I consider this question of mine badly shaped, so I flagged it to kindly ask for delete.

It was declined with reason None of the answers are upvoted, you can delete it yourself. However, I can't: a red box appears saying Sorry, this question has answers and cannot be deleted; flag it for moderator attention instead.

So I flagged it again, but it is still active since 15.2. I'd like to have it deleted, but it's no big deal: I'm just curious when can I delete my question.

    Strange. You should indeed be able to delete it.

  • I upvoted one of the comments. Could this be the reason?

    I'm fairly sure that the condition is actually "upvoted answer or more than one answer". Commented Feb 19, 2014 at 22:56

According to an answer on this question, you cannot delete your question that has multiple answers.

You can't delete any question that:

  • has an upvoted answer, or
  • has multiple answers (even if there are no upvotes)

Currently, your question has 3 answers (there are no votes on any of them).

  • Ahhh, so that's it.
