Currently only 8 users can vote to close and a question needs 5 votes to be closed.

Is there a way to quickly see which questions have a high number of close votes (let's say, 2 or 3) so that you can help out on questions (off course if you agree)?

  • $\begingroup$ I also think that min(1/3*#of user able to closevote, 5) would be enough votes for a question to close. $\endgroup$ – Peter Smit Jul 29 '10 at 11:56

I've just found this answer on SO. Basically, once you get 10K rep you get super ninja tools. However, this doesn't help a new beta site.

I presume that moderators will also get access to these tools (regardless of rep).

  • $\begingroup$ On this site only 2k is needed... still this is a lot. Moderator election will be done in 2-3 weeks after the public beta. $\endgroup$ – user88 Jul 29 '10 at 16:09
  • $\begingroup$ That's correct...I have those tools on stackoverflow and they give you many different list to help with this. $\endgroup$ – Shane Jul 29 '10 at 17:12

At least till we get temporary moderators we should consider open a thread on meta to debate closing questions. Perhaps, each answer to the question will be about a qn that we think should be closed and we can use the comments to debate the pros and cons.

  • $\begingroup$ If we do that, we should deleted answers when a particular question is closed. Otherwise, the numbers of answers will explode. $\endgroup$ – csgillespie Jul 29 '10 at 13:20
  • $\begingroup$ I am not sure if deleting answers is good as it hinders transparency. In any case, this is a temporary fix and we can close the meta thread once we have moderators. $\endgroup$ – svadali Jul 29 '10 at 13:27

  • $\begingroup$ You can sort answers by date, so the old ones will locate at the end of the list and won't be disturbing. There are oldest | newest | votes tabs next to the N Answers header. $\endgroup$ – user88 Jul 29 '10 at 19:18
