What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Just like there is a "vote to delete" system I would like a "vote to convert to comment". So when an answer is clearly not an answer I can vote for it to be made a comment. If X people vote the same way it is converted.

While I like the idea, I imagine it will get shot down or ignored, just like vote to community wiki did. – Powerlord Dec 1 '10 at 22:14
This has been suggested as a 20k power. – dmckee Dec 1 '10 at 22:16
The main issue will be where to pin the comment. Some of these responses may be comments on other answers rather than the question. – APC Dec 1 '10 at 22:17
I have suggested this be implemented as a moderator power: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/35175/… – Jon Seigel Dec 1 '10 at 22:43

This is now implemented, moderators can convert posts to comments.

If you think something should be a comment please flag it.

We seriously need to move this to 10k mods. – Won't Apr 5 '11 at 20:55
