As long as we don't have many hi-rep users, it is useful to have a place with list of candidates to close; at least it worked well on other betas.


  • Add a link to the candidate for closure in the top answer
  • Explanation of why it needs closing is optional
  • Delete it from the answer if you see that the question is closed

  • $\begingroup$ Well, we still don't have enough closevoters, even if we have high rep users. Till date I've seen maybe one question that was closed with 5 votes. The majority are closed by the ♦-binding-vote. I guess that's because there's no easy way for us non-mods to see which questions are being closevoted (is there?) Actually, I was thinking of using this in conjunction with cv-pls in chat.. [cv-pls] was rather controversial on SO, but our community is small enough for that not to happen IMO. $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Apr 2 '12 at 4:45
  • $\begingroup$ Really, there should be a tab in the review section for checking out questions with closevotes. $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Apr 2 '12 at 4:46

OK, apparently trivial answers are now automatically converted to comments by the software. So if you want to post a link here, instead of posting it as a separate answer, just add it to the following list. Once a question has been closed, edit it out.

If our chat room ever becomes more regularly active, we will move handling of close candidates there.
