Five days ago I have completed my little research on the size of one's vocabulary necessary to read German newspapers. I wanted to share it with the community using the Stackechange functionality of "Answer your own question". I had something to say in the answer, but failed to elegantly formulate the question and its body, which has resulted in heavy downvoting and ultimately "on hold" status. Since then I've reformulated the question. Two individuals have voted to reopen my question (two individuals have also marked my question as their favorite one). However, reopening of a question seems to proceed extremely slow, as opposed to closing one.
So, I'd like to inquire whether deleting my current answer, then deleting my question (to prevent the system from blocking my account for deleting a question which already has an answer), and then re-asking it would be appropriate?
