I can no longer close questions with simply my vote.

Previously I could close photoshop and Illustrator tagged questions with one vote because I have the gold badge for the and tags.

Has this ability been removed?

Fine either way.. just noticed the change in behavior today.

  • Was it a duplicate that you tried to close? I think the power only works for duplicates, right? – JohnB Sep 23 '14 at 23:52
  • Okay.. so thanks for pointing out how clueless I am at times John :) – Scott Sep 23 '14 at 23:54

    Tempting to tag this as featured to further rub it in... – JohnB Sep 24 '14 at 0:36

It's a dupehammer, not a generic closehammer. Gold badgers have extra weight when voting on dupes only.

  • Yup.. John just pointed that out as well. thanks. I'd have deleted this question... but... not with an answer :) – Scott Sep 23 '14 at 23:54
  • "dupehammer" and "closehammer." I love tools with such deliciously descriptive names. :) – Lauren-Clear-Monica-Ipsum Oct 3 '14 at 20:48
