You see, there's this answer I posted. And I edited it adding new content. A lot. So much, in fact, that it turned into a community wiki answer. Now, this request may be a bit strange, but is it possible for a community wiki post to be turned back into a normal post? I suppose this is slightly related to this question on Meta Stack Overflow.

Yes, a moderator can revert CW status.

This is an automatically triggered anti-abuse measure, so it's up to a mod to decide whether the edits were abusive or not. Make a moderator flag.
