Need help deleting a custom field

Ok, so I accidentally created a custom field called "Version" and attached it to my project "ManageMe."
http://managemebugs.myjetbrains.com/

First, I try to detach it.
I go to:
http://managemebugs.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/editProject/MM#project-tab=Fields
When I try to detach it, I get "Detach field 'Version' from project?"

I click OK and get "This field is not empty in 92 issues. After field deletion these values will be lost.
Do you want to continue?"

I click "Yes" and the custom field becomes grayed out, but is still there.


Then, I try to delete it.
I go to http://managemebugs.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/customFieldsConfiguration

I click "Delete" and see "All field instances will be removed and you won't be able undo this operation.Delete this field?"

I click "Yes" and there's no response.

What am I doing wrong?
Let me know if I can provide more info...

Hello, Jeffrey!
Does the field stays grey on http://managemebugs.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/editProject/MM#project-tab=Fields even if you refresh page?

No, after refreshing the page, the field turns back to blue!

Halp!
Is there another way to manually delete a custom field?
We'll be migrating this to our own hosting eventually.

Jeffrey, sorry for delay. I'll check your database tomorrow and see what's wrong with it. What field are you trying to delete? Did you ever changed its type?

The field used to be called "version" but I've since changed it to "delete this"

I've tried changing the type a few times now. But, I can only choose between version[*] and version[1]

Thanks so much for your help in advance!
