Add the option to change a post to QA format by admin/staff

We have added the Q&A format to our Discourse account but it is pretty hidden right now and it has been challenging to get the community to use it for their questions. Is it possible to slow admins to change a message to Q&A format after it is posted? That way we can start educating the community members about this option.

It can be similar to the option for switching topics to personal messages and vice versa. :point_down:

This would be nice but how would the answers and comments be determined. I would say what replies to each other but some times they donโ€™t reply to a posts but a topic.

Good point! I think thatโ€™s another level of editing that needs to be added. Just thinking loud:

  1. Admin changes the topic to Q/A format.
  2. All the current replies are changed to answers.
  3. Admin has the option to select and change the answers to comments. This is similar to how one can select the replies right now and move them to a new topic.
