I was wondering if I could regain ownership of the following post from last week.

Evaluating the log gamma integral $\int_{0}^{z} \log \Gamma (x) \, \mathrm dx$ in terms of the Hurwitz zeta function

    $\begingroup$ This should really have been a flag on the question rather than a question on meta. $\endgroup$

Here's a post from Meta Stack Overflow that addresses it: Is there a way to remove community wiki status?

Here's the relevant snippet from the answer to that question (by Jeff Atwood)

Yes—community moderators, at their discretion, can now remove community wiki status from particular posts.

(blurb explaining when posts are automatically made community wiki)

However, if you feel your post has been unfairly converted to community wiki and deserves special treatment, you can flag it for moderator attention and plead your case to a community moderator.

    $\begingroup$ This is indeed the best course of action. Remember to flag the post as "other" and explain why you think it should be un-CW-ed. $\endgroup$ Oct 24, 2013 at 22:48
