I'm no longer seeing the option to vote to close a question since the site opened to the public, has the rep needed for this increased now ?


Yes, according to the FAQ, it appears so. It makes sense since the site is now open to the public.

    Hah, yes I should've checked the FAQ. Quite a way to go to get the 3000 rep needed to vote to close

  • Of course now no one (except the few moderators, aka Stack Overflow employees) can close a question. Jul 8 '10 at 4:18

I agree. We have relaxed the reputation requirements for the duration of the public beta.

See https://webapps.stackexchange.com/faq for the current rep values.
