Question: Do moderators receive any sort of notification when a vote to close is submitted by a user with 3000+ reputation?
It appears that if a user with 3000+ chooses to flag and picks "doesn't belong here", then, instead of flagging, the software instead will "automatically" submit a vote to close.
Now, on many SE sites, this will work just fine and is probably the preferred behavior. However, on smallish sites, like stats.SE, where there are only 13 users with 3K+ rep (and at least one of them is MIA), this behavior seems less desirable.
In essence, it is virtually impossible to gather the five necessary votes to close, even if the question is indisputably and unboundedly bad.
One can also "flag" a question surreptitiously by choosing "other" under "needs moderator attention" or something similar. But, I don't want to annoy the moderators with two notifications where one will suffice. Hence, my question.
