What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

The Peer Pressure badge is awarded if you delete your own post with a score of -3 or less. The Disciplined badge is awarded if you delete your own post with a score of 3 or more.

My question is, how do you delete your own post? I can vote for the deletion of my own questions, but I can't delete them outright as Stack Overflow doesn't seem to let you do that.

Any ideas?

My question is... how do you delete your own post? I can vote my own questions for deletion but I can't delete them outright as stackoverflow doesn't seem to let you do that.

You can delete any answer at any time, without needing votes. It is by design that a question cannot be deleted at a whim by the person who posted it (if it has at least one answer with a score of +1).

So while you could, in theory, get the badge for deleting an answer-less question with a score of +/-3, the badge is generally geared towards answers.
