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

I asked the same question on Stack Overflow and Statistics Stack Exchange not knowing it will be duplicate.

I want to delete one of them but I don't know how to do it. What should I do? Can I delete my own question? If it's possible how can I do it?

There is a delete link at the bottom of your question, just near share, edit and flag.

thank you so much . is this link delete my question immediately or is this just a vote to delete the question and will delete it later ? – Bahareh LV Jan 8 '13 at 0:13
I never deleted one of my questions, but it looks like you are going to do it soon! Keep us informed. – Stéphane Bruckert Jan 8 '13 at 0:16
yes I want to delete it immediately . I choose that link and a frame opened which said vote to delete . I think this link will gain delete votes . but anyway thank you so much for your guidance . whether it will be deleted immediately or be deleted soon ; my problem is solved . – Bahareh LV Jan 8 '13 at 0:26
I checked it again this link will delete your own question immediately . my question is deleted now . thanks to you @Stéphane Bruckert – Bahareh LV Jan 8 '13 at 0:29
hi, your answer could be more complete, for example if it included what happen when you can't delete your question via this link, etc – ajax333221 Jan 8 '13 at 0:47
guys I think this link won't delete the closed questions . It just delete open ones . – Bahareh LV Jan 8 '13 at 1:01
@BaharehLV As the post author, your delete vote is binding, and thus results in immediate deletion - if you have the right to delete the post. You don't have the right to delete questions that have an upvoted answer, you don't have the right to delete an answer of yours if it is accepted. I'm not sure, but I think you can only delete a closed question after two days. – Daniel Fischer Jan 8 '13 at 1:18
@ Daniel Fischer thank you so much . I think you are right . so I should try to delete closed questions after 2 days . – Bahareh LV Jan 8 '13 at 1:34
