What should I do if I want to delete my answer completely instead of the regular delete which just locks the answer?

    There is no such thing as "locking" an answer, so I'm not sure what you mean. A deleted answer will still be visible to you, moderators, and the very high rep folks.

  • Yeah, that's what I meant by "locked". It gets frozen but still visible.

  • It isn't visible to most of the community, you know.
