Shortly after π-day 2015 was first posted, it was closed by Daniel Fischer, a moderator, as “too broad”. Normally five users’ votes are required to close a question, but when a moderator votes to close, as in this case, the question is closed instantly. In this case Daniel Fischer’s vote was the only one.
I am only curious to know whether the moderators discussed and agreed on the closure ahead of time, or if Daniel Fischer acted alone. I would also be interested to know what the moderators’ usual procedure is in cases like this.
I am not contesting, criticizing, or even complaining about this closure. Nor am I asking why it was closed.
I hope that the moderators will take this question as it was intended, purely as a request for information about moderator practices, and not suspect that I have any further motive, because I have none.
