Can I delete my own questions?

I can't find an option to do so.

@Robert Horan  No you can't delete questions from community!

Can someone do this on my behalf then?

Community leaders can move them to another topic (we have an "off topic" category for stuff that really isn't Atlassian based, but we don't want to completely kill because it's an innocent mistake rather than spam or offensive).

There's a special topic of "removed posts" which we would use for stuff you want deleted - only Leaders and Atlassians can see posts in it (and they don't appear in feeds even when we can see them) and I think it gets cleaned out sometimes - stuff over a couple of months old is binned as pointless.  (Bit of time to move them back if there's a mistake)

Give one of us a pointer to what you want removed, and any one of us seeing the request will move it to removed for you.  (If you comment on the post, we might not be watching it, so we won't get the comment, and you'll be relying on a leader/atlassian seeing it.  If you comment here, @DPK J and I will be mailed, so one of us will get it for you)

Thanks!  I wanted to delete this question:

I had originally tried to create this with my personal account but I mixed up browsers.

I moved it to "removed",  but I didn't want to.

I's a damn good question with a good answer.  I don't want to remove it because the conversation might help others.

But it is yours and you don't want it to be public.  If I have got it right (please, check, and tell us), it's all private again.

Oh, if it's helpful then please move it back :)

Sorry, I thought maybe it was an inappropriate question at first.
