12 votes remaining:

Is this a new feature? If yes what's the exact formula to calculate the amount of close votes needed?

(I hope this isn't a duplicate, I promise I searched and looked at the blog too)

    This is a hidden feature request: Make it "You have ____ votes remaining". – Pekka Feb 14 '10 at 0:00

I believe it's related to this question. You only have 12 closing vote per day, and now, it is shown how many you have left in this box.


That's the number of close votes you still have. Nothing to do with the 5 close votes per question limit.
