I can't delete my own question.


After reading this question

How does deleting work? What can cause a post to be deleted, and what does that actually mean? What are the criteria for deletion?

I assume, that it's because the question has more than 2 answers and more than 2 votes and maybe because it is popular question.

So I found this question

Should delete votes be limited like close votes?

It's needed 1 vote of deletion for every 20 votes of the question + 3 botes votes. The question has 26 votes at this moment, so I consider we need 5 votes for deletion. At this moment there are 7 votes and it's not enough.

My question's are:

1) How much votes is left?

2) Can I see my own deleted questions?

Thank you.

P.S. Maybe I misunderstood something or didn't pay attention to some information in faq. If so just point me the right link.

Actually, it's 1 delete vote for every 20 votes on the question or any of its answers... The total number of such votes is currently 159, making the number of delete votes required 7+3=10.

  • hmm..how do you get the 159? Is there any way to count it automatically?

  • If there is, I don't know about it. Just scrolled and started summing... So yeah, might be off.

  • It's definitely 159. And my vote doesn't count in any case, right?

  • It should... If it lets you vote. Not sure how that all works at present.

  • Ok. Might want to just flag for a moderator's attention then.

  • Ok, thanks, flagged it. And what about to be able to see your own deleted question. Is there any possibility?

  • @hgulyan: once you have >= 10K reputation points, you'll be able to see it (assuming you kept a link - it won't appear in your profile). 'Til then, you're best off saving it somewhere else...

  • I have it on my computer and after(if) I'll get to 10k, I won't even remember about my question.

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
