Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 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
