Qlemo - I think those options you have linked to, are out date.
Have a look this Administrative comment by Moderato in my question.
Unfortunately to have your question deleted right away, you have to request attention. Catch-22.
==================================================================================
  • There is no way to instantly delete a question.
  • To delete with hours, click on Request Attention and ask (giving a reason)
  • To delete in four days, close the question normally, accepting one of your own replies as the correct answer.
    (You should include a request to delete in the closing comment)

EDIT: I think the 4 days only comes into the equation, if other experts have replied to the question
you are trying to delete.

Yes, Delete Question is still there, Eirman ... Moderato has been referring to the "immediate" deletion without having to wait 4 days until it is processed.

Sorry Qlemo - You were correct - The delete Button Function is still there (as I illustrated above).
However, the instructions you referred to, do need to be updated.
To delete your question, click the "Delete Question" button in the lower right-hand corner of your question body
Is obviously out-of-date.

Is there anything else we may assist you with?  Were you able to find the delete question option?
