Is the Robotics community interested in having the Close and Reopen vote threshold lowered to 3, rather than the standard 5. They made this change permanent on Stack Overflow and it has been working well for them.

If anything, it would be more valuable as a change here, since we have so few people actively voting to close and reopen questions. At the moment, there are fewer than 100 people who have the 500 rep currently needed to cast close and reopen votes and few people are exercising that privilege. I very rarely see more than one vote to close on a post before I deal with it, and frequently need to use the other review queues to find questions which should be closed, as they simply haven't attracted any close votes.

If there is a consensus that we should do this, then I will make a request for the threshold to be changed.

I agree. I think 3 makes more sense for our community.
