    i think there is a delete option under your post... beside the 'edit' ... etc

  • @janaspage the whole account system has had quite some changes since I added that previous comment... it's not relevant anymore, so I deleted it.

There's a delete underneath the tags to the question that is visible to you if you asked it.

However, you won't be able to delete a question if it has answers voted up by the community (or if you accepted one of those answers)

You can only delete it if you have non upvoted answers.

  • Wait, you can only delete if you have no answers at all or only delete if the answers you have have not been upvoted?

  • @User, if they are voted up -- you can delete the question if the answers have a score less than or equal to 0

  • Ok thanks for clarification, your statement "You can only delete it if you have no answers" confused me.

    Also if you have a question that is down voted, and you delete it, then it appears to remove the negative reputation associated with that question. Commented Apr 11, 2014 at 16:05

There's a delete underneath the tags to the question that is visible to you if you asked it. It's subtle and missable.
