change community wiki question to a regular one?

If someone marks a question as a community wiki by mistake. Is there a way to change that? By themselves or via a moderator?

Please add the [community-wiki] tag to this question.

So a moderator can revert the wiki state, but since you have to go to the django page for the question, there is a bug since that page requires a follower for a question.

Davy, sorry I do not understand this - could you explain in more detail? How does the bug show itself? Which django page for the question do you mean - django admin?

When I go into the django admin site and go to /admin/askbot/question/21/ you can set the wiki boolean to false, but if you try to save, it will say that you need to fill in "followed by" (I guess somewhere it says it shouldn't be null?)

We'll look at it on Sunday. Must be a bug, thank you.

@Evgeny, what is the status of the bug?

Right now - not possible. Probably it should be reserved to moderators and maybe by the author if nobody else contributed by the time author changes his mind?

Until this feature is implemented, is it possible to do this from the shell?

Nevermind, I misread the answer above, and now I have done so via the Django panel.
