I was searching through site when I came upon this question. https://islam.stackexchange.com/q/1644/4710

I'm sure everyone agrees that it's off topic by an extent that no edit can help it. But it's still around and even a mod also answered it. Please, being [closed] doesn't make it go out of access.

  • But my Q is that, wouldn't it be good if also the community can vote for deletion?? at least I can't see that option. Or we should just wait and see what mods would do, I guess?

pzl shed on some light here,

There is a delete vote that is available only for high rep user. For Beta sites, you need 2k rep points in order to vote for delete. The question must be closed/on-hold for more than 48 hours for this option to be available. 3 delete votes are needed to delete the question. I believe moderator can delete posts on their own as we have seen a lot of posts have been deleted here by moderators.

  • thanks, but 2k?? just to vote for delete? uhhh that explains why that post is still there after a whole year.
