So I tried deleting a question, my question. I'm not a mod, but I have reputation above 10k. I received this message after hitting delete, asking me to make sure I wanted to:
But after clicking Delete Question, I saw this:
It turns out that because the question has answers, I'm prohibited from deleting it. If I can't actually delete this question at all, could it just tell me immediately, and only show me the warning if I can actually delete it?
This is akin to the following analogy.
You see a flyer in your local paper stating there's a new burger shop opening. Great, you think to yourself, and rush over to get yourself some burgers. On your way into the parking lot, you see a huge banner proclaiming one of their newest burgers. You see some employees walk in and out of the restaurant, with T-Shirt with pictures of burgers on them. Great, you think to yourself, and walk in. You get in line, and after what seems like ages, you finally make it to the front. You look up at the menu. You see that they also sell sandwiches. No, you tell yourself, I'm looking for burgers. You see that they also sell burritos! No, you tell yourself, I'm looking for burgers. Then you see that they sell burgers. Great! You pick out a burger, then tell the employee at the register, "Sir, I'd like to get a regular burger please." Immediately, the employee looks up, with a quizzical look on his face, saying "Sir? We don't sell burgers here.".
It's the same situation. I've come to that prompt so that I can delete a question. After repeated messages and windows letting me know the consequences of deleting, what will happen after I have it deleted, I am told that the option of having it deleted by my own hand never existed in the first place.
