What happened to the indication 'just closed' for questions closed without chosing an answer?

am not sure this is the right place for this posting, but would like to know why the 'just closed' has been stopped and now questions closed without grading are just marked as 'closed'. Some people are over-using this feature and imho it would be helpful to see those questions mentioned as 'just closed'. I personally don't want to bother with askers who ask people for help and routinely 'close without grading'. if that's what they want to do, they now have the option of selecting 'no points' when they ask. I am only talking about people who close without grading quite often. Otherwise, I have no objections at all.

Hi Oct 3, 2005

The "just closed" questions still appear as just closed in the profile 'KudoZ tab' of the answerer, while they appear as closed in the profile 'KudoZ tab' of the asker. While it is quite normal to just close a question in case no helpful answer has been given, no one should over-use this function. If you feel anyone does, please contact a moderator.

Where answers have been supplied, have earned peer ‘agrees’ and would have been automatically awarded points if left to run, I do not feel that it is appropriate to leave the decision of ‘just closing’ to the asker . (I could post a link here to an answer that garnered seven peer agrees but was still rejected on the grounds of ‘no acceptable answer’.)
