A user cannot delete their own question. My understanding is that there are rare circumstances where one of the moderators might do it for you. If you want to give it a shot, flag your question and provide a reason.

This seems to be a stupid quirk of fluther. It seems one could have second thoughts and wish to withdraw the Q [or an A, for that matter] but the best that can be done is to edit the Q to something like “OOPS! I withdraw this question” and hope the mods will finish the job.
That’s what I do with answers that I regret.

If you flag the question and include the reason you wish to withdraw it in your flag, the moderation team will consider removing the question. When a question is removed, all the responses it received disappear too—the results of the time and effort that other jellies put into giving you a good answer, a rousing debate, or a nice conversation suddenly vanishes. It’s not fair or respectful to those who put effort and good faith into answering to remove questions left and right.

Unless, of course, you are still in the first few minutes of asking it. Then you can edit it like others suggest.

No, I believe only moderators can delete it.

I’ve often thought about this but presumed it wasn’t possible without good reason and going to the moderators…
