There's like 5 in the top few of the front page and it's a little annoying as they get in the way so can a mod just delete them they serve no useful purpose.

  • Or just bringing down the rep required to close questions seeing as this site is unique in that rep is not a key part (eg low acceptance is pretty unavoidable)

  • Anyone can vote to close. Maybe we need to make all users with >5k rep. have the ability to cast 'total' close votes which instantly close the question. (I can't remember the word for that.) Dec 27, 2010 at 1:11

    @George: No, you have to have a rep of 3000 to vote to close. Dec 27, 2010 at 2:00
  • @Dennis: Sorry, I meant that anyone with 3k rep. can close. Dec 27, 2010 at 5:14

  • I can't vote to close unless I'm missing something? Mod tools require 10k rep. I guess we could elect someone as a mod ourselves, get them to post a question and upvote it, and have them answer that question and upvote the answers until they reach 10k.
