How can I delete questions off of here, yahoo answers? I have old questions that I don’t want up anymore. Is there any way to delete them?

you can only delete your question if it has no answers on it if there are
no answers on it to delete it click on the x delete question button under the
blue edit menu once there is answers on it you wont be able to delete it
yahoo use to allow delete requests if you email them nicely if you had
personal information on your question but they don't allow that anymore tho

You CANNOT delete answered questions. The questions and all the answers are Verizon Media property. Even if your questions are reported enough times that they are deleted from the YA DISPLAY the questions are still in one or more digital databases.

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't delete them once they have answers. Yahoo considers all content on this site to be THEIR property to do with as they wish. I don't like it, but that's how they run the site and if we want to participate we don't have a choice.

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