When an answer is converted into a comment, it is marked as "deleted". This can lead to great confusion as to why the answer was deleted, unless the moderator leaves a comment.
Either of these would prevent any confusion:
- Instead of writing "deleted" on the answer, write "converted into a comment."
- Automatically add a comment saying that "Your answer was converted into a comment for this post."

The convert to comment moderator function will now display the fact that an answer was converted to a comment after the next build.
EDIT: this is how it will appear
