I find it creepy that you put your question out there and as it percolates downwards due to newer questions, people maybe voting to close it, unbeknownst to you.

  • this is not about whether the reasons are correct. all reasons except obvious things like profanity are incorrect. the question is about process - someone needs to be notified for each vote to close their question or at least if and when it gets closed.

  • First, Stack Exchange is not a Democracy. We will be notified when it is voted to close as duplicate, But for other reasons, we have to keep track of what is happening with our question. It is our question after all ;) . This is a proposal which should be discussed on network level and was asked already for close reasons. Adding for vote to close would be bad because they can be false positives too. Feb 13, 2018 at 15:35

    I find that annoying too. Sometimes I only find out that one of my questions has been closed months after the fact (especially on SE sites I don't visit that much). But this is a network-wide feature of the system, so this question is better asked on Main Meta.SE. Feb 13, 2018 at 16:08
