I'm a moderator at money.SE, and I'm trying to convert the following question to a community wiki:

In Ireland & want to buy stock online. What cheap discount stock brokers offer online trading for the EU?

However, the system is reporting in a yellow box (orange on SO, pictured. -BtL):

An exception occurred during conversion to wiki

Tried a few times, no luck, same error each time.

+1. Cannot CW-ize a question in math.SE either. – kennytm Oct 26 '10 at 13:14
Seeing the same thing on SO. – Bill the Lizard Oct 26 '10 at 15:45
Yeah, looks like the only way to do it right now is to edit and check the wiki box. But then you have to do it for all the answers individually. – mmyers Oct 26 '10 at 15:47
@mmyers: D'oh! Forgot about the old school method. Thanks. :) – Bill the Lizard Oct 26 '10 at 17:55

This was my bad; sorry for the bug.

A fix will be pushed in tonight's deployment.

What can we do to make Community Wiki better?

Thanks for the pointer. Reading that, though, I'm led to believe moderators should still be able to convert something to CW (see Aarobot's comment). I'm a moderator at money.SE, but I can't convert to CW. – Chris W. Rea Oct 26 '10 at 15:08
Oh, whoops. I didn't see that part. This is likely the cause of the error, though, so it may be a bug since this is a fairly recent change. – Corey Oct 26 '10 at 15:11
It's not the cause of the error. Mod-convert-to-CW was working for a long time after that change. This is a new bug. – Aarobot Oct 26 '10 at 21:01
