I have just asked 4 questions here, and thanks to other members two of them were received very well.
Now I have surpassed 500 reputations and I have received a new privilege "Casting close & reopen votes".
But is 500 reputations enough so that this privilege is granted? I mean I am still new here and I have to be experienced more in asking good questions (one of my questions isn't received very well). In other words, how can a member who isn't experienced enough yet, know and decide which post deserves a close?
In contrast, I have a reputation of 609 in English language learners SE, but I haven't been granted this privilege yet there.
I personally think that the privilege of splitting the score should be prior to casting close votes.
