Can I close my question only the answer remaining on the page that voters could not vote on the post?

    I hate that attitude: "My problem is solved, so the question can go away now." Your question might be useful to other people who use similar search terms. Mar 23, 2013 at 3:40

    You mean you want to delete the question; it is already closed. Well, tough. (1) The people that answered it might deserve their positive rep, (2) Your question might help the next guy with his search. (3) The negative votes should serve you as a reminder of the importance of doing even a little digging before asking -- although that can be harder for newbies and ESL users. Mar 23, 2013 at 3:48

    Please do not deface your question here. You asked a question and got an answer. Meta votes express disagreement with an idea, not a judgement on quality of this question itself.

Your question is already closed as a duplicate.

But generally if you like to close a question you can flag it for closure or if you have enough reputation (3k+) you can cast a close vote.

You cannot delete your question if it has answers with positive score.

    It is closed. Closed means you can't add new answers, but still downvote.

    @C-Link The comments on your question seem to provide a reasonable explanation for the downvotes.

  • undelete your deleted question / downvoted question and improve them Mar 23, 2013 at 3:42

As the downvote tooltip says, one of the reasons for downvoting is that the question "does not show any research effort". Since your question is a duplicate of another question, it shows that you didn't do significative previous research.

BTW, please refrain from your editing practice of replacing all the content with a one-line comment. It is difficult to see what you had asked before.


Your question is duplicate of css id vs class and already closed .. its always good to do some search hefore posting questiin

And closing doesn't mean that vote on post is locked and also you can not delete closed question
