Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.
