I did a fiddle (public I think) and then logged in and forked the first one to get it into my fiddles. Now I want to delete the first fiddle.

Is it possible to delete a fiddle?

If yes, how do you do that?

I can understand if this is not possible by design as the first one is public and people could destroy valuable information this way, if that would be possible.

For a public fiddle, you can follow these steps or mail to the jsfiddle admins – Paolo Gibellini Nov 5 '13 at 23:20
I'm not sure I understood this correctly but if you created the first fiddle anonymously before logging in and forking it under your login I would assume that you cannot explicitly delete the previous anonymous fiddle as no one owns it (How does jsFiddle know you owned the anonymous fiddle?). However, if you are talking about deleting a fiddle you created while being logged in then you can do that from your dashboard, hovering over the fiddle's title shows you a delete icon to the left of it you can click. – François Wahl Nov 18 '13 at 14:48
If the solution proposed by @FrançoisWahl worked for you, you could let him know so he could post his suggestion as an answer. – Kevin Fegan Jan 26 '14 at 0:43

No. Looks like there's no way to delete an anonymously-created fiddle.

However, as far as I know there is no public index of anonymous fiddles, so if you never give the URL to anyone, there is very little chance anyone will ever see it again.

Still, don't ever go pasting sensitive data in JSFiddle… but of course you know that already.
