For questions and discussions about close-voting specifically. Not to be confused with [closed-questions].

At 3000 reputation, users gain the ability to vote to close a question, which prevents it from being answered until issues are fixed and it is reopened. Challenges are typically closed if:

  • they are too similar to an existing challenge or don't add anything new over an existing one
  • they are unclear, underspecified, lack a winning criterion, or are missing other necessary specifications
  • they are blatantly off-topic for Code Golf & Coding Challenges

This tag is for questions about voting to close, not closed questions in general.
