I can't delete my own question.

After reading this question

How does deleting work? What can cause a post to be deleted, and what does that actually mean? What are the criteria for deletion?

I assume, that it's because the question has more than 2 answers and more than 2 votes and maybe because it is popular question.

So I found this question

Should delete votes be limited like close votes?

It's needed 1 vote of deletion for every 20 votes of the question + 3 botes votes. The question has 26 votes at this moment, so I consider we need 5 votes for deletion. At this moment there are 7 votes and it's not enough.

My question's are:

1) How much votes is left?

2) Can I see my own deleted questions?

Thank you.

P.S. Maybe I misunderstood something or didn't pay attention to some information in faq. If so just point me the right link.

Actually, it's 1 delete vote for every 20 votes on the question or any of its answers... The total number of such votes is currently 159, making the number of delete votes required 7+3=10.

share|improve this answer do you get the 159? Is there any way to count it automatically? – hgulyan Jun 11 '10 at 5:51
If there is, I don't know about it. Just scrolled and started summing... So yeah, might be off. – Shog9 Jun 11 '10 at 5:54
It's definitely 159. And my vote doesn't count in any case, right? – hgulyan Jun 11 '10 at 5:54
It should... If it lets you vote. Not sure how that all works at present. – Shog9 Jun 11 '10 at 5:55
It says, too many existing answers or/and accepted uptoved/accepted answers – hgulyan Jun 11 '10 at 5:59
Ok. Might want to just flag for a moderator's attention then. – Shog9 Jun 11 '10 at 6:00
Ok, thanks, flagged it. And what about to be able to see your own deleted question. Is there any possibility? – hgulyan Jun 11 '10 at 6:04
@hgulyan: once you have >= 10K reputation points, you'll be able to see it (assuming you kept a link - it won't appear in your profile). 'Til then, you're best off saving it somewhere else... – Shog9 Jun 11 '10 at 6:14
I have it on my computer and after(if) I'll get to 10k, I won't even remember about my question. – hgulyan Jun 11 '10 at 6:16

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.

"I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid can't do that.

Sorry... couldn't resist.
