We had some discussion about quality question and closing question that are not well researched and are not clear or too broad. I found the following recent question which got -2 votes and I am not sure what the OP is asking. What it is not closed?


Can a moderator explain what the OP is asking for?


Simple answer: It wasn't closed because nobody cast close votes on it.

If you want a question closed, you need to at least vote to close it (or, if you lack sufficient reputation to cast a close vote, flag it for closure).

It's closed now.

  • So the moderators close questions only if they have close votes?

    Moderators shouldn't even have to close questions except in exceptional situations; close votes should close questions.

  • That does not answer my question. I have seen question closed by moderators only. Having 2k points I can see close votes. Do moderators close questions directly just because they are bad questions?

  • That is an entirely different question, which should be asked separately.
