I don't have 20k rep, yet today I noticed the delete option on a question.

According to the Trusted User privileges, I shouldn't have this functionality yet.

  • Voting to delete answers with score of -1 or lower
  • Voting to undelete answers except those deleted by a moderator
  • Voting to delete questions immediately after they are closed (even if they are new)
  • Editing tag wikis without needing approval

I thought the vote to delete privilege doesn't start until 20k?

Only if the question has been closed for less than 2 days can < 20ks not cast delete votes on questions. –  Mysticial Apr 24 '13 at 1:25

Vote to delete starts with 10k+ rep privileges.*

You must wait for a question to be closed for 2 days before you can vote for deletion.

With 20k+ rep you can also

  • Vote to delete answers with score of -1 or lower
  • Vote to undelete answers except those deleted by a moderator
  • Vote to delete questions immediately after they are closed (if they're scored -3 or lower)

* See the description at the bottom of the page

I was under the impression this was only part of the moderation tool. What makes this different from the 20k privileges? Today was the first time I saw this option there. –  Kermit Apr 24 '13 at 1:26
    
@FreshPrinceOfSO The difference is just that with 20K+ rep the user doesn't have to wait. –  Shadow Wizard Apr 24 '13 at 14:38
