You can't, just fix the error and resubmit.

I think it would be useful to have the delete option back. It ends up being less noise, especially if you do something really silly like submit the wrong file(s) entirely like the tests instead of the solution, etc. In my case I submitted the tests and solution and would like the replace it with just the solution.

There is also a privacy/security issue where someone may have submitted a wrong file or whatever. It seems useful to be able to delete a submission in such a case.

I do remember being annoyed in the old exercism if I wrote useful feedback and then someone takes that on board but deletes the old submission "to erase" any bad code and then my hard work commenting would be deleted as well...

Bumping this because I made yet another bad submit. I guess I'm clumsier than the average exercist? 😈

I would echo the desire for a delete submission method.

Perhaps deleting an iteration could work in such a way that comments are not deleted:

  • When an iteration is deleted, the submitted code is removed from the database (for privacy), and the iteration is marked as deleted.
  • If a deleted iteration already has comments by anyone other than the exercist, the iteration is shown in the track, but clicking it only shows the comments and not any code (since there isn't any).
  • If a mentor starts commenting on an iteration that then gets deleted, allow for adding the comment to that deleted iteration so that it's shown.

I don't know how this plays into how the UI works when exercists submit new iterations while you're commenting on an old one, but perhaps the same kind of notification one might get when commenting on something out-of-date is appropriate here, too.

Just replying to point out that this is marked as on the roadmap, which you can see at exercism.io/roadmap and will give you an indication of its priority etc :)
