Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Would it be possible to add close/reopen vote information to the questions object?

For example, you usually see something along the lines of:

close (3)

when a question has three (current) close-votes. Can we get access to this in the API, maybe display the number of close-votes and possibly the types suggested (i.e. Not Constructive, Not a Real Question, etc).

I also would like to see this implemented. It would even be better if you would allow us to do close vote using the API. –  PeeHaa Mar 3 '12 at 16:12
    
@PeeHaa I believe write access will be allowed in a future version of the API, not just yet. –  Marvin Pinto Mar 3 '12 at 16:16

I'll slot this in for v2.1, not super useful in general but definitely interesting information that we should make available.

Wait - v2.1? - would it be possible to get a brief summary of what that will include? –  Nathan Osman Mar 12 '12 at 5:25
    
@George - no, it's just in the "writing things down to remember to include" stage not an active development one. –  Kevin Montrose Mar 12 '12 at 5:28
    
But it's safe to assume that it will not support writing data (scheduled for v3.0), correct? –  Nathan Osman Mar 12 '12 at 5:48
    
@George - eh, 2.1 may become 3.0 (with implied write access); depends on scheduling, available resources, and what not. Far too early to say definitively. –  Kevin Montrose Mar 12 '12 at 6:01
