I couldn't find an option to edit or delete my question - I spelt it wrong so I wanted to correct myself and there was no such possibility. I know there is such an option for comments and answers so I can edit them for few more minutes but nothing for questions.
I have asked people if they know about a way to do so but looks like nobody can help.
It would be really useful I believe - I feel quite embarrassed now when my misspelled question is viewed by many people as it triggered quite a lot of answers
No there is no way to either edit or delete a question once you have hit that submit button. It would be nice if we could. I would not worry about it though as I think many of us have made typos when submitting questions.
I suppose, if it really was a big issue, you could open an answer to your question and make the correction there.
I know there is no option to edit the question. But I think you can write to Hubpages staff. They are the authority and will help you out.
Last time I checked, you cannot update, edit or delete a question. However, under "activity", under "my account", you can close a question that you began. Unless, HP took that feature away with it's unannounced changes.

Do you think that you should have the option to delete comments you made on someone else's hub?You have ten minutes to change your comment, but do you think that you should have the option to later delete a comment if you change your mind?

I really like the new Q&A feature on individual hubs. What I'd like to know is if there's a way to delete a question if it's inappropriate?For example, I have one now. Let's say the hub is about apple pies, their origin and history, and the question is 'What is apple?' That's just a made up...

Many of you have pointed out that it would be nice to edit Questions right after they have been posted (it's always embarrassing to find typos AFTER one hits submit), so the ever-fabulous Ari Lamstein made it possible for you to edit your Questions- so long as no Answers have been submitted.Thanks...

I notice sometimes, it seems, I can edit or delete a comment I've made on the forums, and then other times I can't. Is there a reason for that? Edit: I'm editing this post 2 hours after I posted it, for instance. So, I'm not certain time is a factor. Just as a time-stamp, calculus-geometry replied...
