Take a look at this question. It looks like the following scenario happened:

  • User votes to close a question
  • User gains moderator privileges
  • User votes to close again, probably forgetting that they already voted to close
  • Question is closed via moderator super vote

Is this a bug? I would think the system would have just said "You have already voted to close this question - are you sure?", or at least combined the votes.

    It would be nice if I could have seen that I'd already voted to close. If it was there I didn't see it. It would have affected my decision to close-vote again (only two other people though it was close-worthy, not three). A couple days later, in hindsight, I probably should have un-closed the question when I saw what happened. – JasonBirch Aug 3 '10 at 21:50
  • @Jason - I re-opened it and closed it again, so at least it doesn't show you closing it twice. I hope the OP doesn't think we were picking on him :/ – Tim Post Aug 4 '10 at 8:45

This is just too freakishly rare to even file as a bug IMO.
