It's no secret that the user base and active user base as declined over the past years. At all times, we had significanly less users to help manage the site than we get on Stack Overflow.

Yet, the amount of votes required to close a question is still five, just like it was on SO. To push it further, SO lowered the threshold from five to three at the end of last year.

WebApps got through a similar process.

In order to help improve the quality on the site, if StackExchange ever gives us the possibility, do we want to try and lower the threshold to three votes needed to close/reopen a question?


There is no guarantee that SE will do this for us, as far as I'm aware, but it's worth to try and let the CM team know we are interested.
