I voted to close this question since it is asking for game recommendations. However, I also wanted to leave a comment linking the asker to suggestions for sites that allow recommendations. I wanted to use the link that was in the dialog I saw when I was voting to close, so I retracted my vote so I could revote to close and copy that link. However, I can't revote to close because I have already voted to close.

Should the site have "forgotten" about my first close vote since I retracted my vote? Or do we intentionally not allow people to "vote to close -> retract -> vote to close again"?

This is intended. Once you retract a close vote, you cannot cast another vote to close. See this meta post from when close vote retraction was originally implemented.

  • It also says that you can revote again after the retraction ages away. Can you confirm that please?

  • @ExpertCoder14 That should be correct, but doesn't usually come up. That just means that a retracted close vote can be cast again after close votes expire, the same way a cast close vote can be cast again after votes expire. Close votes expire after 14 days.
