There was a question that was closed as an exact duplicate back in Jan 12, 2012 : What is the right time to use an ENUM versus a normalized types table in MySQL?

My answer to this Question was just upvoted at 2012-06-18 22:10:47 UTC.

Am I allowed to receive upvotes to my answer when it is part of a Closed Question?

Yes. There's nothing that prohibits submitted answers from getting upvotes, unless they are locked (I think that stops upvotes), deleted, or CW. The deleted part should be self-explanatory.

Closing as a dupe (or for whatever other reason) still allows your answer to be marked as accepted, upvoted, and edited.
