After identify-this-* questions was discontinued, I have no interest in remaining on this site - partly because it was the type of questions I myself wanted answered, and partly because it tipped me onto lots of great movies and shows.

Before I leave, I would like to mark these question of mine for deletion - they're after all now considered off-topic. Unfortunately - since they've been closed and locked - I don't have the delete question option available.

So could someone please just delete following questions (and their answers):

Man and two children, cross-country car-drive, Italian, late 1980s, cinema-movie

Young black girl shot at basketball-court, leg twitch

TV-series, 1980s, British, city, working-class-people, apartment-block, fall from window, children taken

TV news-station, San Diego, late 1970s, reporting news vs. selling sensation

Young American man studying in Paris meets young French couple

Yes, I know StackExchange technically "own" my questions and their answers, but since you obviously don't want this type of questions any longer, that ought to be a moot point... And no, I rather not have them there for "historical" reasons, since they - tagged and explained as they are - now looks like they were "bad" and "illegal" questions from the beginning.

    If it's concidered off-topic and will be sort-of hidden, why do you? But to answer your question; because I'll still be using the rest of the site, and I don't want to be "remembered" in here as someone who asked a lot of bad/illegal questions - which it now looks like I did. Besides, I usually ask for the deletion of any questions I've ask that gets tagged as "off-topic" or is downvoted below 0... I would simply like to leave this place the way I found it - without any questions I've asked. – Baard Kopperud Feb 25 '18 at 13:09
  • Remember, though, that we haven't stopped serving plot-explanation questions, so even according to your above expressed views there doesn't seem to be much of a reason to delete this one (unless this is more of a general attempt to rage-quit and make a fuss about it). – Napoleon Wilson Feb 25 '18 at 13:10

    If they were good questions, the votes should speak for themselves. I assumed you meant leave in the literal, so the questions wouldn't have your name on them. When you ask to disassociate yourself, your questions become attributed to the Community user. – Gnemlock Feb 25 '18 at 13:24

We had set a criteria for removing old Identification questions. Those which meet this criteria are kept but locked. They'll be kept locked to avoid editing and appearing in the question list.

From this meta question about ID cleanup,

Thus we will be deleting all existing identification questions unless they meet all of the following criteria:

  • They have a score of +5 or more.
  • They have at least one answer with a score of +3 or more.

Since, your questions meet these criteria, therefore they are not deleted. They are apparently good questions. However, you can ask for disassociation, but these questions will not be deleted.

While talking about leaving, I will say the same as said by the author of the above post.

To those who appreciated identification questions and are sorry to see them go, we know you exist and we are sorry that this site didn't turn out to share your interest. Hopefully you still find this a worthwhile place and are willing to keep contributing to its content. We want your content and we know your film expertise goes beyond just recognizing a movie's story.

Though, the identification questions are no longer on-topic, but it doesn't mean that you cannot stay here. There are lots of areas that this site covers and you can contribute to.
