My this question is no longer in the scope since the service has become obsolete. So, I just found that someone has already voted to close the question as off-topic with good reason:

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it can no longer be reproduced. The encrypted.google.com site no longer exists. – forest 20 mins ago

Now, I agree with the reason and want to vote for closing on that reason but I am not finding a way to do this. I'm not having close button yet and flag button doesn't include that feature I think. Also there is no button like "That's solved my problem" as we find in the case of closing as duplicate:

So-that community user can close the question automatically.

Now, how do I approach for self-closing my own question? Should I consider to use custom flag for mods?

Once you have 250 rep you will be able to do this. From the privileges page:

View Close Votes Privilege Type: Moderation Privilege

Awarded At: 250 Reputation

This privilege allows you to view and cast close and reopen votes on your own questions


As stated by Rory Alsop, users with 250 rep can vote to close your own question. Note that even if users self-vote their questions to be closed, it will be just another vote; it still won't be binding. (Only duplicate votes by gold badgers and all votes by mods are binding)

However, the alternative option is to delete your question as a courtesy for cleaning up, especially since it doesn't have any answers yet and obsolete/unanswerable at the same time.
