Related to the discussion How can we get more trusted users available to review close votes?, I motion that we should have the close vote threshold lowered from 5 to 3. With the lower threshold we could have off-topic questions closed faster and not have the cast votes age away for nothing. This has already been done in SO.

Vote up for yay, down for nay.

    Btw I've just went through the close vote queue, and a lot of them were at 3 or 4 votes. So I think this will really benefit this stack. Of the 20 questions probably more than 50% would already have been closed with the lower threshold. – kero Mar 23 at 11:41

    I'm on board. It's a pain seeing a clearly off topic question hang around for days or weeks due to lack of votes, when the user could benefit from knowing that they're not likely to get an answer sooner. – Jacob Peattie Mar 25 at 12:40
