Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

As a 20k rep user, I can vote to delete questions, but I can't vote to delete my own questions.

For example, Do you trust code that works the first time? should be deleted, it doesn't belong on Stack Overflow.

I understand and am fine with not being able to one-click delete it since it has upvoted answers, but I should be able to cast a delete vote for it.

In other words, the rules that prevent one-click deletion by the owner should not supersede the vote-to-delete rules one has for normal posts.

Out of curiosity I wanted to know how isolated this is. I wrote this data.se query Closed Questions asked by user with the Trusted Privledge – Some Helpful Commenter Feb 10 '12 at 17:25

I agree with you totally. Not that I am a 20k+ rep owner. I think that if someone knows that he had asked the wrong question, he should be allowed to delete it. But it really has to be earned or it could be a problem for the community.
