How do I delete a question I have asked?

Update:

WOW Yahoo. Great to see how a big company has ZERO ethical consideration of its customers.

    IF your question on Yahoo Answers has no answers yet, you can just go into your question and select Edit>Delete. (make sure your mobile device is in desktop mode, if using a mobile)

    IF your question on Yahoo Answers DOES have ANY answers, it cannot be deleted. The only way to get it removed if it has answers from others, from that point on, is to have enough accounts report it as a violation, so the system removes it from the display. You cannot edit or change the info you posted, either. All you can do is add updates to clarify it, or make yourself Anonymous (Edit>Post as Anonymous) to hide your identity.

    This is probably the single most asked question, over time, in the Yahoo Answers subcategory. You can save points and time in the future, by doing a search at the top of the page (type in your question or keywords and press "Search Answers"), to see if the question you have has already been asked/answered. How to delete questions has been asked/answered literally thousands of times since the site was created.

    Click on the edit button, go in that drop down menu, and then press the delete button. You can only do this if your question has no answers yet.

    Ethical considerations? When you signed up, you were given a copy of the rules of the site and you agreed to them. If you want a specific question gone, get a bunch of users to report it as a violation.

    Click on edit. If there are no answers a delete link appears. If there is an answer the delete option is removed.

    You can only delete them if they have no answers. Click on 'Edit' beside your question and then delete it.

    You can't once it has an answer, but if no one answer it, click the blue edit button on the question page itself and click delete question (you might have to be in desktop mode to do it if you are using a phone)
