    i think there is a delete option under your post... beside the 'edit' ... etc – ultrajohn Mar 15 '10 at 5:18

  • @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. – fretje Sep 19 '14 at 15:45

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 Nov 7 '12 at 16:02
  • @User, if they are voted up -- you can delete the question if the answers have a score less than or equal to 0 – juan Nov 7 '12 at 16:15
  • Ok thanks for clarification, your statement "You can only delete it if you have no answers" confused me. – User Nov 7 '12 at 16:17

    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. – Daniel Dropik Apr 11 '14 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.
