Today I was presented with flag review screen which showed some flags for review.

For some of the posts, I had 2 buttons: "flag" and "delete answer"

But for others, I only had the "flag" button, even though they were flagged as "not an answer".

Why the discrepancy? Was the "delete" button only available after the post accumulates a certain threshold of flags?


The "delete" button is only available if you have the right to delete it. As a trusted-user (+20k) you have the right to vote to delete answers with score of -1 or lower.

  • Oh. I forgot about the "score <=-1 part" - good catch! – DVK-on-Ahch-To Mar 15 '13 at 13:32
