I voted to close/hold a question as "off topic", others voted for "unclear, what you are asking". Apparently I was the 5th and now I supposedly voted for "unclear" too. It's no big issue but it feels strange.

Is that on purpose or is it a bug?

Your vote was recorded correctly but most people voted for the reason given. To me that makes sense...

But I agree, it's different from past behaviour.

  • I agree that the close reason given should be the one the majority gave. I don't want to press another reason - it looks just strange to see my name there when I deliberately chose another reason :-)

  • Ummm... but when everybody votes OT each of the voters, has it's name besides the reason... apparently this doesn't happen with other close reasons...

  • @Braiam Yeah, that's only for OT.
