Edit question


If we observe closely, we can find that in the case of my question, the names of the members, who opted for its closure, are not visible to me.

In the case of a question belongs to another member, the names of the members, who opted for its closure, are visible to me.

My question is, why the names of the members, who opted for closure of my question, are not visible to me?

    It is not just you. Even I can't see names of those who have voted to close my questions anymore. Seems like a new feature in SE – Carmen sandiego Aug 14 '20 at 9:59

According to a latest answer posted on Meta SE, to the author of a post, the names of the users who voted to close that post, won't be shown any longer.

That's why you are not being able to see which users closed your question.


The author actually no longer sees who voted to close their question in the post notice. They can still see them via the revision history or the timeline, though.


But, as indicated in that answer, you can still see the names of the users, through the revision link, provided your post was revised.

You can check this revision: https://hinduism.stackexchange.com/posts/42469/revisions

You can see the names then:

Post Closed as "Opinion-based" by Carmen sandiego, Swami Vishwananda, TheLittleNaruto, Marcello Miorelli, idol worshipper


If your post was not revised even once, then I think you need to resort to the timeline of that post.

The timeline of your question is given in the following link, from where you can also view which users closed the question.

    Just a clarification: the link to the revisions page exists for all posts even if they weren't edited. It's just that you will have to manually edit the URL to navigate to that page. See, for example this and this. – user9440 Aug 15 '20 at 2:52

Carmen and Rickross are right that it's due to recent feature change.

Orginally, it is the New Post Notices rollout feature announcement that was posted on MSE in Oct'19, followed by Blog in August'19.

Still the name of close voters were visible to post author. Yet another thread started for improving this feature and it was suggested to hide the name of close voters to the post authors, which has been by SE developers on July 22:

Update: We've changed the post notices for question askers so that they do not see the usernames of close voters listed - this includes askers with the close/reopen vote privilege.
