Display close votes for all users

I think it would be useful for the OP (not everyone) to see close reasons when close votes are present on their question, regardless of the OP's reputation.

    @squillman - not a dup... This questions asks that the OP be able to see the close votes on his/her question. The cited dup does not have that restriction. Its materially different and changes the request.

Good suggestion! I think many OP's would preemptively fix their questions to address the close-reasons before the question gets closed. This would result in less people being frustrated over closed questions, and quicker reopen-votes too, IMHO.

    It could also show them that their question might really be inappropriate for the site so they could close it themselves and save the mods some time. I like this idea.
