My question has no answers, only a comment.

The button seems completely unresponsive and does not delete it. I remember that a while ago I was able to delete all my questions.

For example, I have a question which got hit by downvotes and was put on hold.

When it closed I had -3 votes. Today I had -5 and that made me lose all of my rep.

This also seems stupid. If the question was closed, what's the point of keeping the votes working?

  • If it is negatively voted and has no positively voted answers, it'l be deleted eventually. – Kevin B May 16 '18 at 16:10
  • The point is deleting it immediately, as it may be a dumb question that I'd like to remove or a question which is constantly getting downvotes. Waiting months while getting the first 3 days loads of downvotes doesn't seem fair. – user9549355 May 16 '18 at 16:11

    i mean... maybe try to learn from the experience so that you don't find yourself in this situation again? What was so wrong with the question that it's getting downvotes? Can it be improved? – Kevin B May 16 '18 at 16:12
  • Nope. Improving it would mean changing the question entirely, which should be called 'vandalization' here on SO. – user9549355 May 16 '18 at 16:15
  • @KevinB Lookint at OP profile, I guess it is this one stackoverflow.com/questions/50277182/… it can be improved, users said it lacks details for an answer, so add some? – Mark Kirby May 16 '18 at 16:16
  • that's not entirely accurate. Yes, some changes to a post can be considered vandalism, but you can improve a post without crossing that line. – Kevin B May 16 '18 at 16:16
  • Regardless, if you can't delete it, there must be something of value still linked to it. Care to provide a link? – Kevin B May 16 '18 at 16:18
  • @MarkKirby nope, the question is on the physics stack exchange. Editing that would effectively mean changing the whole context. Also, if you read that, there's no point in doing so as I have nothing to ask. – user9549355 May 16 '18 at 16:18
  • @rene I can't delete that unfortunately. – user9549355 May 16 '18 at 16:19
  • This one then? physics.stackexchange.com/questions/405619/… – Mark Kirby May 16 '18 at 16:20
  • @MarkKirby Yes. I can't delete that either. – user9549355 May 16 '18 at 16:20
  • @rene correct, but I still can't delete them. – user9549355 May 16 '18 at 16:21

    Check your browser console for errors, please, and post any that you find. This appears to be failing client-side. – Shog9 May 16 '18 at 16:22
  • @Shog9 This is the only thing I get : Loading failed for the <script> with source “https://secure.quantserve.com/quant.js”. I am using Firefox quantum. The warning is caused by uBlock. Disabling it doesn't work either. – user9549355 May 16 '18 at 16:23
  • Just edited my previous comment. As said, it's my Adblocker. Disabling it won't work either. – user9549355 May 16 '18 at 16:27
