Can you delete older questions?

It's not giving me the option to.

    If the option to delete is gone it means the question has at least one answer and is not longer your property and can not be deleted.

    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.

    You can delete any of your own questions unless or until they receive even one answer, even if that answer is nothing but a dot.

    No, you can't. You can only delete questions that are unanswered.

    Not if you got even one answer. They are forever.

    You can delete any question that does not have an answer. Otherwise, you can't delete the question

    not if someone else has already answered them, no. your best chance is to report the answers. if those are approved, they will be taken off, then you can delete your question.

    otherwise, the most you can do is make your profile private so no one can view your page, along with making yourself anonymous every time.

      "approve" has nothing to do with it. Reports are not reviewed by a human, only appeals are
